Re: Door cards

Hi Chris.....mdf is far more stable than standard ply...unless you go for marine ply.......you can waterproof standard mdf by coating with varnish etc....or you could use the premium moisture resistant Medite board.....dont forget that you fit a plactic membrane between door and card.......Steve

Re: Ball bearing for output differential series 3 - Help needed

I Rui......i have replaced the bearings in the type 3 diff with the replacements available from SNGB etc.....they worked ok...however i could not stop oil leaks........so opted for the later type of output shaft set up with taper bearings and a much better seal arrangement.....Steve
