Howdy,

My exhaust was looking a bit dull, so I decided to do some maintenance..bought a can of Rust-Oleum High Heat, a wire brush and some masking tape.

Check out this link for info on Rust-Oleum: http://www.rustoleum.com/product-catalo ... /high-heat

Closed up everything with a news paper that could get spray on beside the parts I wanted to spray...

Evenly sprayed the Rust-Oleum on the exhaust and my radiator...check it out ##

In total it cost me R150 and some elbow grease ##

(^^)

Looks good. If I remember, I will contact you in about six months to see how it stands up. I really like the look of it.

Some pics of our flip to Mongena ##

Jaco and I decided to join the Kroon gang for a flip to Mongena Lodge. http://www.mongena.co.za/

Jaco flew from Klip and met me overhead Crosswinds where we then flew to Kroon.Landed at Kroon so Jaco could have a leg stretch as it was a distance from Klip in the South to Kroon.

We then took off and routed to the Tswaing Crater http://www.hartrao.ac.za/other/tswaing/tswaing.html

After having a good look of the Crater as it was Jaco's first time seeing it, we routed to Mongena Lodge ##

Arriving at the lodge we had to buzz the runway to scare the animals off the runway...what an experience seeing a wild hog on final running like mad and ducking in the bush ## :lol:

After Mongena we routed back to Kroon and had a coke with the Kroon gang before heading home ##

Here are a couple of pics from the trip...
