Thanks for looking, thoughts of selling it are running in my mind as I fancy a change but haven’t a clue what it’d be worth if I was to sell it on, suppose as much as someone’s willing to pay.
I had those camber bolts for a while and never fitted them because I had no way of measuring them, but I got a new iphone and just used a spirit level app to do it, goes down to decimals so was able to get 1 neg to the decimal, isnt perfect but is pretty close, i got the idea off of here. Probably the best cheapest mod Ive done, apart from the top engine mount
