    He said "collectors item". Sad to say but I reckon the new Defender 90, and 110 for that matter, is going the D3 and D4 route - nice to have under a plan but it ain't gonna be no collectors item.
  5. Re: Pajero given the final nail in the coffin......what a shame

    People buy the Pajero and Defender for totally different reasons.

    Most Pajero's are auto and very easy to live with on a daily basis. You get a much better 50/50 (road/off-road) vehicle with a...

  9. Re: Is it possible to get side mirror glass cut that is automotive grade?

    Sorry yes, I meant convex not concave.
  10. Re: Is it possible to get side mirror glass cut that is automotive grade?

    It must be slightly convex to allow for a wider angle of view and on the driver's side it has a bit of a blind spot angle to it as well in some cases.

    Heeltemal korrek, die aste self sluit nie maar die krag tussen die aste word eweredig verdeel. Sonder die knoppie in word die krag outomaties versprei tussen voor en agter soos dit benodig word.
