I believe it is. :)

I have the bar and clips from one source (Pete Sparrow), but it did not have the endplates. From Simon Sobey, I have obtained one end plate with the spacer already welded on and threaded. He also supplied a 'blank' endplate for the other end. :)

So far, I have cut, drilled and tapped some 10mm steel for the blank plate.

In the next few days I hope to visit my friend up the road to weld it up as he has professional welding equipment, and would like a laugh at my attempts. :lol:

Yesterday, new shock absorbers arrived from Ecas, So I thought it best to fit it all together as the exhaust probably needs to be moved out of the way.

I have looked at it a few times wondering how to get the bar in place, and think perhaps I need to support the gearbox and remove the rear gearbox mount.

Any thoughts are welcome :D

I assume you checked that the end-plates both have the same size mounting studs for the shock absorbers: (12mm on 2cv, AZU, Dyane, Mehari. 14mm on Ami, AK, Acadiane).

The benefit of buying parts from someone who knows his stuff. ;)
