Default Re: WOW ! I thought I was on my own...

Thats the good thing about this forum, the unexpected advise that sends you another way and the job improves no end as a result, thanks guys !

I had another think about drilling the frame again and didnt do it ! What I did do however was keep the same hole and reinforce it by welding in a 12mm crushbar which should in theory put the strenth back into the frame after initially drilling it, I basically drilled the hole I made in the frame from 10mm to 12mm and inserted a 12mm bar into which I drilled a 10mm hole and welded it in, done !.....(But I'll keep an eye on it).
While I had the welder out I also put a stay on the exhaust pipe, which is nice and rigid now.
