Hey John,

Nah, I can't see KW bowing to the whim of a garagista wanting a colour change - I'm sure it could be done by my local plating shop if push-came-to-shove...I guess it depends on how easy...

Bonsoir Monsieur Pat!

The tare? Does that translate to the spring rating? If so, then KW don't actually specify what the ratings are in the specifications but the numbers printed on the springs...

Project 2 - Suspension Refreshing

So, although I've had some of the parts for a while, they've been sat in my home office until the engine project has been completed, hence no writing up of anything so far.

I have been pondering...

Hi folks,
