we done some trial fittin and measuring up of both my wheels and marty rs's on his bolf tonight... if we measured right after the rears are machined down a couple of mm and redrilled with some camber through in, there should be around an inch of poke... on both sets after martys are built to 17x12 rears :twisted:

busted the sump on thursday night so striped the sump and engine mounts off the car and found that the engine can only be raised on the drivers side.. the passanger side mount dont sit flat on top of the chassis leg but is notched down! when the spacer is put in its bringing the gearbox up and is touching the chassis leg

so its only the drivers side i can raise so the sump is going to be plated and the drivers side mount is going to have costom spacers made for it hopefully all will be sorted soon

as a result of rasing the engine a ive also had to do a notch.. as the drive is banging like mad so ive spent the last 4 hours cutting it out didnt think it was gonna be as hard to cut as it was but i got there in the end (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Love this car, see it a few times at various shows and it really stands out!

I have to admit, when I read the title, I nearly didnt bother looking, I assumed it would have halfords alloys tinted windows etc etc
