Just thought I would pop my two penneth in, isn't it better to mount CV boots 90 degrees round so that the bolted joints are at 3 or 9 o'clock??

(Or should I just wind my neck in???)

TAXI!!!!!

Have you got a oil temp gauge fitted?? If not might be an idea to fit one if you are running chrome tinware.
Does look nice though!!!
