    I know that many manufacturers use plastic thermostat housings but isn't that a recipe for disaster?

    If you have Aircon then you are good to go.

    Re: Landrover - you have truly saddened me..

    At the cost of sounding like a broken record, main dealers (of all brands) have lost the ability to repair vehicles.

    They are 'new parts fitting centres'.

    The bigger the part, the better.

    Re: Sub R150k 4x4 challenge

    Only options 1,2 and 4 are viable, for what you want.

    With 15 yrs old vehicles, however, even with those 3 there will always be some costs.

    Correct. As the snorkel head overlaps the pipe, it forms a sort of circular guttering on the inside and the water then exits through the slits.

    This is Africa, you need to get there and get your folks there without any hassles.

    Why should pipes perish after 10 years?
