      Cheers mate..... Yeah the wheels are 7.5j and an ET of 22 along with the 10mm spacer it looks pretty much perfect. Reduced the rear arches a bit before painting the rear floor so should be no rubbing issues either. Will get it outside and get all the dust of it tommorow at some point and begin prepping the bodywork. Shouldn't take too long!!

      Just a few pics of recent work. Just been making sure all my panels fit as they should. Door gaps, rear light etc. Better off doing it now before I start prepping it for paint. Also sorted some rust behing the OS rear light.

      Your workmanship and attention to detail is amazing.

      I should have replaced the wheel arch like you did, but looks like i'll have to fab metal for mine.

      Cheers mate....I had to do some fabricating on the inner arches. The wheel arches themselves are not original parts and only cost my like £20 each off ebay in the UK.

      Just a wee update....was hoping to have in primer but has needed more prep work than I anticipated. Done a mock up of the front end as nothing fitted. The way the wings met the headlamps and bottom of the grille was rubbish but all sorted now.













      Work round rear lights done....





      Thats it for now but next update will show this all primered!!

      Got some things painted.....Not the best pics but lack space to store all these parts.

















      A few imperfection and sh*t in the paint but took 4 good coats and going to wet sand it all and polish over the next week so should look good.

      Some recent parts I aquired....



      More updated soon!!
