one of the bolts were buggered and one of the holes in the plate didnt line up so had to drill that out.
Looking good now though.
Also had to get a couple of nuts and bolts to bolt the new plates together.

Was it the front offside hole?I found it a wee bit tight but just eased off the others then they all drew in.I did add a few BIG washers (Ive also found that 6 sided sockets work better on our shite nuts n bolts!)

on the front plate the 2 fronts bolts were ok as were the 2 out side rears.

on the rear plate the 3 rear bolts were ok after I drilled one of the holes out.
the front holes on the rear plate bolted to the rear of the front plate but I had to get 2 bolts and some washers for the job.

I agree the hex sockets work much better. less chance of rounding the fookers off
