It's genuine as well!
Thanks. On my watch list but unfortunately I can't afford it this month. Spent far too much on tools ...and a holiday to placate the wife. :lol:

Brackets seem very different, especially in height. Is this right? The offside does look like it's original and the nearside looks a later addition. The nearside welds (almost looks tacked on) also came away when I pulled it with my fingers. So will definitely need some work back there. Also the bolts are loose on it too.
Someone jacked it in the wrong place, I could slice a used one off a scrapper for you.

WTF does he say "look and see, could be rare" on every single item he's listing ?. Talk about annoying/pointless, I'm sure it makes things sell faster !!!
