    Front Wings.

    Just ordered two new front wings as mine have rotted just behind the front indicators. How hard are they to fit? Any hidden bolts/fasteners?
    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers nobananas.
    Crank pin worked well enough. Belt had no markings. Just took a guess as to timing being one tooth out. Hit lucky. Aux belt pulley is out of line though and needs to be replaced.
