    I personally would want a bit more travel, as Gary has said, you ain't at full weight yet and if it comes down hard even though they are 90/10's it could feel very solid when it hits.

    Carry on as normal, you're going great guns Mike!
    cheers.......... ive sussed a way of dropping the bottem if need be, will keep an eye on it.

    I really like the v crossmember I like the way it sits under the pulley. I also liked in its original position at the front. I guess as the only gasser I have ever seen is Steves it helps I have no preconception of what it should look like.

    ^^^ cheers for the comments lads.
    .
    ive been snowed under with work and life so haven't done alot.
    .
    made a tube in a tube slide in mount thingy for the front end.
    .





    .
    short of cash so trying to use whats laying around, found a steering UJ outside on the scrap pile that aint posh or racey but it will do,
    .




    .
    i was getting fed up with the body being in the way, gave mike couch a call and he gave me a hand to lift it off outside.
    .




    .
    i dragged a camera shy Lou into the shed to measure up for the column,
    .



    .
    while mike was here he helped me ( ie he did it ) add a load more tubes in the cage, think they are all in now.
    .



    .
    thats it..........tis getting there !
