Default Follow up to BMW suspension query

I've decided to go with the BMW option. As a final check can somebody please measure the following:
Outside of Sierra brake drum cover to opposite side ( i.e. width of rear wheel inside faces)
The dimensions of the Sierra diff to make sure that the BM item will fit into the chassis without alteration.
Again thanks for any assistance.
Finally anybody got contact with "Rugby builder" who left a message for me in June which due to me not using the forum I missed and hes not replied to my grovelling apology?

I know a guy from Rugby who is building a BMW based Roadster. I had his building board off him recently. He is a very nice guy and I have his phone number. If you PM me I will give it to you.

I am also in Rugby so it is nice to see yet another local builder

Default Rugby BMW build

Hi thanks for your response, I presume you mean Graeme Webb who I've been trying to contact as he left a message for me in June but as I hadn't started my build I wasn't watching the forum. Any phone numbers for yourself or Graeme would be appreciated as it would be good to have a sounding board, Neil.
