Re: Water storage

I got 2 1000l flow bins for R250 about a year ago. Now you are lucky if you get 1 for less than R1000!! I now use them for grey water storage to flush loo's and to water the 3 plants we have left in the garden. Then I also have a 2500l JoJo for rainwater which we use for the washing machine. We are ...

Re: Building custom camper

Those camper shells are perfect for single-cab or extra-cab Hiluxes, but on the double-cab there is way too much weight behind the rear axle. besides that, the front of the load bin attaches to the chassis just in front of the rear axle, and at that point is where it will bend the chassis when these...

Re: Custom rollbar under alucab

Why do you want to retain the roll bar under the aluminium canopy? It just takes up a lot of very useful space and adds unnecessary weight? And an Aluminium canopy will do the same job as a normal roll bar. Google it, there are lots of roll-over picks proving it.
