Wet And Wild. looks like you all had fun.

Respect to the N[]va towing , but more to the poor bugger being towed.

thanks for the pics and the video's

ping milddog.

Flush that engine out asap. Spoke to my mechanic now, he tells me that engine will produce rust within a couple of days and then  you will have a headache.

midas sells actyvo oil at R50/liter.

good luck!!!
