    Took my friend from JHB to Langebaan




    Decided to take the side steps off for some side clearance and aesthetics. Would like to get some subtle sliders made up



    Went to Jonkershoek for the 10km loop and a hike to the waterfall with the familly.




    Next up was some new grip. Decided to go with the Hankook Dynapros..suited the pocket and continuously found good reviews. Really loving them so far.

    Went to find the snow this morning, seemed like every other 4x4 owner had the same idea made our way to Matroosberg but there were far too many cars so decide not to do the track up. Ended up on the side of the road with many others. Still was a fun day with the family.

    So since we started the journey with The Beesh, we have put on 4000km. Managed to catch a photo of the 260000km on our way back from Knysna this weekend. Just feel so proud of the old boy as he still drives like a young buck. Im sure the previous owners enjoyed it as much as we are.

    We went up to Matroosberg this weekend with family and friends for my wifes birthday. What a beautiful place!! We arrived on the friday and stayed in the Lakeside cabins, excellent well priced accommodation.



    On the Saturday morning we tackled the mountain. I had researched quite a bit beforehand as my 4x4 experience is a little outdated and I didnt want to tackle this grade 3 blindly. My boet had joined me in his Disco 3 so it was nice to have backup. It had been raining the whole of friday and apparently the route can be grade 4 when muddy so i was pleased when the sun was shining in the morning to help dry it up. Sadly we never got snow.


    On route



    Climbing



    The lookout





    A little descent..



    Scenery and more climbing





    Finally the false summit...Groothoekkloof.
    Insanely beautiful...






    The descent





    And the Beesh looking proud



    Was so impressed with how well the Paj performed. Had to choose specific lines due to the stock clearance but other than that there were no issues. Hankooks grabbed well at 25% deflation with no signs of sidewall damage. Due to the rain, snow and high traffic the pass has had since the last snowfall, I personally think its become a low grade 4 with all the erosion and exposed rocks. What a geat experience and another one off the bucket list.

    I read further down and thought you said there was snow on the mountain as in NOW and very 4x4 enthusiast was there NOW and my 4 year old inner child came out shouting I ALSO WANT TO BE THERE NOW and he would not understand that I have to be at work today. Eish, Inner kids!
    Sometimes I only read the words I want to see.
    Nice pictures btw - brings back good memories.

    So you may have noticed in the previous post that my mirrors and door handles were black. I decided to spray them with matt black with Plasti Dip as im not a fan of the bling bling chrome.


    First cleaned the surface and masked up around.



    50% coverage on first coat



    After another coat



    And then a few more coats untill i thought it was sufficient. The final finish



    Came out pretty cool and if I get tired of the look I can just peel it off.

    Looks pretty cool. Who sells PlastiDip? I have seen Builders selling Rust-Oleum. Which one is better?

    You got me there. This is actually Rust-Oleums product, but I would rather recommend Plasti Dip as it peels off easier. I tried Rust-Oleums as it was convenient to get and so far it seems to be holding on well but when I was peeling off other sections it was tricky.

    I think you can order from this store. http://www.awarehousefull.co.za/inde...ory&path=59_66 I plan on doing my wheels soon and will be using Plasti Dip

    Any updates? I'm keen to see how the wheels came out after being sprayed with the Plasti Dip, if you have done it?
