Lowell Neff -

There are also a number of small shops in Europe, usually French or German who do their own in-house LL design and fabrication for regional customers.

My Leading Link front end was self-fabricated, with technical assistance from a reputable machine shop to do some of the more critical pieces. A fair amount of people attempt to design and build their own front ends - from a cost standpoint, it makes sense - but you bloody well better know what you are doing engineering wise, considering the obvious critical safety aspect of getting it done right the first time
Thanks a lot- great info
