New XR is looking good George, nice Brake upgrade and the wheels look A1.

If you are interested in the XR50 front bar, I may be able to assist you with that one. I know someone that has one but need to check on how much he wants for it.

That's awesome George, I haven't had the chance to post here yet but I'd like the opportunity to say that that is one tidy unit.

One of the first things on mine I would change would be bigger brakes. They look sensational.

And I might also add, without being too rude, that it's great to see a bloke of your age (never said old 8-) )still tinkering in the garage. I know my dad is younger than you an he is gone in a puff of smoke when you mention car work.. almost any work for that matter :wink: hope you don't take offence but good on you George you're an inspiration. (I'm almost sick of cars and not even 30 lol)

I just bought that exact one for $280 last week from repco :\

I finally fixed up the Radio problem, with a little help from Troyman. :D He gave me a piece of Harness which I was able to add to the Dash one where the idiots had cut it. Used a couple of 12pin connectors from J-car and added the harnesses together, radio works. :D
