    Re: Okavango delta and your vehicle

    Back in the day (2006-2010), we did preventative maintenance, pre and post servicing, no matter the type of trip. It could be a day trip to Hennops, or a two week overlanding trip. Things like...

    Re: Independent trailer suspension DIY question

    Wow, thanks for that info. I did realise where the roll centre is, and that it extends under the ground behind the wheels. Makes so much sense why a trailer can be so unstable. Also makes sense why...

    Re: My solar geyser setup.

    Sounds like your thermosyphon goes into reverse as soon as the panel drops to lower temp than the geyser. Thats why your temp is lower on top than bottom. Do you have a non return valve that only...

    That would be Malcolm in his Terrano. Would be nice if he came and posted some pics of that setup he did way back when. I remember seeing it the first time in 2008 at Rust de Winter.

    LOL, I know, but 5mm is easier for me to weld with my skills and resources. And in my case, that bracket will probably be built with 10mm plate.
