mwrench subframe fix.

Post by ron » Mon Jan 15, 2018 11:24 am

I recently received a batch of these kits from Ed Raether, which have now all been reserved.

With currency conversion, courier costs and customs charges they worked out at £42.00 each (inc.UK postage).

I'm contacting Ed about another batch so, if anyone requires a kit, please contact me soonest so I can get an idea of numbers.

Anyone else in Oz interested?

Gaz, this is the steering bracket re-inforcement kit. It's a high stress area that quite often breaks on our cars. You can find good details in Songs posts beginning here; viewtopic.php?f=25&t=25858&start=550

Hey Ron, can you please let me know if you are successful in contacting Ed :-k

I have both emailed and called him, with no reply [-X

Guess I could always do a drive by, but it's not like him :-?

Thanks =D>

Gents, good news, just heard from Ed today =D>

So he's been going through some health issues, but is on the mend and all is OK [-o<

He's going to be off line for a bit, but wants to work through Ron exclusively, when dealing with sales into Europe :wink:

After having issues of non-payment and whatnot dealing with undesirables, he would rather focus on one point of contact moving forward, makes sense, of course \:D/

So Ron, I would expect that you will hear from Ed sooner than later :lol:
