I replied to this last night but Whoosh!! - the reply vanished.

Martin, when you bring my rims I will let you take a peek at the manual... :cooldude:

Please remember to check the VIN number to see if it falls under the recall TSA has to replace the drive shafts (free of charge).

I went yesterday to check if that Vigo fitted with every accessory under the sun was still available, had the sudden urge to trade Hound Dog in on it but it had been sold the day before (Wednesday) to some lucky sod in East London. Win some, lose some, dunno why I did not think of doing so earlier.

Congrats, makes an awesome overland vehicle, we pack ours to the hilt.
just glad I kept my SFA, don't like slow rolling and pitching of an IFS, but like the SFA it pretty much can go anywhere.

Hi Martin

Weetnie maar dit klink goed. :thumbup: Nou moet jy die Prado ook inrig soos jou SFA.

Jy gaan agterkom jy moet baie mooier pak en beplan as met n d/c. Dan moet seker maak die goed stamp nie teen mekaar nie anders gaan die geraas jou mal maak op a slegte pad. As dit agter in die bak van n bakkie is hoor jy dit nie. Maar die goed bly skoner in n suv. Maar ek is seker jy gaan die projek geniet.
