    How much were the adapters if you don't mind me asking? This is looking good dude. That bit lower and tuck those wheels and it'll be mega!

    They're the Driftworks ones. So £114 a pair I think.

    So, bought some used Tein Ha's from Phil BLR off of here. Turned up this morning so I set out putting them on this evening. All went relatively well, although it confused me as to how you changed the right height on these, because the coilover doesn't screw into itself when you turn the collar, rather just moves the spring. Guess it changes the spring rate or preload at the same time and is an old way of doing it. Iirc these were replaced with the Super streets. Either way, got it in the end, and pretty happy with the ride height at the back.

    Just waiting for DW to spend me some nuts that I was missing to put the last wheel on, a which point I can tackle the ride height at the front. Will be rolling these rear arches on the weekend. Hopefully can get away with just a light roll.

    So, I made a properly juvenile mistake earlier when going to fit my new nardi. When I got the car, it had an old momo on it, so without really thinking, I just ordered a pcd adapter from DW.

    [​IMG]

    I took the wheel off, fitted the adapter and then fit the Nardi. I soon discovered that the horn button wouldn't fit in the centre bore and assumed it was because of the momo boss. After about 20 minutes fucking around with it, I took the wheel and adapter back off, took a closer look for the first time, and realised there was ALREADY a spacer on here. Took that off, and Tada... a Nardi boss haha!

    [​IMG]

    So, I had essentially been trying to fit a wheel to a nardi adapter, to a momo adapter, to a nardi boss ha!

    Once I realised my ridiculous mistake, I took it all off, and just straight up fitted the wheel and the horn. There will be a for sale thread for both of the adapters, in case anyone needs one!

    [​IMG]

    Whilst I was at it, fitted my Key!s racing knob.

    That head unit has a minidisk player behind it, turns out there is a badass Japanese punk album in there!

    Just waiting for a new seat rail to turn up from Japan for my Bride Ergo as the company I bought it through ordered the wrong one :( and hopefully tomorrow, I'll have the last of the nuts turn up for the spacers after the mix up, so can fit the last wheel and lower the front end. Ready to roll the arches on the weekend. Then next week I hope my paperwork turns up, and it's good to go for now!

    Why don't you just take off the spacer? Looks like you don't really need them with these wheels. Rolling the arches will only cause paint to flake off, causing rust to your mint chassis. And that would be a shame.

    Because they're 4-5 stud conversion spacers.

    Think it was from Nengun. Either there or RHD japan. Pretty sure it was the former though.

    Thanks man. Would have preferred a proper 5 stud conversion. But it's a ballache and went with what I had at the time.

    So, set about tackling the rear arches today to get these wheels to fit properly.

    [​IMG]

    With the grateful help of my good friend, Badham, we started heating and hammering the lips in, before getting cracking with the roller. Also undersealed the arch whilst we were at it.

    First time either of us have done this, so pretty happy with the results.

    Levelled up the ride height on the rears too. Wanted to lower the fronts and dial in a little camber, but I was both tired and hungry, so that will have to wait for a couple of days. Should be sitting pretty once that's done.

    They're the right way up on my phone, the right way up on photobucket, the wrong way round when I view the thread on my phone, and the right way up when I view it on my computer. Odd.
