    Re: Height indicating "antenna"

    This will be mounted on the top edge of the bullbar, so basically ahead of the leading edge of the bonnet. My bar is similar to the one below, so will make use of one of the upper, what I assume to...

    Re: Height indicating "antenna"

    It would indeed be a dummy antenna as I do not have a radio and have no intention of fitting one. This will purely be an indication of height that you can see ahead of you as an early warning...

    Height indicating "antenna"

    I need to mount an antenna of sorts on my bullbar that is the same height as the top of the RTT. This to prevent me driving underneath something lower than the RTT and thus damaging it.

    Re: Underbody spray photos

    The local Waxoyl guys (who are the official Waxoyl agents in SA) clean the rust etc off by dry ice blasting.

    Re: White metal casting for restoration

    You need to look at your phone! ;D

    Your casings are ready. I need to go through to Walmer in a little while so can drop them off if you want.

    Awesome job there, Herman. Just 2 things to note.

    Next step is to modify the hole slightly, like so.

    It is not quite finished yet. Still needs a larger hole in the centre and a locking screw.

    Trapvoet Pass?

    Has anyone done Trapvoet Pass just North of Beaufort West? If so, opinions?

    Is it worth the detour? We will be headed for Verneukpan and it's a route we haven't done before.

    My CAD skill are a little more basic than the average. Cardboard box, sellotape, pencil, sharp knife.

    You would need a serious 3D printer for that. This thing is over 1 meter long.

    This is most likely the reason why you cannot buy the bush loose. It is probably fitted to the casing and then machined.
