Also, if anyone needs axle stands, it's worth noting that there should still be time to grab a pair of their 3 tonne ratchet stands for £14:

That`s a shame many, if you had put a request out I could have saved you £50.

I still have 1 or 2 left, OK not new but flat and perfectly serviceable.

picked up two SS1 upgraded WIshbones from Chesterfield in the SS1- (top down) , and saw the owners man cave - of interest was the ongoing SE6a to be mated to the BOB V6 project and a SS1 with k series 1.8 VVC :shock:

Close. I spoke to the designer - apparently Caterham wouldn't give Reliant production rights so they had to buy K series to type 9 bellhousings. I sold my spare for £150 with the starter motor spacer plate.
