Re: Rear light housing and lenses

C&C housings are actually quite good. Get them of c&c's ebay shop as they are cheaper than the Internet site. £40 each tho so not cheap

Re: Another seat belt question

You haven't poked a hole through yours yet then? I have a feeling its just a hole to aid the manufacture of the panel, as you said its a bit close to the pop out catch and the luggage bars Really I just want to know if I can gain access to the void between the two windows by cutting a slot in the lo...

Re: which gearshifter is best

these bug-tech shifters look the nuts and reviews are very good, alittle costly tho :grin: Be aware that these are not a straight forward bolt on to some buses - quite extensive mods are required - they are a good shifter once set up though, quitye a few of the hardcore racers are using them.
