Re: Headlight wiring??

Re: HUGE Thanks to Turbo Mike!!

Hi Dave,

All I could see on your last update was loads of pictures of cat's.

I hope Mike hasn't been using the wall paper paste on your pets.

Matty

P.S. Dave

Mike was a time served as a upholsterer, before changing trades.

Are you talking about the twin 40 DCNF carbs, on a 90 degree manifold, k&n filters and every thing that is required to sort servo and water cooling?

Yes I have a set, might be tempted to let them go if price is right? PM for details.
