New section ?
Are you after posts that already on here so that they are in one place and can be transferred ?
I could suggest a few if so.

I like the upgrades/modification section idea. I also like the idea of a projects & restoration section.

Busy weekend at the NEC; couple of shots of the job done. Having prepared the weekend before by cracking all the bolts and dismantling the hubs and discs the Brake Kit from PNM went straight in no bother. The bleed was a mess due to mis-aligned seal on the bleed kit :oops: only time will tell on the paint work :oops:
