    I can get some more I'm sure. I know the guy who made it. Anyone else want one? Sure we can censor the language. I'd like to show it to my son but he's a little bit young. Sure he knows the word but I'm still at the stage where I try to censor stuff for him!

    Yes a version with a few asterisks suitably inserted might be a better bet! One for me please.

    Pretty sure I saw a bracket there for the front ARB mount? Gerry supplies a kit with ally blocks (two halves to clamp around the ARB with a nylon sleeve to go over the ARB. If you use Gerry's kit though it's very very close to the rubber gaitors on the steering rack so you need to radius the corners to reduce/eliminate wear.

    mmm, don't think so? I've seen the ally blocks your talking about, and i think I've done my mounts in a similar place, there was definitely no mounting holes anywhere in the area, happy to be proved wrong though! From the pics i've seen the ally block through bolts go into threaded holes in the chassis? i thought about tracking down a kit, but will probably end up trying a few different bar diameters, so may not have ended up using much of it

    Check the underside of the chassis where the forward bushing is for the upper wishbone pivot rod. There’s a plate running top right to bottom left. It ought to have a pair of holes in it. That’s where the blocks bolt to. Sure I saw it on the video!

    Probably because the nylon blocks you’ve gone for are too big to fit there? If you’ve got clearance on the pinion and u/j it’ll work fine! And thank for the pics Chris!

    Yes, my first Hawk (Safety Devices chassis) had the mounting plates, but no holes, and obviously no ARB fitted.
