    Re: Please help me fix this tractor.

    Aluminium kan dalk te sag wees. Jy kan koper busbar by elektriese groothandelaars koop. Mens kry dit in 300mm stukke.

  14. Re: Pajero given the final nail in the coffin......what a shame

    I have read somewhere that the Pajero would use Patrol underpinnings. Saw an article that says the Y62 Patrol is also on short notice. The reason why the Pajero is canned? Maybe.
