Here you go, PICCIES!!

Better than I originally thought they would turn out. They used galvanised tube, the circles were c&c cut and the bare steel ends have had a coat of primer.

So I will now send everyone who has pm'd me details on how to pay etc.

the pictures show the yellow prototype and the new one side by side so you can see the improvement, the new ones are lighter too.

Fitted mine last friday and then drove it from my parents house in South Gloucestershire upto my Parents-in-law's farm in Warwickshire and my word what a difference it makes. The cars handling is frankly transformed feeling much taughter and with far less body roll into sharp corners. My Dad drove the car back to his after the Stoneleigh show as his local body shop is doing some work for me and he too reports that it makes a big improvement. He is going to be fitting one to his Mk 1 Pi very shortly.

Excellent product and money very well spent
