    Not sure what's going on with the firewall but it looks bad.

    I would suggest you remove it,strip it and try to repair it....

    Or replace it.

    Secondly that screw ontop of the fender top.

    Something doesn't look right there.

    That is a very, very nice knife!
    I have one very similar in shape and size, a working knife of cause, and between all the knifes it's always the go to knife when skinning and even cutting up meat.

    Very nice, well done!!

    Die 230 se sump is deurgeskuur gewees. Dit is opgeweld, en 230 is in kar in. Het vergeet om foto te neem.

    Het keuse gehad tussen 230 en 230e engine om in te sit, maar het teen 230e besluit (al is dit seker een van beste w123 engines), want beide die 250 en 230 is carb karre, en het nie die pype en hoe druk pompe en alles wat nodig is vir brandstof inspuiting.

    230 het n 200 se stromberg side draft carb op, wat die plunger bo op carb kort. Wonder waar ek dit gaan kan kry.

    Propshafts was nogal n issue.

    Die 230 is baie korter as die 250 engine, maar hulle gebruik selfde auto box.
    So die 230 en gearbox is sowat 200mm vorentoe geskuif in body.
    230 het dun propshaft, met 3 dele en 2 centre bearings.
    250 het obviously korter propshaft. Baie dikker. Net 2 dele en 1 centre bearing.

    Gedig ek kon net die 230 se hele propshaft op 250 body met 230 engine gebruik, maar 250 body het nie mounting punte vir 2de centre bearing nie.

    Gelukkig pas n 300d manual se voorste deel van prop op 250 se agterste deel, maar is presies regte lengte vir die 230 se engine. En ek het een op my scrap hoop.

    AWNING - Some thoughts

    Currently I am very happy with my Alucab 270 Shadow AWN. This suits my camping style (move every day) and I need something that I can pack up on my own. (Bad experience with 2 previous awnings). Only problem with my latest vehicle (L/C S/C with Bushlapa camper) the stove section is exposed to the rain.

    I have an industrial sewing machine and I do all my own sewing. I bought some canvas (from marine supplier Texwise) and am looking to add a piece that will cover the stove area. There is already velcro down the inside of the existing awning. I will then add a piece (attached by velcro - can change if this not strong enough) and then add an extra pole. So basically adding a triangle with a self standing pole. The one side I can attach to the roof rack (tie down), the other side will attach to the existing awning (velcro) and then a pole on the third corner.

    This can be attached only when needed and there is more than enough space for storage.

    Would a free standing pole work??
    Finally got rid of that annoying sound in the 4x4, opened the door and pushed him out

    Relax you're not, old vintage design been aroung as long as I can remember. Had one lying around for many years, old stuff was made with cotton webbing, did not like the battery acid. Replaced it with a section of fan belt and voila never got eaten after that.
