Re: Hello all, young Etype owner joining the club :)

Welcome Thim! Fantastic job you are doing. I was only doing bicycles at 15!! You have clearly done plenty of homework or have an experienced guide. Excellent back axle work :smile: Only thing for me is I don't like to see a car in all one colour, inside and out which is why I changed my interior to...

Brake slave cylinder
