On top I have replaced the chair with a…Continue

Affordable thermal imaging would be…Continue

Through years of modifying cars I have learnt (the hard way!!) that when you make something stronger, there's always something else in the chain that will fail. So with this in mind I have designed these legs, and while…Continue
