Here's a few pics I took for the chop for Matt last nite, showing what the narrowed front end looks like with a skinny steel rim on Twisted Evil







Just a shame it looks like at least the o/s front drum will need replacing as one of the bolt holes is threaded No

Well, last night i pulled out the interior ready for a damn good scrub and started taking her to bits ready for Rich to paint...
Test fitted some 4.5j steels on the front - Ricks got a pic - really nice tuckage!!!!
Managed to strip the thread in one of the bolt holes - new O/S front drum needed!!!

7 days to Dubs.... will it be done?!!!

That's what I did with Sharon's car when we went to Bug Boogie & the rest of the bolts worked loose on the trip to Reading .... and the rear wheel fell off as we crossed the cattle grid onto the show! affraid
and we had to come back on a recovery truck Sad

So after that I wouldn't ever chance doing it again buddy, but if you want to it's completely up to you fella, your call ..... but I strongly recommend swopping a new drum on. it's only a half hour job & well worth the piece of mind it will give for the effort! Wink
I shudder to think what would have happened if it'd happened on the motorway rather than a forest track doing 5 miles an hour!!! pale

Just spoke to Rich and he's a bit busy @ the mo now, the mini is back
So for dubs, the chop will still be mottled red Sad
I'll get the paint sorted after the summer Twisted Evil

So for now, it'll be going onto skinny steels, cheeky stinger poking out the back, tidy the interior and strap 'er up and enjoy her for what we have left of the summer.... She'll be hibernating over the winter as she's about as watertight as a seive!
I'll think of silly things to do to her over the coming weeks, i've still got the turbo, intercooler and engine block sat in my kitchen

lol!

spent yesterday afternoon at the unit which was quite productive.... Scoops' old seats from the cab are now sitting pretty in the chop and looking Fooking awesome.. cheers Rich

Put the 4into1 header on and tried the Stinger - sat down and giggled like a little girl at how loud it was!!! Probably not brilliant for everyday use Smile

tonight the wings and bonnet should go on, then there's just the brake drum (on order from heritage) and changing the wheels over to sort before dubs at the castle...
