Re: Armoured doors

Thanks for the info and the photo ., I agree doesnt seem to be a lot of difference so perhaps I have them correct ,being so new to Armortek I tend to think it is my fault if something doesnt seem right , However the forum is great for imformation

Front and rear wheel bolts

To those who have bult the RR armored car with solid wheels , did you find that the front and rearr wheel bolds , M5 X 16 csk front and M5 X 25 csk rear
were long enough? Or did you have to do some fettling to the wheel hubs ??
Thanks

Rear Axle
