Re: Wire Mesh Fluorescent Light Guard

Re: Wire Mesh Fluorescent Light Guard

Maybe not this one, but something similar. Just pull it apart and use the rack part. Stainless is also a plus, as those ones that you have posted will corrode quickly if used outside.

Re: Wire Mesh Fluorescent Light Guard

Safety items in Thailand? You have to be joking! A clear plastic (acrylic) tube cover is a better option. Don't know anything about the following, maybe only bulk buys? Or maybe only shipped from Japan. There is a phone number. https://th.misumi-ec.com/vona2/detail/223007628202/?HissuCode=EA944D-102

“This kind of shark is so cute as kitties or puppies and is not fierce. But it doesn’t mean that if they are cute, they don’t bite. It is like kitties and puppies that also bite but they don’t mean to hurt,” said Dr Thon Thamrongnawasawat, deputy dean of Kasersart University’s Faculty of Fisheries ...

Re: Which car would you feel safest in Thailand

I think the only SUVs based on s truck with the lousy suspension are the big ones like Fortuner and similar. I believe the Fortuner changed to a multi link rear suspension with the 2012 model. The earlier ones were just built on a Hilux frame, as was the Sportrider before it. But even with the new ...
