    Re: These Ford engines are crap.

    Had one on my TD5, I tried to get a madman fitted to my puma but eventually gave up after being messed around by a fitter and not being able to find another. Pity as it’s a good product

    Saying its a POS without knowing its history and with 170k kms on it is a bit unfair. I have a few...

  13. Re: Mapungubwe NP - My attempt at a video Trip Report

    A few things I would suggest:

    - try spend at least one night camping at Mazhou campsite - its...

  18. Re: Mapungubwe NP - My attempt at a video Trip Report

    We stayed at Mazhou Campsite.

    I would say most of the park is accessable by a normal sedan but in some places you will need a bit of clearance. Also some of the roads are pretty badly corrugated...

    Re: Defender decals

    Speak to Marius at Ink Monkey Wraps.

    Also be careful what vinyl is used. You get good and bad vinyl and some of the bad vinyl can damage your paint. Marius will only use the good stuff.
