Went round to a few places yesterday, got a few COMPLETE refusals to fit them... giving my the whole 'dangerous' speech... pfff

Then went round to see my usual mechanic who does the work on my P12 Primera to ask if he knew anyone who would, and he'd just bought the tyre shop next door to his shop, and for his first job he's gonna try this! HA! Pretty challenging first job but he seemed keen.

Should be done by tonight. Will post pix if they are.

Fitted it to the car. Looks like a PERFECT fit to me.

Sorry that the shots are a bit dark. Hope you can make it out!

Love the rims, but I've never been a rubber band fan.

It was actually jacked up in those shots, its got no suspension in it, so i cant just sack it on its ass ir it wouldn't be very realistic. I'll get some better shots for yall tonight if i can get around the other car being worked on in the garage.

Now that I have the wheels sorted and i know what sorta clearances im working with, its time to weld the guards on properly. Then sort out the rest of the body fab work, then rear suspension, fuel cell/pumps setup, rebuild motor etc etc...

in all honesty dude these cars are shit but they have so much character, are fun and go fairly well when running right. we still play around with these things because they are a fun addictive little shitbox! :D - Ash

Some better shots, a little more light!

More low

Tried one of the rears on the front, keep in mind it will probably sit 10-20mm further in. I wound the coilover down another 20mm or so and the tyre clears the guard. JUST!

The tyre should tuck under with the correct rim on

2deg camber or so. It like maybe 2deg more...
