If it was me, I'd rather go for a genuine (i.e. TD42) belt kit; because even if the emergency belt brings you home, you'll have to buy a replacement belt anyway. (The ZD30 only has 1 belt though)

Ek het een van daai oranje goed onder my agtersitplek. Hoop egter ek het hom nooit nodig nie, want hy vul nie my gemoed met vertroue nie. Maar dalk werk hulle tog?

Mag ons ons kenniskry met lekkerkry aanhoukry.

Sjo sykouse? Ek het ook al dit gehoor, maar ek weet darem nie of hulle die pyp sal kan rook nie.

Daai oranja ding is seker betee as niks, maar ek het nog nooit een in aksie gesien nie.

Ek ry maar met n stel van my ou belde in my toolboks

I just kept the old belts from my last belt change and they are cable tied to the inner side of the chassis in case I ever need them.

When I change again next time I will replace them with the newer old ones.

Once back I will definitely post a short report with some photos.
I'm sure there are folks out there with either limited time or funds- or both - who would like to do the easier trips first and I hope to help a bit with the report once done.
Did you ever manage to put a report together? Ide be very interested to read it.
