Thanks Greg, I have learned so much along the way, especially how much you can achieve yourself. The only thing that I farmed out was the laser cutting of the stainless because it was gunna take me too long to build bloody one :shock: :shock: :D , gotta have a laugh.

Cheers Damo

Well done Damo, sounds like a great day.
You're not the first person to get the steering wrong either, I can remember a club member doing that at Lake Leake a few years ago.
