    Hi Peter, how's thing's going. Been off the forum for a while. My pc went bang and can't afford to replace it at the moment.
    Just wanted to ask, as I've mislaid all my paperwork, what the model of car the steering rack came off to do the conversion. Was it a citroen C15 ?
    Hope your well, all the best, Gary.
