Some epic work there - now if only i had somewhere to install a lift!

Glad to see you went for some of the red strongflex bushes in the most critical parts - i have yellow all round and wish I went red.

Out of interest, how did you galvanise the bolts?

That is my good friend's lift. Lifts to be exact, he has two, I don't have one of my own unfortunately.

Yes, I went for the more soft setup because I've driven in an all yellow setup and if I had kidney stones they would shatter :D

There is a place nearby that galvanizes anything magnetic. They steam the parts to clean them, then put them in sulfuric acid, then steam again and finally galvanization.
