QuickSilver - The bolt pattern is 112.5 x 5 same as all the rest.

Dan - Loving the colour on the roof, very period looking, but if it was any colour other than white you may have had some haters out there.

Thanks for the comments ppl.

As for rim fitment - 5x112 and 40 offset will allow you to run upto 8 inch wide. If u lower the front you'll need to reshape the swaybar. Problem is with the front hubs. They stick out alot! If u look at the factory hub caps or bundtz they both allow for this in their design. I cop alot of slack for my rim choice but of the limited 19 inch wheels that would fit over the hub these were by far the best choice.

You can also smack the dome shaped end of the hub with a rubber mallet which gives you around 5mm extra clearance and doesn't effect the car mechanically.

Yer for sure we should take them out. Probably going back to hubcaps soon so they'll look good together. Are u from Sydney? What area?

I have the exact car. Waiting for the head from the machine shop. Where did you get your springs from? Or are they just cut? And how much is it lowered? Thanks
