2nd'ed on the Blue Band.

CDS is great, but heavy as hell.

If your looking at gas pipe the Corus stuff seems to bend better IMO.

Re: sorry me again

Best advice i can give is not to wear flip-flops with socks :))

Then to get shot of the "A" bar cos it's just not strong enough for a winch installation.
Just not at all fit for purpose..

Sorry chap :((

Re: FAO: 1nkling - Lanes in Cornwall?

Think I may be able to help out. Yes, there are some good ones and some mediocre ones. Best man to ask is Fran on the Granite Bashers. He's always up for lanes. I can get you in contact if you like. Alternatively, Gnarley Laners are a good bunch. http://z6.invisionfree.com/Gnarly_Laners/" onclick="w...

Re: sj shock extensions

Nah, even the gas shocks seem to have some oil in them and don't happen upside down.

Just had a work out.

Dorset auto spares and GSF Vit rear shocks £11.90 each
Series rover shock from Paddock £8.33 each

Works out just a bit more than the made up extenders on eBlag :-\

Re: sj shock extensions

Just apply the same ruling to your bump stops.

Extend by 2" or your shocks will be toast!
