    Yes they are Ronal LS your size suggestion is also correct.

    I quite like the wheels and think they suit it but thanks for being honest. I like when people are like that I did consider sone schmitds th lines with black centres. I might still get some

    Hi Everyone,

    Bit of an update after a busy weekend... I spent the whole of saturday cleaning the car all over.

    The first thing i did was pop to the local car spares shop and picked up a can of Reflex Silver to cover most of the curb marks on the wheels. this is just a quick fix to make them look a bit better. im going to challenge myself and have a go at sorting them properly.

    started masking off:



    bit of paint:



    End result:



    i started with the inside and the door shuts. These were really grubby around the nuts and joints as i could never get to them. I decided to try harder using Poorboys APC and a detailing brush followed with a wipe over with a microfibre. they came out really good:



    I then took the seats out as the carpets and seats needed a good clean. My dad used to own his own carpet cleaning business so has all the chemicals and knows how to do it so i got on the case with him. i havnt got any 'after' pics but this was before:




    I also did a bit more to the boot in terms of covering the tank, unfortunately the silver vinyl i ordered didnt come in time so just kept the tank white for now. I will get the silver stuff this week hopefully



    Roo also payed me a visit with the finaly part of the install:



    Also thought id show you my paddle valves as i havnt really posted anything about them. they look nice and factory




    Let there be light:



    Thats all for now

    Last night my plans were to sort the new doorcards out that i got. i then realised i got the wrong ones and they dont have the holes for electric windows. not a big issue tho as i will start cutting them out tonight

    so i had to find something else to do... paint the end cap filter on my compressor



    i then dropped it like a muppet when i was drying it...



    Filter back in



    All done after more paint on the top...



    All done and in the car

    You should get more aggresive fitment , because of air.

    Been cleaning and polishing at work and after work... starting to get arm ache lol...

    also been busy on the tank with Blaine tonight and managed to get the wrap on





    you can see from the wheels underneith what they were like before so not done too bad...





    centre caps after a few hours at work:



    wheels tried on the car sit really nicely and once they are a little wider they will be perfect!



    Thanks

    Hi everyone, not been on here for a while but iv made a few changes. Got some BBS RM's.
    They are currently being painted and will be built up in the next few days.
    Instead of adding loads of pics i will just add a before and after once they are done

    Hi Everyone... Its been a long time since iv been on here. Sorry. I have made a few changes since i was on last.

    As usual i wont bore you and i will let the pics do the talking.

    Firstly was a bit of bodywork











    polished manifold cover



    Wheels... Had them painted Chevrolet Moroccan Blue. 1.5 inch dishes polished up (might go for 2 inch on rears to make them 8j)













    Next on the list... More bodywork over at ultimate car care... matt has done an amazing job so far!
    chassis notch, custom rear mounts for the bags to go a bit lower on the rear, roll the arches and get 10mm spacers on. Few more details under the bonet including a bit of blue. Nothing too wild... just trying to keep it clean.

    all feedback welcome. Thanks

    Nice work, liking the rm's. they suit it alot more.
    Did you install the air yourself?
