Craig, I think you mean Richard Burton! 'eeees the arty one who's currently persuing an interest in Porsches, but will some day return to the Scimitar world I'm sure!

Speaking of Rawl bolts, I've a small crate full of the buggers that came from a factory clearance, can pop some in the post for the price of postage and a small tipple.

I would defintely be looking to bolt it to something solid, mines attached to a heavy pallet, but even then I have to chuck a few wheels on the back edge to weigh it down if tackling stubborn beads.

They're used, just scrubbed. I found them on eBay poorly described. Uber cheap :D

For what I paid, I'll be happy if they're only any good for a test day or two. But I think they'll be handy for next season.

I've got rears in K21 (two are 1 event old, + these) & K60 (2mm of tread), Fronts K60 (3mm tread) and these eBay jobbies in K21 that have about 4.5 mm.

I was trying to find some new 215/50/13 K21, but all the usual suppliers didn't have any stock. I'll get some next year. I think I've got enough to be going on with :lol:

Got one of those Mark, stick a vacuum cleaner on the filter (obviously a spare not the wifey's one :w ) or you'll not be able to see in about two seconds after you start to use it, oh and a really good water trap as well.

Top ball joints to go with the TRE's that came the other day. Ordered trunnion kits and ARB poly bushes from QBR today so they should be here tomorrow. Also waiting for POR15 from Frost. Cleaning and re-bushing of front starts this weekend.
