    Did a 23 hour journey up to my mom's farm in Natal from Cape Town the night before the lockdown. Was not keen to be stuck in a an apartment on the 7th floor with a 21 month old baby boy. Looks like we may be here for a while

    Ran into a hardware store the morning before we left and managed to get 3 tins of Hammerite in the same colour. Better make it work. Took the bull bar, side steps and tow bar off Suzie (2004 KB 300 Isuzu) and slowly redoing them while busy with a host of other projects and baby sitting Stefan. He likes to assist.

    We did new kitchen lights today.

    Sort of a simple farmhouse style thing, just 7 bulbs hanging from black wires wrapped around the "balke"........looks quite nice, something different I think.

    Into the lighting thing this past week.......I lightened up our little bartjie in the house also, put a bulb behind that bok kop (made from paper), and just installed a single "naked"bulb , hanging from a swart electical wire.
    Compliments the 'feel" of the old wardrobe (where I keep the poison) and the old kitchen counter that now serves as a bar counter I think.

    Red face Re: Your Lockdown Projects

    I am busy converting my landy to a hybrid
    The PTO attachment is made from a modified center diff so that I can engage and disengage the electric motor.
    The plan is to use the electric motor in low range in town.
    I will charge the batteries with solar power and drive around for free if all goes well .
    It will also be able to charge the bateries via the same motor wile driving with the diesel engine, but it will have a influence on the fuel economy, but I am very curious by how much.
    The electric motor have a max torque of 136 N.m on 800 rpm

    Hope it work. I will keep you posted.

    Lock down as given me a decent amount of time to get to what I wanted to do to my Defender 90:

    VHF installed in centre console
    Bash Plate install
    Built brackets for high lift to fit to roof rack
    Built brackets for awning to fit to roof rack
    Installed 6x9's in the rear and flush installed the tweeters in front (enclosure still needs to be wrapped in interior carpet
    Removed the front "bosbreker"
    Installed Defender Puma jump seats (work in progress to get it as strong and neat as I like)

    After lock down:
    Built drawer system for my 90 that incorporated the seats and has space for my sub woofer.
    Dual battery system with monitor and connections

    I spent the past two weeks digging a trench, together with my son (he did about 80%), for water from the borehole to the first 5000 liter tank at the veggie garden. The total length is 70m and as you will see in the photos not a lot of rocks. It will also supply water to the kraal for the cattle (the few that I have) and for irrigation for the garden a bit later.
