Right I have made another set of A frame spits, but today when I got home I thought I'll try them :? Doh! made 2 sets both 100mm to small Doh!






So I set about modifying them to be big enough laugh








Hopefully it won't take me long to alter the other set :lol:

my boss reckons I should put them on ebay for £99, as there are some on there at £125 eek

But if anyone on here makes me a good offer I might part with them a bit cheaper? cool

There was someone on here who had a metallic green one, it might be his! You can still pick these up quite cheap, but some people sell the GTE's in A1 condition for a couple of grand. crazy
