Hello Phil, just a question before I commence my smoker upgrade. My original smoker/heating/fan unit will not work. So I decided to change the whole unit for the new smoker upgrade. Is the heating element and fan protected by a fuse? I was testing the heating element to be sure I had 'blown' it, bef...

Interesting thoughts on the recoil.. I hope to install a recoil system, in the Autumn for my Comet....if Mark at Armortek has any plans for producing these units, then I for one' have the 'readies' burning a hole in my pocket. If only because my attempt at addressing this addition and constructing m...

Hello Lee, now that's what I call ' a good idea son', (older forum members will have heard that saying).

However, the opposite has proved to be the case, and she sits on the road a treat. You are correct about the Comet/trailer display properties, the height and distance works well. I ...
