Yeah mate been busy with mine at the mo, having a bit of a nightmare to be honest. Brake M/C went last monday and with MOT at end of month thought i'd do the rear beam swap at same time, Which went fine, got refurbed beam with new bushes, pressure reg, copper brakes lines, braided hoses, bearings and ABS rings plus new bolts n fasteningd on Ok. only took couple of evenigs after work

 

....................BUT went to pick up new M/C sat and they'd got the Non ABS one, :mad2: and don't do ABS one, Bolloxs, Only place can get the right one is Dealers, ordered monday, went to pick up today and.............Its the wrong fuckin one!!!!!!! :censored: :bad-words: Manage to order the right one and should be able to pick it up thursday, got told there's only 3 left in country :shock:

 

Hopefully should be sorted at end of week,

 

Take it you got ur grill in the end then :clap:

 

Cheers

Mart

Hey Rob

 

This is coming along nicely, bet you can't wait for the spray shop to get busy on it!

 

I would say keep an eye out for the leather interiors being sold, especially on ebay and the like. You could get a good bargain and just put the spray on hold for a short time. You told me you wanted leather, mmm!

 

See ya soon mate.
