Dis dalk moontlik, maar Kensington is ver van Sandton af.

Ek gaan so nou en dan daai rigting, dan sal ek jou laat weet. Laat haar solank die extension werk toe vat, dan sal dit makilier wees as ek op kort kennisgewing soontoe gaan.

Hi Everybody, maybe the DIY'ers will find this usefull. My sunday hack on the left door stay bracket made out of a small section of square tubing. The tubing is slighty wider than the hinge section of the stay, I just packed the gap with three washers either side, 8mm bolt and a nylock nut....and a lick of paint. Sorted.

Hi JP, went to go measure quick, had to use a ruler, so measurement not in microns :wink:

20mm Square tubing (OD), 50mm in lenght, holes centre to centre 30mm.

Hope this helps.
