    Chidley, wheels are eurolines. As choppy has reminded me on many occasions.

    Good luck with the rest of it fella. Nice car!

    Cheers for clearing that up, I forgot to say about the car it came out of.

    It would break my heart too! At least it's not going far and you know what's going on with it. Awesome, just can't wait to get this thing through MOT!!!

    Cheers. Well a few things need to be done for MOT, going to make a start this evening at around 6. Coilovers need fitted, rear lights wired in again, front and rear bumper need fitted, speed sensor and reverse light sorted on the gearbox and it's ready for MOT.

    Using a chargespeed front bumper and monkey magic rear! Ill get pics of both tonight. If anyone has suitable sideskirts give me a shout! Want to get a rocketbunny kit down the line though for sure, except the arches as I already have overs!

    Yeh dude it's definitely going in the right direction! I've got the grid drifts on it now that were on the white 14a in the first post. 18x9.5 ET20. Trying a mates 40mm spacers on tonight to see what they look like on the rear, and the fitment on the front is perfect with 5mm spacers. They're not ideal, but I just took them off the 14 before I sold it so I had a half decent set :)

    Right so last night I managed to get a few pics and successfully fitted the coilovers :) test fitted the bumpers, the front is an absolutely terrible fit and the rear is alright actually!

    Chopaholic ate my maoam :(

    I think the next time I'm up working at it we're going to fit the bumpers and spray them. Should look tidy enough when done :)

    Hurry up and get a car. lol

    No, I'm just going to run 1 bar of boost for ages and wind you up! haha

    Yeh, I'm going to order some. Just not entirely sure what I'll need for perfect fitment.



    I really need skirts and skyline brakes if anyone has any :)

    Right, spacers need ordered. Sizes on the rear are 18x9.5 ET20 with 225/40/R18 & 50mm overfenders. What do you think I should use for perfect fitment, possibly a bit of poke? 50mm spacers?

    IMHO i think the fronts look spot on and for the rear by the looks of it i'd be going for 25mm spacers but i guess it depends what kind of look youre going for?
