    Re: Howling Moon Tent

    This is good advice. But I normally just smear on several coats of nuproof on the seams. It gets absorbed / dries so fast that by one can put several coats on the seams whilst painting a single...

    Re: Howling Moon Tent

    I use Nuproof from Outdoor warehouse. I paint on the outside only. Works well.

    Very nice. But you know that that silver GRX will not have (cue choirs of angels singing) Super Select. And that would be a deal breaker...

    Re: Gd6 Hilux: Water on the floor?

    I mention it just for awareness sakes. But at the same point, I doubt that the condensor was designed to drain into the vehicle.

    Re: Gd6 Hilux: Water on the floor?

    Are you sure it is just water and not coolant ?

    I would suggest checking coolant.levels. The heater matrix sits behind the cubbyhole in a very large number of vehicles.

    Re: Radiator motor on a switch ?

    As I mentioned earlier, I imagine the thinner cables are sendor wires. But I do not know the fans, or even what vehicle I am dealing with.

    The fans will have a minimum of 1 earth and 1 live cable...

    All fine, Jakes.

    But I would not suggest running this directly from a switch.

    The circuit diagram I posted earlier is the only way I would consider installing a manual fan override.

  17. Re: The official Breakfast at Moegatle Trip (Part of the Gauteng breakfast schedule)

    It might work with Gert. If Willem goes to Klein Pella, he can probably do Moegatle too. I think Moegatle is only about 200km further than Klein Pella for him... ;D;D
