Not sure what your intentions are with the wheels and tyres are Darren but as you’ve seen mentioned many times on here, anything over 18.5mm will make it undriveable and perhaps even dangerous! :swerve: :lol:

Are you going to try and keep some of the original patina or go for a full on Resto Mod?

Either way, looking forward to more pics.

Well if your going slammed, then maybe go the whole rat look.... Rusty patina, bling wheels, minimum rubber, leaving you ...not much to do really! Just a bit of leather upholstery...jobs a goodun.. :dance:

You'll have to modify it to get the wheels inside the arches, or you'll get pulled. Even if the police think you're a "model" citizen.
