Daai koffie langs die strand lyk altyd so lekker.   :thumleft:  :thumleft: 
Kon daai ou aan jou linkerkant nie nader gestop het nie?   :eek7:   :biggrin:

Dink maar daaraan om later daai agterwiel te verander na 'n kar wiel, dit help baie op grondpaaie en vir daai sinkplaat.  Was die naweek na Barries se roudiens in Kirkwood.  Terug huistoe deur Addo park se pad gery.  Daai stuk is nou moer sinkplaat, vernaam teen daai opdraande uit.  Karretjie het hom heel gemaklik gevat, natuurlik met sagter bande ook.     :thumleft:

Was net kort ent en het nie wiele afgeblaas nie. Bliksem maar hy't hom gestamp. Probleem is ook daar is klomp joints op my kaar wat hom erg laat raas. Gaan moet kyk daarna

Ek weet jy wil nie hoor nie, maar ek dink jy behoort weer na die rubbers te kyk.
Dit maak dat die tub en die frame nie as 'n eenheid vibreer op sinkplaat pad nie.
Ongelooflik hoe die goed werk.

As my good planning always works out, the break down happens near a farmhouse. While I set about getting the belcrank off Lyn goes to check if they have the tools I need.

They do and as Briv would put it, after using the correct size hammer and 'repurposing' some scrap metal, we are sorted. Hour later and we good to go.


Jip ek sien daai moer en cap screw  :peepwall: :ricky: bly julle het onthou van " repurposing". Lekker om saam met julle te kuier by Oasis  :3some: :thumleft:

Dit is waarom alles gaan.

Dit lyk of jou verwagting vanaf al jou beplanning van die eerste gedagte aan syspan bou tot nou na wense gedraai het.

Hoe was petrol verbruik met die syspan?
