Hey guys,

Just a quickie!

When you replace the door pins do you run a reamer through the holes first, is so does anyone have one which can be "hired".

I got some pins from wolfsburg west, so i need imperial reamers, either 0.317" or 0.321. Or will i just have to buy the 8.5mm and a metric reamer?

cheers guys?

I am in the same position with regards to the 8.5mm arms & it will be best to get yourself an 8.5mm hand reamer. Failing that get an adjustable one and us a micrometer, if you have one, to get the size spot on with your arms, as these will more than likely be slightly different in size.
Make sure you use some sort of cutting compound for a spot on size. If you dont it could cut the hole oversize and you will be in the same situation as before. :wink:

I think its a bit far to post for me, so I am about to have a go at making one, any hints,
I dont want to buy one as I will only use it twice, just got one door to do.
