There should be two lights in the switch .... red = activated but not yet locked, green = activated and locked.

If the dents aren't bad you can carefully pop / roll them out, but if there are creases in the metal you will have to panel beat & re-spray.

Creases as in sharp angles of the folds in the dent. If you're not OK with it, it might be better to send it in and let a pro do it .... could actually save you a few rands.

School fees! We all make mistakes, but as long as you learn from them it's not all in vain. ;-)

Good day mates. I'm busy with a v6 heart plant into my 22r Yota. The motor is in already. I'm struggling a bit with the clutch. I fitted a 22R fork and bearing and a courier V6 slave. The slave pin is too short even after little extension, i still won't get the gears. Any word of advice please.

Compliments of the season :taunt:
