Current fire arm license

Does anyone know what the current fire arm license involves? With me leaving do I just hand it in or can a friend take it over if he gets his license. I hear in some cases the license has gone back to the old system.

Re: Reset fuel light on a 3.0 D4D Hilux

With our diesel in SA I recomend you replace the filter at every service. To reset the light is quick and easy - With ignition off, unplug the top plug from the fuel filter housing, Start the vehicle and quickly put the plug back in. Light will go off after 3 sec. Job done. 10 seconds.

Re: Chassis galv or spray

If its for a older shape land cruizer then its a bad idea. The chassis is made to twist when off roading and galvanising will make it to riged. So when it does eventually get to a point of twisting it cracks the galvanising and rusts the chassis at that point.
