    Re: RED DUST! How do I get it off?

    I am sure a good car detailing outfit will be able to get it off, maybe first by "claying" and then a good buff.

    Re: Mecer charging lithium battery

    Excellent answer - thanks very much! I love the Mecer 1200 720W because it is relatively quiet at 10A charging and at the loads we are running it most of the time (< 400W), one can hardly hear it....

    Re: Mecer charging lithium battery

    Re: Mecer charging lithium battery

    Thanks for confirming our suspicion. We ran it on a 150W (measured) load, so it would be unthinkable the battery could still be that full!

    Re: Pajero sport front prop universals

    Re: Pajero 3.2 (Gen 4) - servicing cost

    R 6000 for such a basic service is indeed insane. My 2c's worth of comments:

    1) Is 2.5 hours for this type of service not too much in an OE environment?

    2) Possibly unnecessary to replace the...
