    Re: Steering column Bearing/Bush

    I've got a box of assorted bits, but struggling to think what you need from description.
    As I recall most bearings are a race and ball bearings?
    Have you a photo of what you need/ where it goes?

    I think the issue is that it's called the SEC Facebook page, but it doesn't seem to be controlled by any elected members.

    Amen to that ( both) Chris's.
    It illustrates quite well, that the search for the ultimate replica ( see other threads...) can be right for some but not for others.
    Personal choice.

    Re: LB Stratos on Late Brake Show

    Fantastic compliment to LB in the light of what's in those garages.
    And to the standard of build too.
    There are probably better cars out there or about to be now too?

    Ah! That word. Copy.
    Is that the distinction? Replica and copy mean different things.
