KJX935G The Re-Birth ! the re-fit.........

Rain gutters look good, were they in a good condition anyway or did you re-work them (if so where/how?)
I've just got my 5a back on the road after 8 years off and love driving it when I can, you'll get a lot of attention in that she looks great.

Looks great, congratulations.
What is the plan (apart from Paint), are you keeping it stock or going for some subtle mods?

ABS System for a 5A???

I have invested in new tyres (I am planning on changing to some wider wheels and sticky rubber over the...

ABS System for a 5A???

Hey guys due to a recent scare involving an idiot (not me :D ) and a rather big lock up I have decided to start investigating the possibility of installing ABS to my 5A. Has anyone done this or looked at option previously? Need a suitable donor vehicle with similar overall weight, front/rear weight ...
