Yeah i had the ones on the Crewy redrilled machined flat but i'd rather get some proper drums this time, cos thinking about it the drum isn't as thick as it should be where it'll be drilled, so i'll just have to wait for them to turn up Crying or Very sad ..

Well got impatient and phoned Machine7 again and it's not good news the rear drums will not be in the country until sometime in the newyear Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad

So while at work i couldn't be arsed to do anything apart from think how to get the wheels on then CLICK i remembered i bought a set of wide 5 spacers for the Crewy and never used them cos the bolts where bug ones (12mm) the same as the adaptors i got from Harvey so cut the bolts down a little bit and the rims are on Cool Cool

But i don't think i like them No
They may grow on me and may look better when i paint the bus if not then they are gonna be up for sale Exclamation
