    Bob, he certainly gets up to loads, I loved the castings he did for the 6 pot, very few people would do that these days.

    Just hoping the parcel shelf panel is on the cards soon or I will end uop making one myself by end of year

      Update on spot fog light brackets .

      Just knocked up another batch of brackets (first batch all sold) , away at powder coaters at the moment , suddenly realised that brackets could be up ended and it is possible to fit lights under bumper as well as above .

      DON'T PANIC , l'm not intending using them like that , it was just a trial to make sure that brackets would work both ways , l think they do..
      Available to purchase shortly
      Looking into other Imp bling bits at the moment.

                          I guess those are asher jets, never thought about the amount of scrap and never knew the material was so expensive

                          Meanwhile the rest are not stressed in the least

                            No that's aluminium for brake fluid cap, fuel filer cap and oil filler caps , yes if you think about it , all the material that is removed from a billet of steel \ aluminium to get it to the finished shape , all you are doing is throwing about 50% away . So it's scrap
                            Someone once said to me when l was a mere lad of 18, just out of training school and on lathe section on shop floor "you produce alot of scrap" , not meaning it nastily just pointing out how much scrap is in tray of machine ,of course l took it the WRONG way and bit back at him ,then he explained and l apologised.

                            Good old Bob Lloyd , he also said l think you must have been picked on all your life (PICT ON)

                            Trying to get stock of my parts on shelf , just in case l ditch work in a couple of years
