    Kry rubber suckers en sit die heater dan vas tussen die DSB en water oppervlak.

    Hey Shaun.

    Looking good china!! Just a question and I have seen it on more than one occasion. Whats up with the dual colored DSB?????? Is there a reason for this like maybe different size grains or is it purely for the look of things?
