Its coming along nicely Hef. Interesting to see a slightly different way of doing this with the dampers and springs separate. Is that how the setup was on the R36?

I’ve not seen a rear spring set up like that before Hef (though I’m no expert) you learn something everyday!

Looking really good mate, well done

This is great work Hef, it will be great to see it eventually

All fitted perfectly so we can finish the tank tomorrow with a bit of luck and fit Saturday.

Inner arch had a coat of etch tonight too ...Image
