Marc

If that deal comes to pass, I'll collect and post it down for you... I owe Lord GT a favour as he did me a cracking deal a while back (Lord GT - that is no way any form of Manitou gag!)

Here you go Mr GT!

The last two shots illustrate the repair to the swim arm. This is a known failure area... Bren (on here) skilfully welded two "polos", one on each side to increase the amount of metal in this area. A new Pin was also machined and the whole setup is massively better than a stock FRS.

It's also a completely as per catalogue build... Bonus point if you can spot the mistake though!
