    just a quick post to say a massive thank you to Clive.

    I can't begin to describe just how good the cross member is, the workmanship is up there on its own.....Exceptional!!! Furthermore, the turn around time over the festive period was superb!

    I just need to figure how to get it on now lol!!!!! (Any welders North East England?!)

    But once again, thanks Clive

    Sorry I don't know, I do know that he said he was concentrating on fabricating just rear cross members rather that sliders etc

    Unless they are "WhiteCastle " then not worth eating.

    Cheers

    I work as a structural engineer this days calculating pile and ground stress very interesting or maybe not!

    Ive tried making the occasional x member but the laser cutters have given me such poor service now im not spending a grand a week on metal I cant give customers good service so have to say no to anymore orders.

    Landyfox ive got my old iphone off my daughter and will retrieve some fitting photos

    Thanks for the kind coments but my health wont allow to do a 'hardgraft' job anymore
    Regards clive aka pressbrake

    Clive,

    Understand that your sanity comes first, but it's a great shame. Your x-member is looking superb on my vehicle. It's definitely its best feature!

    Is Clive, aka Pressbrake, able to teach some young'uns the tools of the trade? I don't need a new x-member, but I feel that when I do, there'll be nothing that compares to his. I hear such good comments about your workmanship.
