    Groot Melkboom is the Namaqua Eco Route. Not the Namaqua National Park.

    I've done pretty much most of Southern Namibia, so my focus has actually been further North. My parents have not really seen much of the South, and asked me to put a trip together for them while my...

    Exactly one of the reasons for my post, Oom Francois. All vehicles have their Achiles heel. One needs to know what it is. ;D;D

    Re: Aluminium radiator end tanks

    Patrols have a plastic expansion tank in the radiator. Older model Patrols start developing leaks as the metal "crimps" surrounding these tanks start failing.

    We normally tend to replace these...

    I think it may be that there are many on the market, but not that many advertised.

    Ryno,

    Right - I have a bit of time.

    I've had both a 4.5 and a 4.8. Both GRX-spec. I still have the 4.5 - it is my daily drive. The ex-wife wrote off my 4.8. She drives a 3L Prado now. I hate...
