Sambas in South Africa are good for only 2 things: showing off and sunburn.

Hi gents,..I like this new toy,.. The Ipad? Still have finger troubles.
However,.. The original colour was a mix between "akkies" and khaki,..... Think it is called mango green or close to that,...can't stand it,.....still visible in the engine compartment. Sometime between the previous owners it was painted this " aero silver(green) with pearl white top.
I am sticking to these colours,... Sort of grown on me,......and a little bit lighter on the budget.

Nice Ghia Haans,

Love the green / silver colour, not seen before, but it fits the car perfect.

Would also keep it if mine.

All, sort of an update.

Haans now home,...... but other " things" are getting in the way ,... like painting rooms,.... like fixing brakes onGoose's new '70 single cab,....and some issues on the goosemobile.
But,....have since al this started on Haans again,....goose is coming to the party when work allows it...I'm not getting any younger either !!!
Have completed fitting the dashpad,.....required quite a bit of " fettling" to fit to our liking.
Attached some pics
If all goes according to plan,, I will start preparing the interior for sound dampening
Regards Hans
