    The crimper is a nice bit of kit, it is an unbranded Chinese thing, it came with spare O-rings for the hydraulics, IIRC I got it from Ebay.

    If you look at the Pics below you'll see the Steering Rack is missing.

    Hi Dan,
    Sounding nice, are you going to keep the car after doing all this work, or sell it on as a MOT'd runner?
