    I bought a different holder after the standard one bent. The holder is secured to the BL A-frame using Sikaflex.

    Spoke with a well known BL dealer today. His advice; remove (with force) and replace, so that is what I'll be doing.

    I am confused... Seems you are referring to the number plate light and not the license disc holder. Some replies address the license disc holder. I'll comment on both....

    I have not yet had water in the number plate light but replacing it while attempting to remove and fix it sounds like a viable option since it should not be expensive to replace.

    As for the license disc holder, mine is still behind the jockey bracket since day one. That way it is protected from direct hits by flying stones. I also use the contact used for covering school books to stick on both sides of the paper disc leaving a small edge all around thereby sealing the paper disc so that water and dust cannot get to it. If you are worried about loosing it, make a colour copy if the disc to fit on the van and keep the original in your glove box.

    Yes, only referring to the number plate light. Somehow water got into it. Actually quite cheap (R70 at 4x4 Direct).

    Old 78 is having a bearing service today, taken off the bokkies and then packed for 16 days in Namibia starting on Thursday.

    Despite a few negative, upsetting things happening this year on certain groups, I still love my caravan and it is the centerpiece of any trip.

    Fully agree, people will not change my perception of an almost perfect for my purposes camp caravan.

    Dankie tog ek het daai goed mis gelees...of dalk is dit op die groep waar ek afgeklim het....

    Ons het self gister begin pak vir Stormsrivier al ry ons eers volgende Donderdag.... Dis die 1ste keer wat ons die groot tek Storms toe doen met die FJ. Ek kon weens werk verpligtinge, nie laasjaar gaan nie. Ek het skielik gister besef hoe handig die ekstra spasie in die Hilux was... Ek was gewoond sleep met niks los in die Miskruier nie. Dit gaan die jaar bietjie anders lyk agter in die Miskruier....

    As iemand dalk oorweeg het om die standaard pro-white rims BL kleur te verf, so lyk dit. Het ook die hub-caps gekoop. Lyk vir my beter as die Burquip dust-cap.

    Joh...daai lyk goed. Ek het swartes gekoop laas jaar soos wat die nuwes mee uitkom want hulle is eintlik nogal goedkoop. Hulle lyk klaar weer sleg na 2 NAM trips so ek sal een of ander tyd weer 'n plan moet maak. Ek kan net dink hoe al daai chips gaan lyk na 2 weke langs die see...

    Ek het nooit gedink and dieselfde kleur as die wa nie... Ek like dit baie...

    Dankie Michael. Ek het hoeka chip merke gehad wat begin roes het. Ek het 'n liter verf laat meng so daar is oorgenoeg om op die wa ook hier en daar chip merke reg te maak. As jy 2k verf in 'n glas bottel stoor hou hy sommer lank vir 'n volgende patch sessie.

    Ek het 2 geroeste stelle centre caps in my garage. Ek het nou stainless steel opgesit. Ek sal sien na 2 weke langs die see hoe suiwer daai stainless steel is . Ek dink ek sal ook maar die spuit ding doen as hulle weer roes...

    Hi

    The Grub Screw is not holding, slides down every so often, also when folding up the tent you can get the poles to lay flat and not stick out.

    Just a thought.
