Thanx for the info.I am running 17" so if 16" is a problem Í'll look for another type.

A 15" or smaller with a low ET number would be ideal with these flares I guess.

Yea. reckon if you found the right setup you may be able to get them on. but i need 10mm spacers, stretched rubber and possibly rolled guards for my fronts to fit properly. Think they are 16x6.5 et40's so they hit the strut tower at the moment.

So i figured its about time for an update. i now have all 4 16 inch wheels on with 5mm spacers all round. My steering play has been sorted however i may need new track ends and wishbone bushes.

RUST.
i have a palm sized hole under my battery, my passenger sill front is horrendous, the rest of the sills need preventative work, hatch seal lip needs cutting and replacing plus there's surface around windows. it is ALL being done next week. at the rather meager cost of $450nz. around 250 pounds.

Once that's done i need two rear bearings, rear drums looked at and to sort out my engine mounts. then my ol girl will be on her way for a wof (mot) check! 4 years since her last one. then its just case of summer rolling with the sunroof open and the sounds cranked.

Yarr

update time. heres what's happened recently






a f###load of nothing!

but today i received my 200FT setup!
amping.

so in a few months when funds permit this will be happening.
turbo on
oil and water lines sorted
afm moved to other side
NO intercooler gonna be run.

i have already sorted parts for a piping kit. car has a viscous and electric fan so i figure aluminum pipes running over top should be ok with zero lag.

my biggest issue will be drilling sump for a return feed. i may even make it clear the brake booster. so will keep updates going as it happens.

Have a look at a Renault 21 intercooler.You may be able use that as a transfer pipe.Granted it may not be easy to source one,but they do exist.

This way keeps costs down, should kill lag and require less modification. aluminum piping above two massive fans should do ok to cool it down i reckon.

i got all of that done for $300 around £150.
What remained of the sill on the left front was paper thin and had a very big hole in middle of. Quite simply I'm bloody stoked!

So i figure its update time.

Since getting car back from rust repairs, i have brought my old red girl back in an horrendous state. Poor dear. The entire rear end is still good. Bearings brakes etc so i did what anyone would do given the amount of insanity i harbour. I decided to swap the whole rear suspension over. So i proceeded to unbolt leaves hand break cables driveshafts shocks brake line on the red car and just roll the rear out. Piece of piss. 2 hours work.

About half a week later i decided to work it over while it was out, so ordered some leaf Poly's off dai through 360beast, my middleman lol, so once they were worded i tracked down some 1.5" blocks and new nuts and bolts everywhere.

After that i started work on the white car suspension removal. This took two days as i was taking extreme care not to break anything, plus i had interruptions, like work. Once that was all unbolted and out i rolled it away and it has sat there since. Has bad worn drums and shot bearings.

So while i waited for the bushes to turn up i pulled the cracked dash off and replaced it with a good one, after i tidied up all the wiring. Test fitted my extra gauge panel. Doesn't sit right IMO. Am getting fibreglass reps made now so may see how they fit.

So a few days later my 200FT loom ecu etc turned up with my bushes (thanks Luke) and i promptly set to setting my leaves on fire. I remove bushes the fun way :). Cleaned up the springs fitted the bushes and the blocks and bolts etc.

All thats left is to reconnect hand brake cables and bleed brakes then she will be rolling, tighter and lower.

Your welcome :D if you need anything else give me a shout.

BTW Logan isn't joking I have a photo of burning leaf spring bushes on my email :lol:

On the ebay listing he says the 940 has got to go soon so I will see when I can get the flywheel.

Duckbill and trying to sell the seatbelt, then it's just get the flywheel and even if I can't remove the wiring then cut out the relays from the 940 and get the sensors off of the back of the b200ft.

Did you notice on the tracking it was stopped for 2 days and given "detailed inspection" I was panicking thinking they were going to destroy it, good thing I didn't send the seatbelt then :lol:
