Top Banana!

Post by Bodsy » Thu Feb 09, 2012 11:46 pm

Well after nagging Ken for some MTR's that he managed to source for me, I popped I to his Mini/fezza garage 8-) 8-) to get them fitted.
He did think he'd have difficulty fitting the 19" to the 18" wheel I had on the front!

Anyway, Clive's 18" is now ready to make its way back to him and I'm sporting a set of expertly balanced wheels and MTRs. I've never seen anyone take so much care over balancing. Even unmounting and rotating a tyre round to get a better balance.
He had a few choice words to say about my previous tyre fitters balancing skills :whistle: :lol:

I so say discodellboys alloys in storage (less the MTRs that I know have of course :whistle: )

Top job and I got to have a look around the defender which is looking very very 8-) 8-)
Those LED spots are top quality. :thumbright:

Cheers Ken for a great job :thumbright: :thumbright: :thumbright:

Sounds good Bodsy :thumbright:

I have to say, it is very likely that there are very few people that balance tyres like Ken - but it's a heck of a trip to get them done from here :whistle:

He's only 1/2 hr from the Hemel office, so no brainer really. :thumbright:
