cheers
Thanks for that - I'm having a look at it today. I have also made a battery carrier from two reusable shopping bags and suspended the 3 sla from the cross bar with velcro straps - it has made a big difference to the handling and feel (especially when walking it about) at a total cost of $2. The bags even have 'Green and environmentally friendly' stamped on them so I can feel holier than thou

edit: checked - mine and had zinc paste on the heat sink and proper support posts ~ sounds like yours was made on a Friday afternoon
