In topic "Spacers..........."
Before and after pics with 15mm spacers fitted to the rears................



On Fuch wheels its not so cut n dry

On 7" the smallest "bolt on spacer" you can use is about 25mm which is too big I think. 15 or 18mm looks right, but you would need to knock out the studs, replace with longer ones then use a "shim" its a bit of a PITA
9mm shims with standard studs? 340 bhp? NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO please say no Pete.....
On 8" you may be able to fit 15mm or 18mm, you would need to measure as I cant be sure of 8" (7" I know its 24mm and 9" I know will take a 15mm)

Dont be frightened to have a DIY go at caliper painting. I had great results with Auto K caliper paint, high temp laquer and about 6 hours work (in total) Done on the car but some people have quoted £150 a corner to paint!!!!


Wicked stuff...£10 a tin................decals added then 4 or 5 coats of high temp laquer over the top...........simples
