    Yeh they were the first company i tried, sadly they couldn't help either. It looks like if i get them refurb'd it will have to be in one colour and with polished lips if i want

    thanks mate, yeh i dont think they are very common but thats mainly because they are old! they were discontinued ages ago

    specs will be - front 18x8 et 12 and rear 18x9 et 15 with the help a bit of spacing. Ideally at some point in the future i'd like to get some nice low offset wheels to cut out spacers all together and save some poundage but, im more than happy with these for the moment plus I have got the spacers already so its an easy fit.

    New Volks Wheels - Pic Heavy

    After a lot of grinding, sanding & polishing I've finished tidying up the wheels & I'm pretty happy with how they look so
    que the photo-fest

    Wheel lips freshly coated with lacquer

    & how they look fitted

    Looking really smart mate!

    You only need two tools in life - wd-40 and duct tape. If it doesn't move and should, use the wd-40. If it shouldn't move and does, use the duct tape.

    And if you can't fix it with a hammer,you've got an electrical problem!

    Thanks guys.

    Unfortunately the front can't go any lower Sam, I had it lower before but my splitter hit my driveway and the speed bump at my local sainburys

    na he can black the back behind the b piller, the back window & smoke the front sides then the back enhances the front making it look darker than it really is but as long as you get the fronts 70% clear/30% smoked.
    Hes a professional & fits it legally.
    Ive done mine legally if you see my pics / uploaded albums

    Coilover tlc

    I was at Project-D on Sunday, big big thanks to Andy for helping me to strip & clean, adjust & refit my HSD's

    They've been fitted for less than a 2 years but after 2 winters they were looking very shabby

    The before & after pictures says it all...






















    We've realised the springs really needed shot blasting & powder coating
    to perfect the job but thats been added to the list for another day now.
    Got to these in the nick of time though as a couple of the collars were badly seized &
    required some serious persuasion to loosen, anymore than a couple & it would have
    become soul destroying

    we used a small wire brush to clean the threads & then coated it with white grease.
