4x100 - 5x130 adaptors for Porche wheels ;)
5x120 for BMW.
5x112 for new VW, Audi and Merc wheels.

The Teledials look perfect on this. I'd love a set of D90's for mine.

the only thing is don't the adaptors push out the hubs quite a lot further than before? I suppose you get round this by using an unusual offset on your wheels you'd never normally use otherwise? :?

things are MEGA close but works, the only issue im having at the mo is the car is too low all round, so its making the ride harsh and clips on kerbs and stuff it just isnt fun at this height but will have no complaints once iv raised it up a little

It's just the big brake conversion set up so probably the R21 discs and then OEM callipers with extender brackets. Then he had the adaptor milled off to clear the calliper.
I think it's on 30mm adaptors up front, 35mm on the back.

I paid a lot attention when Jimmy was doing it  :lol:

Have the rear wheel adapters been machined down so they clear the caliper? I'm fitting d90's to mine but still need to get the rear adapter machined down to fit do you know what the diameter is of yours?

That's very smart and tidy mate, the colour is very nice and suits it a peach. Where did you get that carpet from it looks factory tight? So does the whole car though.

I notice you have the louvred bonnet, just out of interest are there many places that still sell or cut these holes?

Or get to college and learn how to do it yourself. A relative of mine restored a mk2 jag and did the interior himself, and OMG what a class job he did too!

May I ask how much youve paid for the respray mate? Mine deffo requires similar levels of attention.
