Rust detector

Do you get a device to detect rust other than the magnet method?I was told many years ago that a guy was seen at an auction using a gadget with two leds to detect rust.If this is true where can you buy it or can you make it yourself?It will make it easier if you don't have to lift carpets and crawl ...

Re: Duallie 1ton pick-up payload?

I was wondering about the same thing for F100/F250 (Google come up with 500kg).Doesn't sound right if you can also load it on a small Jap bakkie. 8)

Re: Its official out with the new and in with the old

It must be difficult with all these options available.Valiant/Chrysler is my favourites.For something more compact I like Ford 17M / Granada Mk1.Once had a '76 Audi 100,which was a very good car,but I don't think it is classical. 8)

Re: F100/250 Petrol vs diesel

Re: F100/250 Petrol vs diesel

I like the 70's/80's (4x2) shapes.It will mostly be used for camping or fishing trips.I would have opted for a Ranchero,but it is not suitable for rough conditions.Will it be difficult to install a Jap set up in this bakkies?Have a relative who installed a 6 speed Cabstar gearbox in a Nissan Safari ...
