Cheers you...

She can't go any lower cos the steering arms are only about 10mm from hitting the chassis.. What a Face
So tubbing the arches isn't gonna get me any lower.. Evil or Very Mad Evil or Very Mad
But modding the chassis will let me go lower Wink Wink Twisted Evil Twisted Evil

Rich, did you per chance chase a modern car in or near Bridgwater on the way home from the unit today?

Cos while we were round Baz & Ali's house checking up on the jacket progress .... their son came home, saw my bus outside the house and asked me if I'd followed him at ..... 90 mph earlier???? affraid

I had to disappoint him & tell him it weren't me, but I was pretty sure I knew who it was though Twisted Evil
He did exclaim "fu(k me I didn't know they'd go that fast" lol!
