Speedometer

Help!

Have now picked up the press for the trailing arm bushes. If it will still be useful, I'l bring it with me tomorrow.
It would be best if you asked Simon.
If you don't have his number, let me know and I will put you in contact with each other :)
Yes it would be useful, so please bring
