Never mind what came in the post - look see what I picked up for £1 on the show ground during NE Scimitar day yesterday - there were two for sale on reflection I should have bought the other one as well. Been looking for a tool to remove the 1800Ti oil filter for ages as "normal" strap wrenches are too big for the gaps - this one should be ideal.

Not in the post but collected today from the powdercoater who did my Middlebridge wheels (and sets for other people) - The only reason they were off the car was my fault in turning too early and clobbering a gate post and damaging the front panel of the mounting panel for the bumper. The g/f nicely repaired (not by me!) so now to rebuild both ends of the GTC.

Nope, only use Amazon if i absolutely have to, and not for car parts. McGill Motorsports are where they came from, superb motorpsort supplier 8)

Box was mine, chucked other stuff in afterwards

No Jim, Karl off eBay in Lincolnshire.
Decent finish, one or two mould blemishes but good thickness, no flex and very snug!
I can’t put any more weight on, but as it’s post Christmas and they fit now I should be ok come springtime 😁
