Hello to all;

They were based at bridgwater, somerset. I don´t know if they are still in business. Many people had problems with them so be careful, even if the owner iseems to be kind, etc.

ok, great, I see. You probably have a classic mini steering rack fitted. If you are looking to make a LHD conversion, I have one LHD mini steering new and unused if you are interested.
