Hi Josh,
In your August 25th picture there are some circular clamps, stainless? I'd like some quality ones 5/8" (15mm), please let me know where they came from, thanks.

They were off eBay. The manufacturer is Mikalor, which is well known or quality. I'm not sure if they do 15mm ones though

They are very shiny......

Whilst dismantling the rear of the SS1 I realised that the largest metric spanner I owned was 19mm, so when these came up on a Halfords email I couldn't resist. Without sounding a bit Spinal Tap, they go all the way up to 32mm.

sounds like a fair reason to me , is that you told the better half :wink:

ref Steve Bryant's comment about growing into things, This is acceptable when buying clothes for children, not sure if it should be applied to the other half :shock: (ducks as large object comes across room)

Hi Josh,
As you suspected Mikalor don't go down to 15mm, thanks for the ref, though.
I'll keep looking.
Nice turbo!

Hi Phil,
Yes, they could be just what I need, and cheaper than ACE parts (which are almost identical)
thanks.

those dolly things look OK , shame I'm limited in amount of space around the car, I usually just use a trolley jack under rear/front of SS1 cross member but can to so on 480. as 480 is off road it might be handy for it, is there a link for them ?
