TSM - Bringing it back.... slowly

Hi, i have used POR15 on a few projects and i am personally very happy with the results. its relatively easy to apply and you will be amazed how far a small tin will go. its evil stuff if you get it on your hands! be warned. it really takes some getting off... so gloves are a must and leave your sle...

SE5a YTY V8 project

Thanks as always guys, i am sure there was a nasty looking compensator valve thingy on it when i stripped it down... though it was a while ago now.. :shock: Chris, that is a good idea about making it dual circuit. so are the SS1 complete MC/Servo units readily available? i know i could check myself ...
