Cheers fellas

So, the alternator packed up and I was unable to get in the car! also the alternator boiled the acid in the battery and ducked it, so that had to be replaced. I got a warranty with the car, which I completely forgot about so chucked it into a garage I know well and claimed the lot, Sat back and didn't pay a penny ... Happy days.

Fitment is pretty much there, I've had the car up and down messing with ride height and spacers. This is how she sits now. Going to spend an entire day on her next week over the holidays as I've got some free time finally!

That's pretty tight there Adam!


Give her a good test drive first and let everything settle. My Noggy took a good 1.5k to settle and now I just need a minor adjustment on drivers front coilover.

Thanks again for the kind comments, I can appreciate people might not be into the 20's thing ( I never used to be!)

Mike, I can assure you, once I'm done there will be no clearance issues. I have a full machine shop to my disposal and I know how to use it   . The only problem I have is getting time to use it for myself   . I'm making my own spacers to suit the car and will be adjusting the ride height as i go . These wheels do not bolt straight on without issues, just in case others are thinking about it

Hell, I made this arch gap work on my S15 with R888's

Looking good - I wasn't brave enough to go for 20s - at some point I intend to have my 19s diamond cut to a similar finish, it's a shame they aren't as aggressively concave as yours.

Your 19's look awesome though, buddy! What et are yours?

I didn't realise they were the same spoke design until I saw your car in the other thread. I think the diamond cut face really adds a nice touch to the finish, looks great in the light.

Cheers Adam.
The wheels are 9j ET33 with 20mm spacers and are currently fitted with 255/30 r19 Yokohama Advan Neova tyres - a bit too soft for daily use but grip like velcro!
