Don't be put off too much by the pictures, Max tells me it's solid and the hinges are all free, the corner steadies work fine, and the roof latches work ok.

Re: Hydraulic brakes

No, that's the limit of my knowledge at the moment. Hopefully over the winter I will do a complete reccy on the brakes and suspension so I can get some stock of them in the shop.

Re: Hydraulic brakes

No the shoes aren't Mini. Haven't identified what they are yet (other than Rubery Owen) but you can get them relined easier than you can find new replacements.

Re: Hydraulic brakes

Cheers for the update.
