Scroll down a few posts on that facebook page and you'll find it. It's orange, you can't miss it. I know nothing about it, but it does look interesting.

It was done as part of a rust repair, all up was about $800. O'Briens could do it but you'll need a panel beater to sort the top corners out as you'll have a small gap, as well as the mounts for the...

Pull the handle up about 3 to 4 clicks (I think that's the recommended amount), then you want to adjust the handbrake shoes so they are engaged on the discs/drums. After this, go to the point where...

For a weekender I'd personally go for originality and stick with what was available from factory, even to the point of sticking to what the build plate says, engine wise. That's just me but, others...
