    Why would you stick "make a offer" on Fleabay and then say no to every good offer! :mad:

    £59.99 or make offer

    Offer one : £45..... Nope
    offer two : £55......nope

    Think you've made a mistake mounting them on the path side as you'll suck kids into them causing a misfire.

    Looks mean as ****, Can't wait to see it finished. :cool:

    Re-thinking the rear sub frame at the moment (i had what i wanted in my head) but this would not work.

    Stupid me did not think about wheel movement,tyre size etc

    So i've got to re-do it all again:rolleyes:

    All i need now is to find a pipe bender and some tubing


    I want this
