    Re: Np300 4x4

    Appart from Isuzu none of the new bakkies seem to be able to carry a load. On the new Hiluxes we are now limited for safety reasons to 350 kg load after we have had some problems.

    Re: Pvc repair

    I have patched my PVC inflatables, it is possible, but I went to a place that makes tarps for trucks and bought a tin of glue from them. They mostly do the heatweld thing but occasionally use glue.
