they were originally ET45, thats the mounting face +45mm off center on a 5 inch rim. now the front space has been made bigger, the center of the wheel has moved, making the mounting face of the wheel now 20mm off center on 7" rather than 45mm on a 5 inch? dont know if that makes sense.

Excellent. You deserve another sticker for the other side - I might get round to sticking one in an envelope and sending it out eventually ;)

Not very imaginative I know, but I cant think of much to work well with your body colour, stock black or stock silver. Goldly orangy bronzey colour to pick up the orange in the indicators could work well too but would need to be a metallic.

Sort of makes sense, yeah... Just not clued up on wheels at all which is why I'm struggling with the Rostyles... Looks like the dimensions you've gone for are spot on, but then you've got your arches rolled haven't you?

Need to figure out what ET and what band I can put on without doing any arch mods or anything?... Yours look fantastic though... can't wait for you to get some paint and rubber on! :p

blast and paint now :D what you think about the colour on the fabia in the one pic?
Is that the colour you're planning on the wheels? It's a nice colour... yours?

The fabia is one of my projects for the missed. Im having the drivers side painted next week, just thought i could get them done at the same time. Not realy feeling it though, was only a thought, same guy will be painting them anyway. Im looking at golds, was keeping it on the downlow. But whats the point lol. A dark gold, benson and hedges old packet type??
 
I'm guessing this is the kinda colour you're on about?... One word... YES! That would look schweet! :)

Also, this is the type of colour I was on about but your choice looks so much better! Would go with the APO a treat!

nope, trying to get them blasted has been a mission tbh, going to have to do them by hand and then paint them myself also. sometimes your better off not having mates who "can do that" for you

I know lol, i dont want to sell it. But im sick of getting dicked about with the misses car, its looking like it may be easier to out this and use the money to fix her car. People on ebay who bid on things then dont come up with the money should be locked up!!!!

i may have to go for a drive in the misses car and accidentaly get hit by a flaming meteor, its that time of year apparently

Standard micra tail lights, ordered a set of LHD ones off german ebay to have the 2 reverse lights like Mr Jay said. or you could run 2 fogs so they are all red. i still have the LHD red one.

this is where my k11 bandeds ended up




and my new ones :D

If it aint Jap its Crap!

standard steels made wider by this guy http://www.alonzecustom.co.uk/ the micra ones cost £50 a corner for any size band. My polo ones are £55 a corner because they are 16s. Im luck because i got the steels for free, so £200 for a set of pant wetting steels is a bargain :D but it gets expensive if your paying for wheels, paying for banding, the paying to get them painted, tyres etc etc

again, im lucky scrap yard perks :D

the work AC Fab do is top notch



dressed and pressure tested, mazin'

yeah i was gonna say ill get a set from the scrappy send them off and ill paint them myself.... then all i need to pay for is... scrappy prices,banding,paint cans, and tires

today, i fixed the blow on the exhaust. fitted the 15s properly, 6.5 rears 6s fronts, painted and fitted the nissan caps i ordered. removed the stoopid panel from the tailgate that vibrates like hell with any hint of bass, and also adjusted the tailgate striker :D





that looks fresh, what size steels are they and from what car ?

the ones in them pics are 15s ones on the front are from a clio/early megane the rear ones are from a shake ya ass megane. 6.5" rears and 6" fronts. i had to run clio fronts because the offset of the rear ones made them rub on the coilovers on the front, epic fail. they will bolt straight upto a K11 but there is a half mm gap around the spigot, just have to make sure you do the nuts up properly. you cant get spigot rings that skinny. 165/50/15 tyres on them

^15"s, fronts are 5.5 (or 6) from a clio and slightly higher offset than the rears which are6 (or 6.5) from a Megane). Stock renault CB is larger than 59.1 and PCD is as skymera said 4x100 so they go straight on.


Edit, Mr Bognor is Toooo slow.
Got those tyres too, thank hoop. That's some enthusiastic wrapping!
 
got the grinder out with a nice abrasive on the end and removed the VW logo from the caps, will get the heat gun on them now to bring back the black, or maby get some nissan logos on there.

...and banged on a new sticker :D



Also a good bit of news, had a text message from AC Fabrication, my wheels are finished, will be posted back to me monday :D
Where did you get the sticker from?? Its ace!!
