    Ditto looking forward to this :thumbup:

    There's probably as many of us owners needing to do these jobs now rather than slamming and tuning ;)

    The welding has been done well, very neat just how it should be

    I wouldn't expect it to be cheap as it takes time and skill to do it right

    Keep us updated with the build progress
