my current wheels are borbet a's 7.5x16"
not something that fits the 5 off the shelf. i had them machined to fit but might be getting replaced soon as i cant stop toying with old ideas lol.

the new seats are coming along slowly but getting there. diy retrims arnt as easy as i want them to look good (i hope they do anyway)

and still no word on my respray  :(

I spent ages looking at this pic before realising duh.. rear axle driver's side?!!lol I electrolysis tanked mine recently. It rusts the electrode away and in between, the charge derusts the workpiece. It's just flakes off and leaves clean metal behind. A quick coat of primer and black enamel and it's lookin good as new :D

hears some more progress photos.

thanks to my brothers "barn find" (tungy gtt) i now have some old skool renault wheels. there in quite good condition but need a refurb as i managed to wash the paint off when cleaning the years of grime off them.

i really like it on them and it handles soo much better even on budget tyres



i fell it might want raising a little though?
