    Default Clarkins Car Accessories, London UK

    I know some lads from the UK are always lurking about. I need some mutual aid.

    Looking for opinions on a vendor located in London, called Clarkins Car Accessories. Their website is: http://www.clarkins.co.uk/

    The reason I ask is because they claim to have a full rebuild gasket set for the engine in my antique firetruck, and they only want $185 for it including the international shipment. It sounds too good to be true, so I am trying to find out about this place before I send them money that I will never see again.

    Any of you lads from the UK ever deal with them, or perhaps a friend??? Looking for any input.

    THANKS!

    Not a problem. As long as I am not stimulating some crook's economy.
