I got mine from Lockwoods for considerably less :) however the first one broke after doing only 8 ends :twisted: but they did exchange it for me as it was less than a year old. :D

They can come in quite handy as it makes it possible "splice" in a new piece of pipe whilst still on the car.

Also means you can replace pipes when they break at weekends. :?

Hi Ken, you haven't go a link for Lockwoods by any chance ? Roughly what did the tools cost ? I'll probably never be happy until I get my hands on a set, even if I end up never using them !

Thanks Ken, that was quick ! That's a pretty good price.
I suppose the band will be getting warmed up for the handing over cermony for your beloved MK1 pretty soon !

All too true.

Just fitted a new timing belt, it's 4 years since it had one and in that time it's covered 5,500 enjoyable miles.
