maybe merc rims are the way forward !!!! afro

plans for the van so far is to get it a bit lower, repair the big bumpers and repaint them, im trying to get hold of the side skirts too but they all seem to be left hooker ones so the sliding doors on the wrong side Mad ,i think i might upgrade all the suspension bushes to poly bushes ready for its mot in feb, other than that i wouldnt mind getting a mesh sunvisor some golf angel eyes headlights and some smoked rear lenses, oh and a bottom half re spray! Cool

i'm 99% sure you will only get original side planking in left hooker, but look out for glass fibre replica's for rhd.

f0rd 5 stud wheels (grannie, probe) fit with a stud collar but vauxhall don't even if they tell you they do

don't, dave drive a lovely example of fords finest wheel donor Wink

just make sure if you get dagenham dustbin wheels they are cheap, as you do need to get the collars (thats 20 of the bloody of the things at three quid ago) and (possibly nuts/bolts to suit) for em or the nuts/bolts will go right through the wheel and possibly have the centre bored out to go over the front hub grease cap bit thing that covers the large nut. that said there is a much wider choice of merc rims to chose from. oh yeah check offset's as well you would be P*$$ off getting wheels you like sorting all the little bits out fitting to your van and then the slide door only goes back a foot before hitting the tyre Mad
