    Looking forward to giving it a damn good thrashing when the snow and ice clears! Was a bit dissapointed when I started stripping the buggie tho,the rear shock was like a dog leg and the other damper rods were pitted so contacted GAZ for new damper rods and seal kits. Sorry sir we dont do that send them down and we repair them, "and how much will that cost" £27.50 per shock and how much for the damper rods thats included in the price sir a full rebuild new damper rods seals and valves all for £119 delivered back to the door GOOD DEAL!

    1 1/4 is fine I have shelved a two seater for the moment that is using 32 x 2 mm cds not erw the bender is a record bender that I cut the head off and welded to a post allowing you to bend through the horizontal found it a lot easier, there is a thread in tools and techniques http://www.mig-welding.co.uk/forum/showthread.php?t=8348&page=2
