good work there, I like the idea of the VE rack, the length looks pretty right!
No matter what the question is, the answer is always more horsepower!

thanks Sammy

I got the ve rack sitting pretty much were the bedford one sat (height and spacing off the crossmember)
the length of the ve rack is narrower so I will be putting spacers on both ends the same as Busy did to his transit rack will post pics of them and mounting brackets when I get it all sorted
