requested details? you have pm.

A little more info.

These can be formed to suit either LHD or RHD, and will be ready for dubfreeze.

It's currently drawn to offer 40mm (just over 1 1/2") of lift. Any lift from 20mm to 50mm can be offered at a small premium.

Firm prices will be posted later in the week (provisional prices by pm)
