Braked a frames are cheap as chips on ebay ! Sellers seem to think they are car specific,they ain't. The braking is easyer than you think. All it is ,is the handbrake breakaway cable tied around the foot brake in car,tensioned fairly accurately. Important thing to remember is to leave key in to hold steering lock off ! I don't bother with the brakes,looks the part,just hope you don't get stopped by jobsworth.2 eyelets on your front beam,any crap welder could do is all you need so make sure you get the 2foot long rod with it. ;-)up

It's about time i sorted out this. Does anyone know of a small oneway/check valve i can get to go in the end of my fuel breather pipe ? It currently hangs down under the car,not a problem but fuel can pour out when full or going round roundabouts trailing under my hot engine. A friend suggested a tyre valve stuffed in there but i fancy summit more proper,I've grown out of cheap bodge and make do.

If your post is aimed at me at all,could be interested if veiwed. I will be of line after tomorrow lunch until 1st june. I now have a trimmer friend who could make adjustments,but is reluctant to make complete thing due to time it would take . I'm no time waster if interested,then i am.

Ruthless indeed.  I hate trimmers (whar a surprise,Matt's moaning again). Booked in 5 months in advance for a simple campervan bed,then 2months of excuses to then be told ' I'm really busy now it will be a year'. This is all after driving an hour each way 4 times to arranged meetings they forgotten to be there. Find an old woman with a sewing machin.

Exactly what i was gunna do when they didn't fit,but the only thing i had around big enough to make templates was carpet. The whole idea was to not have the hastle,with pics and sizes i gave him (being a trades person)he said spot on,HA. So after doing templates WOW i have now done it anyway. So sent them back.
