I'll be watching this one with interest, especially around the Red9 stuff. I'm considering that for my project - it'll be interesting to see how you get on.

Yet Another great update :cheers: :cheers: :cheers:



Well done...



You tease us with no photos of your red9 :bounce: :bounce: :: :bounce: :blackeye: :bounce: :bounce:


Mike ..... .. Master cylinder ? ..... It's the metal thing the brake fluid bottle clips into !!!! Well what ever it is ... PAINT IT ..... As I didn't and over the winter months I'm going to have to remove mine from gerry and paint it as its not protected ... I thought it had a protective layer on it but I was wrong and it keeps getting a surface rust on it :evil: :evil: :evil:


So mate paint it now as its easy todo ..... Prep it .... Light coat of etch primer on it them paint it black job done ..... Wish I did it ..... Now I got to take it off thus meaning I have to bleed all my brakes again gggrrrrrrr

Over and out
