Bloody hell.  Had my eye's peeled for one of those for ages, cant believe I missed it!!!

Anyway, a guy called Ben Edwards at Shock Tec www.shocktec.co.uk gave me a very reasonable price for shocks a couple of years back - they make shocks for Z-Cars, worth a shout (he might do a deal for shocks for 2 cars if you pursue it?).

Hi Stuey,

Did you buy any Coilover's?  Just wondered who you had gone with if you had.  I've bitten the bullet and ordered an Oscillating Arm from Fiat500Sport, looks like the same one, £250 with carriage so not badly priced.

Cheers, Ian
