I'm sure the flamer could manage it to Brecon and back!
Ok, so! It looks like we are systems go with the new car. Starting with getting the tyres fitted to my Turini’s today! So thought (in my excitement) I would post a before side shot. I’m really conscious the tyre fitter jacks the car up properly . As this car has arrow straight jack points and I’d like to preserve that as long as possible.

I’ll post the After shots later.
plans this weekend!
1) remove all the bloody stickers!
2) Swap binnacle ‘silver’ face for this

3)replace bonnet catch
4) start repair on rust bubbles under bonnet (I found recently very minor)
5) swap floor mats
6) fit my carbon washer blank....
reality is I will probably just take off the stickers, then follow a rabbit warren of problems and realise I bought another crap car and sell it for less than half I paid for it...
De sticker it and sort the calipers and it will look night and day already.
Cracking base car for a project mate and agree 100% mileage on these is no reflection of conditon. Mines just about to clip 129k and ive seen some right sheds with less than half that number.
Also agree silver, lowered on anthracite wheels looks absolutely stunning.
Will be following with interest, best of luck
Unless you go Ti then all the studs are motorsport items and just high grade steel. All of them will corrode I’m afraid. Giving them a liberal wipe of ACF50 will certainly starve off any corrosion for a good while.That’s great advice thanks @frayz I was going to go pure hubcentric to be honest, should have been clearer! with a pure stub axle kit on the rear. But I’ll take on board your comments and leave as is for now. I don’t want to ruin what is a superb handling car. Will see how I feel about how it looks over the coming days as I start to put my touch on it. I have plenty to be getting on with! I’d like to do a stud conversion at some point as well. But until that point I need some new wheel it’s now I have sling the crappy Renault lockers. Any recommendations on go to brands that won’t rust whilst sat in the garage?
Cheers mate, like I say considering them is some way down the line now. Just think it would look a little better slightly spaced. But I’m not overly precious and would take advice from chaps like yourself.
That’s sealed it then! If the young guns are at it, at near 40 years of age I’m going spacerless! I don’t need to impress young lads... and chicks won’t be turned off by the stance...the old bloke in a shitty old Renault would be enough to do that.They’re not expensive so feel free to try them. You can always sell them on as the youngsters are always up for a bit of style over substance.

Really easy mate. I paid £10 delivered for a set of 1.2 clocks. It’s a 5 minute job once you have the dash top out! Which of you have never done before is worth doing as it’s normally filthy behind there!Coming along nicely mate. Cluster surround’s on my list - easy enough job?
I actually replaced the dash top when I first got the car so I’ll find the cluster nowReally easy mate. I paid £10 delivered for a set of 1.2 clocks. It’s a 5 minute job once you have the dash top out! Which of you have never done before is worth doing as it’s normally filthy behind there!

Yeah when! My list of must dos grows ever longer. Pleasure to meet you too and yes a drive out is a must!Sorry Dom I should’ve mentioned in my post. I had the pleasure of meeting you and your lad! Actually nice to have someone to talk old cars with semi localish. I have met only a few now! Need to get a plan together for a Breacon drive out at some point. When our cars are working!
