    Hey people

    Our friends in the USA are selling mod kits to change your impellor into a mesh wheel, this is what the kit consists of...

    1. enough enkamat pf4a for 3 layers of mesh.
    2. a piece of gutter guard for a flat plate bottom or top.
    3. 6 mini zip ties, go ahead screw one up, there's extra.
    4. approx. 2' of fishing line in case you wish to use instead of mini zip ties.
    5. instructions with pictures.

    They selling them for only $10 each, that roughly R70-R75

    I have been chatting to them via PM on the zeovit.com board and they say it will only cost $5 to ship about 20 - 30 of these kits to us.

    I am ordering 3 for myself, anybody want to jump on and order with me? although you won't be saving much with regards to postage as it's only $5 (R35), if you do want to order with me then I will post them to you via normal mail which will probably cost less about R5 - R10

    I have just asked them if they have any photo's of the kits, waiting on a response.

    Here's the link to the thread, if you wanna PM them yourself, send a PM to barrierreefcf as he has already worked out shipping costs to SA :D

    They seem to be generic kits that you can customize any impellor with.

    Hill, let's wait for the pics (yes I know, reefclips ;)) and give it a few days to see who wants. I think we will wait until after payday so let's make the final date Monday 4th June?

    I would guess these materials could be bought for less than 30 bucks locally.

    I will post pics of the mod I did to the weipro on my frag tank.

    These kits are taylor made for lazy people:whistling:

    Everyone could club together and to a group buy locally - immediate availability and you are supporting the SA economy.
