Coolio, was thinking they are a good base to get painted/powder coated etc.

Same here, I bought a rear from them a while back, all good, they are made by ATE by the looks of it in the Ad so should be fine.

That is a great price. I bought a pair in January and I paid just under £200. Damn.
More annoyingly I've just taken them off to sell and thought £60 for them was a good price for someone. Seems not now !! oh well
