    Have come into a bit of a problem I have only managed to snap 5/6 bolts on the top mounts.. IMG-20180422-WA0024.jpeg IMG-20180422-WA0027.jpeg

    IMG-20180422-WA0039.jpeg
    I managed to get the bolts drilled out and tapped IMG-20180422-WA0045.jpeg

    Made a nice little modification that @trackspec197 advised.. IMG-20180422-WA0029.jpeg

    I have finished the bolts but have realised I need new barings..

    IMG-20180426-WA0000.jpeg Right as I've got a strut brace waiting to go on I decided to sort out my plastics and one of the things with a strut brace you loose the covers for the shocks so I have made some from a old chair back which look brill I'll get a pic fitted when it's all bolted up properly..
