Bit more done. Drivers side is done, got the rear wheels spaced out to fill the arch, now I can see how much bodywork needs cutting for clearance.

How big of a spacer in the rear in the end Mat? I need a 40mm in my to fill the rears and I'm already running 11" et8!

Really must pop by at some point - what part of the city are you in?

That's interesting, so my wheels are only poking out about 5-6mm more than yours without spacers, 50mm is going to be wide! DO you have any concerns running that size spacer on track and the stresses on everything? I guess time will tell!

I've just moved out to Stoke Holy Cross, so not far from you. When the missus gives me a pass one sat or sun I'm give you a holla and come nosey!

I lived in Framingham earl most of my teenage life, still go back there now and then for mates and stuff. I went to the posh restaurant in Stoke not long ago, I remember when it was a pub, ace for underage drinking hehe.
I知 not to worried about a 50mm spacer, is it any worse than a -70 offset rim which I would need to run no spacer, I知 not sure there is a difference?
Ultimately I知 sure the bearings will suffer quicker but hey what ya gonna do?
Yup, come over whenever you like mate, I壇 like to see your 46, is it done yet? Any pics of it?
