    It is not light on fuel, or oil.

    But, drive a brand new Toyota 2.4 GD6 auto 3000km recently, only dis 100~110 with bushlapa in the back. Best consumption ever was 8.2km/l. In 4H, in Lesotho getting 6. Also uses 2 pints of oil on the trip. 800k for the complete vehicle and kit, my bus costs the same as the Interest of this vehicle paid over a few years., the gesrbox on the Toyota was also massively disappointing, no anticipation at all, does not seem to learn.

    At the end of the day we must all put fuel in, cannot expect a 30 year old permanent 4wd brick to sip fuel.

    It can howeve take a lot of people and their stuff.

    I had 4 Kombis, one of which was a Syncro. A special one off built long after VW stopped making them. Fitted new with Golf high block motor, vacuum actuated diff locks, double long range tanks and I fitted a decoupler. This thing took us all over Southern Africa and the family loved it. Never had any problems with it and sold it with 180 000km on the clock. The next owner took it all over Africa. It's still running around in Limpopo.

    The T3 Syncro had its shortcomings, but as a family 4x4 it had no competition and under certain circumstances was actually extremely capable off road.

    I mentioned earlier that Swambo and I are working on a project. Well here it is: www.thetastychilli.com

    It's only got 3 recipes right now, so it's a work in progress, but plenty more to come, especially bush cooking. However, she is only going to focus on home cooking for now seeing as none of us can go anywhere at the moment.

    If you see anything majorly wrong with the layout it would be much appreciated to let me know right here.

    Have a look at reef-pi its freeware been running it on my reef tank for over a year now. The beauty of it is that you can control practically anything utilising the software...

    That's brilliantly simple! Takes up quite a bit of space, though.

    But where do the get those plastic reservoirs? I've never seen them here.

    Would you mind posting those links in the DIY Ventilator thread, please? Else I could do it.

    Been a bit busy with my real work (for which I am extremely grateful). Had a few minutes here and there. Could not get to my big project.

    Note, not the prettiest work I've done, but all made from recycled wood and hinges. Will still MacGyver a knob and lock for it. Some cleaning up work still to do, since this is a used piece of wood. My year old daughter helped with the sanding and filling of holes, so we tried something new. I melted some of her old "moer toe" crayons into some of the gaps. Perhaps not correct for pure woodworking, but she loves it so I'm happy. Will seal the wood in the morning so will see how the crayons react to it

    Shallow cupboard behind the garage door and gate. Not much, but will store my drill bits, spray paint cans, glue and other items. Excuse the wires, had to loosen them to install. Will tidy them up over the weekend.

    Then for the first time in my life I attempted to make some pannekoek. Also a success.

    My lockdown projek:

    So update op die "stripping" proses:

    Binnekant, is soos voorheen genoem, omtrent kaal en het die laaste paar dae, so tussen video conferences en so aan, die enjin begin uithaal en vandag die enjin uiteindelik uitgekry.
