    Yes, you will need them at the point of entry and exit.

    The same will apply on the way back and these tests will need to be no older than 72 hours.

    Also make sure the borders you will be using...

    Same hubs are used on 90-94 Nissan Patrol. I bought mine from Rugged Ridge via Amazon.

  14. Re: What are the rules for travel to Eswatini? Paging Karol?

    Thanks for the tip about the meat permit.

    I went to Maguga. Next time I want to go to Sand River but fear that might take a while due to what lockdown did to our business.

    Re: 12V Impact wrenches for wheelnuts

    If you have problems undoing wheel nuts with a power bar/ torque wrench, how are you going to handle the weight of the actual wheel and tyre combination?

    By all means, new tools are cool and nice...

    A little feedback on my experience.

    Re: 12V Impact wrenches for wheelnuts

    Doesn't anyone think this is serious overkill for LC wheel nuts? Power bars with pipe extensions? What is the torque spec? Like 120NM? This is so easy to loosen with a normal power bar or 1/2" drive...

  21. Re: Starting old 2 stroke motors. Advice Required please

    Changing the gearbox oil is easy but can be messy. You need a large oil drain pan because the oil will run down the skeg and drip in three of four different places at the same time. It is also...
  22. Re: Starting old 2 stroke motors. Advice Required please

    A lot of it has to do with how you store the motors after use. 10 - 15 minutes spent running fresh water through the engine to flush out salt deposits/ muddy dam water after each trip, running the...

  24. Re: Mahindra Pikup S10 Karoo 4x4 DC @ De Wildt

    As I understand it, it has more to do with the monarch wanting a bigger slice of the pie from the breweries and less to do with actually curbing a virus.
