Cheers, really pleased with it. Canvas for the pop top was delivered today so need to get started on the frame for it.

Another busy weekend ahead of our first trial outing next weekend. Both front hubs have new wheel bearings and vented discs with new calipers. I had an hour spare so also got close to finishing changing the glass fuse blocks over to blades. When my now wife and I started dating I suggested a classic mini which she adored but it came with glass fuses that caused no end of problems so I've sworn off them! All the wires are fitted with crimp spades using a kit from Amazon. I was going to spend more on a crimper but saw this one for £20 with 150 connectors and thought it was worth a gamble, which it was, great bit of kit!

Hi mate,

I don't suppose you have a link to the crimp tool do you? I'm currently building a 4x4 sprinter out myself and have been disappointed so far with my choice of crimp tools!

They are the the Preciva ones, I can't find a way to send a link thanks to it always opening in the app. They are not perfect thanks to being quite restrictive in cable size so I've been considering buying the ones with interchangeable dies from 12v planet.
