Dam those wheels are nice!!

I'm not sure on numbers but is a thick flange s block .
They are hardy spicer joints .

Looks like it has been in a race car at some point with the scatter shield on it ?

Are those bars staying in the boot ? Not sure I can picture what you are doing there ?

Looking good though Very Happy

Thanks for the info Ben! Yeah it was a mates old race engine. He pulled it out when he finished his 1380 turbo, back in the late 80s or something.

Haha the bars are just resting. The top one will be mounted between the top of the two new turrets (which i need to get onto). That bottom one has to bolt between the two rear original subframe mounting holes, near the back of the wheel well. It mounts on the underside but as the spare wheel tub is still in the way still (i.e. i havent chopped it out yet), i placed it on top for a rough idea of dimension between the mounting holes.

And i got email confirmation that that wheel is indeed mine Very Happy shouldnt be long before they're sent!

Popped around to a mates place after work today and took possession of my nice meaty Dunlop Formula R's Twisted Evil

He has seen the doors i have and how they "fit" in the door apertures, so offered me a spare set to borrow.

Pretty much just replace the existing turrets with 100mm pipe with a cap on it. The mounting points are the same positionally. I might move the point vertically 25mm, but its not necessary.

So take measurements of the existing shock mount holes and then cut out them out + enough space to slot the 100mm pipe in. Got to have some end caps welded on to seal the tops of the pipe.
Slide piping in and ensure the shock mounting hole is in the same position as original and weld the turrets in.

Thats how it goes in simple terms
