Had a bit of a play with some friends wheels to see how they look.

1) BBS LM 18"


By adinl at 2012-04-06

By adinl at 2012-04-06

2) BBS RS 17"

I prefer the 17" look as well as RS rather then LM's.
I am also going to keep an eye on ebay on some Style 5's, which are like RS's but without stepped lip. for now i have ordered some bits to freshen up the engine as well as given my OEM seats to be retrimmed in leather.

then plan is to put the dogleg box in and 3.7 diff ratio

Without a question RS - Old school wheels for a classic!

Rs's for sure. Definitely not 18"s whatever you decide on.

guys been doing some work to the old girl. i figure any maintenance work done to this model will only increase the value of the car, as well as make me get to know her better
basically plan is to swap the dogleg and new diff, then refresh engine (cosmetic mainly), all new bushes, paint chassis... here s the progress :

getting her ready




on its way out


done


rear end



front


chassis before



after



engine


50/50 manifold


plan is to finish her in the next 2 weeks (if all goes well)

big thanks to Bucko and Nik for their help.
