Two pro tech shock absorbers; going back to pro tech for a refurb. Not bad only 2 damaged shocks for a seasons racing new ones are £90 and a refurb is £35'ish so it's well worth having done .

Once the rear bumper has been removed you need to make good (clean) the steel before welding on new steel.

Not a bad's night work. Mechanic Wayne (Red overalls) achieved 4th place in the Christmas Cracker Mechanics Race. Also of note the photos on the garage door are Smithy snr, Cronny and Chissy on the left and the Joblin boys on the right. Cheers Rob
