Re: Help needed with dust into loading bin

Thanks for all the valuable replies! The canopy is in today to have a sliding window fitted for "other reasons', so I will now have the option to open this sliding window. (That rubber seal is not doiing it for me - leaking + noise + most of all, the scuffing of paitwork.) I don't have much time to ...

Help needed with dust into loading bin

Hi there,
I have a KZTE D/C and would like some advice please. I need to make the lid of the loading bin more "dust proof". With the canopy on, it seems most of the dust entres at the vertical space between the tail lights and the lid (agterklap). There is a huge gap visible.

Any comments?
Regards

Hi Justin,
Also a good idea to verify if the new model will fit into your garage. A friend of mine is battling to get it into his garage - it is huge in lenght and width.

Is there a real difference in diesel brands that we get in the Western Cape, and if so, which would you recommend for a KZTE motor?

Re: KZTE vs 2.7i

Jaws, Thanks for the information.
I did phone around, and the lower priced ones have lots of km's. The last one looks the best, but I am "versigtig" for a vehichle with a performance conversion done to it!

Would your call be to go for the KZTE rather that petrol?

Die verwysing na kamertemp. is nogal misleidend. In Europa is "kamertemp" baie naby aan ons verkoelde temp. Niks fout daarmee om rooi wyn, nadat oopgemaak, te verkoel.

Hi Benhur, Nee, jou box wyn het nie gefermenteer, maar wel in kontak met suurstof begin oksideer! Die oksidaie proses is wyn se groot vyand! Die "afgaan van wyn" kan beprek word deur dit vinniger te drink, of nadat dit oopgemaak is, te verseel en koud te stoor. Koue temp. sal die oksidasie proses ve...
