I went to the factory yesterday and we had a chat, explained what I was about and Mark's fine. We've agreed terms and i've placed an order. Need to finalise prices by email but looking good. I've ordered a full set for a legerra with 19mm ARB in black 80 shore all with stainless tubes and it will include the axle pads (you only need 2) Other colours are available to order but will have to be made up into sets at the factory rather than at the shop. For the time being i'm just going to hold black bushes. I'll sell them separately once we have a few spares but for the moment it will be front set / rear set / full set options in both 5 link and leaf.

Will the bushes be avalible before Xmas ? Between Xmas an new year is looking like the only chance I will get to have any car time or be anywhere longer than a couple of days so want to get some bits ready once boxing day is over an she lets me out of the house !

Thanks to Mark at APM Duraflex we will be stocking Dutton specific sets of poly bushes soon.

No longer will you need to 'shop around' to try and find the right ones. Five linked and leaf sprung, triumph or ford we will be able to do full sets or part sets.

I've also been looking at 'other stuff', I think this maybe a bit too shiny for some but ...

Seems nicely made but HUGE tailpipe may not be to everyones taste. They also do a single inlet / dual outlet, both come with reducers and support brackets. The reducers need to be bigger as they don't fit too well. Inlet is 58.5mm i/d and the outlet is big enough to lose a hand in - all in all a bit 'skyline' but well made and proper shiny :)

For 'budget' tyres they are rather grippy, certainly better than the slicks I took off.

The van looks good.  I do like the wheels.

Transit has now been 'blinged' with shiny stuff.


Still a bit gutless as the pump timing is off. I have invested in one of those OBD boxes and a full copy of Forscan on my tablet which reads and clears fault codes, gives displays of what the engine is up to in real time too.

Yes, the till is evil, I'm tempted to get the lads brown dust jackets...

Now those of you that have know me for a while know I also have a love for the Ford Transit.

From my first back in 1985 to date they have all been 'odd'...

This is the 'works van' as sponsored by Hot Wheels.....

255/60/18's. Deliberately used to correct the discrepancy in speedo readings (over 4% out) and now its bang on....no fouling, no spacers and commercial rated tyres.... Signwriting to follow shortly.
