I seem to remember Raj had trouble fouling a fuel line? Also I think the ends were different, could be total shite tho lol

I think the later prams had the fuel filter moved to a different place that meant the struts fouled it, Raj's was an 09, If you wann try a set Basil, can send them up..Can do flat rear brackets, to keep the ends higher.

Be worth a go lez, if you have any, they made lifting the bonnet a pleasure on the classic. Havent dared lift the bonnet on this one yet, it'd be a good excuse!
Good research for other post 10 platers. I'll square you up for the postage.

Hmm interesting, I wonder, would that distort the hinges, on the twist, so to speak?

Theyre very good, had some on the last truck, make sure you spray grease the mounting brackets otherwise they will rust. But10/10 for user friendliness
