    Its the remains of the old blower mounted idler bracket, Its coming off sometime, It all looked to goofy to me so I went with a snout mounted idler, looks way better.

    Hey mate, still loving this thread, hope you and the better half have a good christmas and new year. I have finally started a thread on here about my pick-up.

    It's a funny thing though, I love this site, but a lot of the threads on here make me feel a little intimidated about showing my work.

    Hope to get back over there one day for a longer visit, really enjoyed the last one.

    cheers

    Hi Chris, a happy xmas to you and your family too mate.

    I will check your thread out as havn't seen it yet.
    No need to feel intimidated mate, we all build differently, having seen your stuff before I would say you can hold your head up high as you do nice stuff.

    I enjoyed seeing you on your visit, hopefully it won't be the last :D

    Best wishes Steve
