Please be so kind as to take the time to help me to expand this already huge collection by providing links where I could download even more photos.

Kind regards,
Hi Henni

Bly om te sien dat jy weer aan die gang is!!! Jy bogenoemde "post" het my laat wonder of jy nie so n lys kan opstel met al die Kr's in SA nie en met waar hulle hul tans bevind en in wat se toestans nie!!!

Groete

Andre

Hi Andre,

Ek sou nie weet waar om te begin nie. Ek soek die KRs op Google ek kan nie meer opspoor as wat ek tans het nie. Dis dan nou KRs van regoor die hele wereld. Ek dink daardie fotos op AVCOM is die begin van dit wat jy in gedagte het.

Hoe gaan dit met jou projek - omdat ek nie meer op AVCOM is nie, weet ek nie van jou vordering nie.

Groete en dankie vir die inloer,

Henni

Here's a list of almost 50 KR's registered in SA. How complete it is, is anyone's guess. I don't see ZU-CGR on the list for starters.

The link does not want to load fully. Open link and type KR in the search, then select the KR list on the left.

Hi Jean,

Ons trek binne die volgende twee weke van Durban na Ashley in Pinetown. Die huis het o.a. 'n lekker dubbel garage en ek het dit spesiaal geneem sodat ek aan haar kan werk. Tans staan een derde van die KR2 onder 'n stoep, twee derdes buite. Sy is veilig toe met 'n seil om haar gedraai. Die wind is huidiglik heeltemal mal hier in Durban. Ek kan nie waag om die seil af te haal nie. Laat nog alleen om die twee gazibos op te slaan wat ek spesiaal vir haar gekoop het. Geen toue met penne sal hul in hierdie weer op die aarde hou nie.

Ek skat direk na die naweek van die 15e sal haar konstruksie in alle erens begin. Ek gaan begin om die pre-molded gedeeltes vas te glasvesel en volgende met die sitplekke. Daarna sal ek die enjin begin monteer. Ek het nou bietje meer spasie om aan haar te werk en as die weer opsteek is sy veilig onder dak.

Dus sal daar weer binnekort gereeld fotos hier opgelaai word. Man, is ek tevrede met my enjin. Het vandag die log inskrywings gekry en daardie enjin het nog skaars gewerk. Ek kon nie vir beter gevra het nie. Dit lyk nie verniet so nuut nie. Dit was 'n goeie koop gewees. Nie lus om met ou goed te sukkel nie.

Nou ja, dis hoe dinge nou staan. Lekker om van jou te hoor.

Groete,

Henni

vhpy Nice plek daai waarheen julle gaan trek (^^) (^^) Ja Hans het seker al spyt gekry dat hy die enjin verkoop het, want hy het by my n Quicksilver sonder n enjin oorgeneem en gese hy sal n 582 daarvoor moet soek.
Groete

Hi Jean,

Sal binnekort begin fotos pos. Nog niks drasties gedoen nie en daarom nog geen fotos nie. Besig om al die houtwerk te "varnish". Ek beoog om die binne kant panele te hou soos is, maar dan moet die hout goed vertoon.

Darem nie niks gedoen nie - brieke en kabels te koop gekry, al moet ek dit nog gaan haal. Ook detail van verskeie APs in Kzn gekry en sodra alles netjies lyk, sal ek reel vir n inspeksie want ek wil begin toemaak.

Oja, ook besig om te reel vir instrumente. Maar hier sal finansies die vordering bepaal.

Een ding kom ek agter: Dit is baie duurder om 'n KR2 te bou as om 'n gebruikte een te koop. Was nou onlangs 'n baie netjiese groen KR2 te koop, lugvaardig en al, vir slegs R80 000. Wens ek kon eerder daardie een bekostig...

Nou ja - groete dan,
Henni
