  1. Thanks for your reply. You have helped make my mind up. I 100% agree with you that the sport wings look better than the standard cycle wings. I will place the order with GBS tomorrow. I know they have pillar box red in stock. Regards, Alan (Jacko)
  2. Hi lads, Has anyone fitted the GBS front sports type wings? Does anyone have a photo to what they look like fitted? I'm torn between standard cycle and sports type. Regards, Jacko

    Which Amp Gauge

    Hi all. Just about to buy and install an amp gauge which is best 30- 30+ or 60-60+ amps on gauge for my 2.0 pinto with alternator. Jacko.
  13. Also i forgot to add a drainage hole is req,d to bottom of each well.
  14. Hi. Alan Have just replaced front and back suspension on my 2b+ with gaz units from dampertec spoke with dave he advised rear coil overs for standard road use and average wieght driver 16inch open 300lb springs.I brought mounting shoes that sit in swinging arm wells from kit spares only a few pounds and holes were same as bush insert in damper.but dave does bush liners if you want make your own and reduce bolt dia size. Things i found when fitting mine 1. when i temp fitted damper with out spring attached in bottom of roll tube and let them hang natural in well the o/s one was off centre by 25mm due to frame build /welding .i overcome by making large round plate washer and welding in bttm wells for good seating. 2.Make sure you fit shoe in well to same angle as swinging pivot bolts A MUST also top mount bolt in roll over tube. 3.Don't over tighten bolts through coilovers and shoes just pinch up to allow movment swinging arm axis. 4.use bolts with long shanks so threads don't reck bush linings. 5.when fitting botom shoe in well fit bolts to coilover first really tight for space.Unless you make your own with extended ears. I have photos of complete build and set to mine if any help let me know i'll post them .
