Made mine longer than all my cars - I had got fed up with having to crawl under the car and roll into the pit, or having only part of the car over the pit at the last house . . .Ladder at each end and its longer than the average car.
Depends on your POV, long shafts are simpler and cheaper to maintain but Rotoflex rears are supposed to have better handling characteristics but are harder and more expensive to maintainI'm lucky I guess, Mine is a very late Mk3!
This, on top of the new aluminium tool bracket! Getting a bit worried about all this tidying up you are doingWhilst the Chiron was doing them I started sorting out some drills, looks like I am going to have to make another one, have quite a few MT3 and MT2 to sort yet but I can't believe how many MT1's I have. Now I just have to work out where I have space in the workshop to put another drill stand
