Simon, mine was always "dark grey" along the bottom since I got it 5 years ago. Just added the re-sprayed black rims :D:

Now you just need the black rims :mrgreen:

Thanks for the comments

Got back from the recovery demo just now.

We met at 3PM and headed to the open ground via a sandtrack at the back of the NMMU University.

We had a mixture of vehicles, Touareg, Nissan TeranoII, 80 Series Cruiser, Lanrover Defender and a Jeep Rubicon of Dirk's from 4x4 Community, along with the Colt and Triton of Chris and Barto from EC Offroad Adventures.

There was a snatch strap recovery demo, and a winch recovery demo.

Thanks Andrew :thumbup:

I tried that difficult hill you didn't get up and boy, did you dig some serious holes :twisted: I eventually made it on the third attempt basically ploughing through on my bash plate as the holes where deeper than my little triton could reach with it's feet.

When your road comes to an end ...... you need a HILUX!.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!
