I got the 90 deg bends done in stainless pipe at a local exhaust place when i got my side exit modified. Have a look on ebay there should be something similar.

Just had a set of genuine clio williams 15x7j speedline alloys blasted/powdercoated anthracite at romax so i can take the turbines off for winter.

Picked them up cheap'ish, Half polished/corroded alloy, paint flaking, super bald/slashed tyres, all were unkerbed/straight though.

Before pics...







After pics....









Quite pleased with them. Wasn't 100% whether the shape of the alloys would suit the van but imo they look good. Nice & low maintenance compared to polishing the outer lip on the turbines every week to stop corrosion.

Fitted 195/45/15 toyo proxes 4rf, cheap enough for full set new off ebay. Seem pretty good now there scrubbed in a bit. Only need a new set of centre caps to finish them off, will have to wait considering the price 16 ish each!
