I used the mx5 daisy alloys and painted them black. They are quite light wheels and basically a copy of minilites

Thanks for the info, I'm using mk2 1.6 brakes front and rear. 250ish mm diameter I believe.

Can you submit a car for an ova with an lsd that prohibits individual wheels brake tests?

Will that diff be damaged if spinning one rear wheel on a brake tester whilst the other is stationary?

I'm looking at the bargain Ashcroft lad but they say it's needs the accelerometer test otherwise it'll be damaged. I know that's fine with an mot test but wil Mr Iva accept that?

Chassis painted (badly) floor on and many parts cleaned via electrolysis and wire wheel.







Boxes of goodies!



I'm aiming to get the arms, uprights, calipers, discs and wheels on then finish the pedal box. I can then route the brake and fuel lines. Then it's engine and exhaust time. At least that's the order I'm aiming for.

Does anyone have a link to some 3 way brake/fuel pipe clips?

Thank you for the link.

I managed to get some 13" Team Dynamics the same as CTW's for a bargain price too. Mine are in Anthracite, I'm rather chuffed with those!

Can anyone recommend an alternative to Toyo R888's that isn't a track tyre and will come in 185/60/13 and 205/60/13?

By this I mean is cheaper but not junk.

I went with Yoko A021-R from Polley motorsports. 185/70/13. The 185/60/13s were £75+vat and the /70/ were £50+vat so worth the compromise for me.

They dont have them on their website any more but the page is still there so the may still do them.

Cheers
Stot
