S'hoko,maybe this roadblock was set up by interpol.are u sure they were just traffic cops alone?there was a time some few months ago when interpol officers from RSA were in zambia checking on "hot" cars.I bet thats the time you saw them mainly stopping nice cars only.Normally traffic cops dont stop(check) nice cars,coz they know everything is "intact",the lights,wipers,misonko,triangles etc. the cops main target is usually minibuses and pirate taxi corollas.kindly observe them again,you will agree with me.

Good people

I am told some cops have what they call "kaimana" (refer to mulemena song). This assists in them knowing if there is something wrong with the vehicle. Once a vehicle comes up it signals...

I was just told by my uncle in the village so i throw it to Ba Mwisho in his official capacity as uncle to advise.

Dear Mr. Machiavelli's Cousin,

I will be hoping and praying that this message finds you in good health.

What would be especially super is if you can explain what "kaimana" means, for those of us who do not know the mulemena song you alluded to. If the exact details of the cops activities are not entirely clear to you, I will be more than happy to contact you village uncle myself. If you can just provide the whereabouts of his habitat.

Sincerely,

Sana Nyambe

Ba Guest na ba Mwisho

am not sure if Ding dong is the third member of your clique. Anyway, you guys talking about your Toyota pick-up trucks, and Japan direct orders,you sound quite loaded. You remind me of Mike Tyson's chosen nickname. The baddest man on the planet.

anyway fellas, onward and upward!

Hi Guys,

Sorry to the brother hows car was messed up. I can imagine how you feel, try Autostyle motors in Libala next time - between Potter house and Winners Chapel churches. There is a decent oven and the works are of acceptable standards.

Bubbling is usually solvent release, leaving a 2k clear coat drying in the sun can do it. It really needs several days to harden slowly unless baked in an oven.

Peeling could be paint reaction due to improper preparation i.e. failure to go down to bare metal or not using a barrier coat.

Respraying a car with quality materials and getting a good finish, assuming the body is straight and ripple free to start with, is time consuming. There is no such thing as a cheap respray, even if you do it yourself. Also be warned, some of the chemicals are extremely toxic before setting and can be lethal !!!
