Love the detail and now your doing the annoying jobs. Love what you've done with the shnitzer diffuser, something a bit different, might have to be on the to do list.

I want to get new shocks all round but I have lost interest with working on it a bit with being so busy at work and quite like the money I'm saving rather than spending.

Cheers

Hey Cliff! Jack at royalsteeringwheels.com done the work. Best to speak to him on a price depending what you want but at the time think it was around 140 with fitting. He's based in Aylesbury so not far from you. Get it done the feel and grip is so much nicer.

Looking good! I got a Steel Gray myself and enjoyed seeing the various tail light setups you've been trying out. I like the halogens myself so its nice seeing you didn't opt for the LED route!

Looking good. Need to replace my cowel. Where did you get the puller tool from.
The black bolts in the schnitzer diffuser look good. Prefer the black surround than the chrome.

And here it is to keep my thread going lol.

So as some of you know I sold off my 3 piece Oz Mito wheels. Kinda regret doing it but at the same time it was hassle maintaining them and having to adjust the ride height to have the right look.

I made a promise not to buy anymore wheels and concentrate on the car but there's always a temptation. As an ACS fan I am a big fan of the type 2 monobloc wheels so casual browsing on ebay a few years back I found a set and made a deal.

These are quite rare as they are the 10x18 rear and 8.5x18 front.

As usual I gave them to Dips at Custom Cars to refurb them back to new in the same colour.

Had a spare set of tyres off the previous wheels so got them mounted on:

Very cool, what size are the tires? The fronts have a nice roundness to them.

Thumbs up

ACS type II & III are of my favorites. I hope some day i will grab a set of 19s or 18s (with low offsets like yours).

Very nice mate!!

They are Continental sport 3's 265/35 rear and 235/40 front. Quite meaty tyres but none of that stretch bull**** anymore lol.

Looking good, always good to see something different. Remind me a bit of escort cosworth wheels.

Cheers
