    Re: Best Roller shutter to install on a d/c

    Hi there
    I bought my SecuriLid Type 218 in 2019 for R16k. Bought the manual one. Less moving parts and its not so difficult or heavy to pull close. I think SecuriLid is the best on the market.

    Re: Tail light replacement

    I changed my mind about replacing my rear lights. The sales person could only give me a 6 months warranty. I could not justify spending R4k on a set and the 6 months down the line it packing up.
