THANKYOU ! the amount of grief that i cop because i dont run a true Injun, most Uk cars have an olds 403 and thats seen as true Pontiac !!

Josh, never say never and Charlie, thankyou.

Just to give you an idea, i needed to make up a blanking panel, i had an old Ford bumper lying about so the best thing for it was to be used for a higher purpose.
