Re: Damn, he was right!

They are pretty flimsy though . Silly thing here is that that sort of mount would pass wof (mot ) on a factory car .... but would be rejected on a scratch build or heavily modified car , you would have to fit 4mm plate of a minimum area ( not sure how big )

Worth buying a couple of Ford ones at that price, incase you need at later date.
Yeah , get a few , keep one or two and put the rest on ebay for £ 15 each 😁. I have done this a few times , so long as I get a free one out of it in the end Im happy .
