I bought a Gianinni oil sump and noticed the oil return opening wasn't cast that well, so had to take some material off.

I went to the garage and looked at it buried deep at the back and under its cover, then walked away and closed the garage.

Just got back from Poland with a suitcase full of goodies. Technically all I've done today was put the new made to measure cover on. But here is the rest of the swag too. Enough to keep me busy over winter.
Refurb calipers were £40, adapters were less than £10.
Kingpin kits were £15 for both.
Shock rubbers were £3.
Cover was less than £20.
Fuel pump was actually a UK purchase, eBay £21.

Just recently started to disassemble the rear suspension. I want to refurbish all the parts before putting them back together. New parts are orded.
Removing the old suspension bushes took some serious persuasion :rant and heavy iron. We welded this old press on a serious piece of steel beam and use a meter long steel tube to turn   :good:

All my parts arrived from Allegro today.  I'm considering writing a buying guide to help navigate buying things from Poland. Is this something you guys would be interested in?

Yes that would be great.  How did you make the payment? Do allegro sellers accept paypal?

I used a Revolut card, it's like a travel money card. Excellent exchange rate and no transaction fees. You don't even need a real card, a virtual card works fine.

I'll get on it shortly, if deemed good enough maybe you can sticky it on the forum somewhere.

revolut is great as most sellers prefer bank transfer. I have an address in PL so normally just pay COD then when I have a big pile of bits courier them home about £20 up to 30 kilos.
I'm popping over for a week in 2 weeks, I've found a few unusual bits I would like for BYL.
