OK, I messed around trying to get the rear drums off and after speaking to Spence I found out I was wasting my time, unless you have a breaker bar and 6ft of scaffolding tube you are goin nowhere Suspect So thanks to Spence the rear drums are off, I slotted the new ones on and they fit a treat, I made sure the wheels fitted the new drums, spot on, it was only after I tried to bolt the wheels on I found out the wheel bolts are different sizes No

I hope it stops my chaffing as well, especially as the cost me 150 notes Rolling Eyes I should be sorting it tomorrow, I have had to build a shed for the wife to put her bikes in, it said in the instructions will take two people 2-3 hours to build.... So far it has taken two people 10 hours and I still havent got anydoors on it No

Bloody instructions are 35 pages long, I don't want to be doing that again in a hurry Exclamation

Your building the shed all wrong...The right way (and thats the man's way) is to throw the instructions away....do that and it will be built in no time lol!

Good call Spence, I shall try that next time, it took me a total of 14 hours to build No

The drums are now on the car, the wheel bolts are cut down to size so all I need now is two new split pins and to borrow a torque wrench that goes upto 217 ft/lbs Exclamation

Has anyone got one I can borrow Question

Oh, and Spence, I have the money waiting on the side for the seats as soon as you are ready mate afro
