Ok, dallas have wheels in stock, may have to source spring hangers from Europe,  unless of course any forum members have any knocking about.

I guess we now know why the plate was there   pretty much holding it together,  I promise to give it a nice steady retirement Jerry   if jeeps could tell a story this one would be tough.

And of course a man who knows what he's doing,  probably not the worst one Jerry has done certainly not one of the best   it gives a good insight to people starting off.
