The old girl is here, now the work starts to put her back on the road. Drove from the transporter to my place, about 2 miles, running like s**t. Going to need advise and parts from you guys; i'm good with bodywork, but not that clued up re. mechanics. Will put up more pics after a clean up. Thanks for looking and replies, very much appreciated. Cheers Tony T

hey Tony
front end is no problem really .. you will have to watch the rear though ..
a mate of mine used 6.5x15 minilites with 195/50 tyres on his, its tight, but doesn't touch !!
Posted Image
they were a special order ..
I did get 6x13 cosmics under mine with a 28 axle (wider) and 205 tyres .. but had to flare the arches a tad ..

Just a wee V8, hopefully Rumbling again soon...
