so i tried the wheels on last night they way they were already built up, think its safe to say ill have to rebuild them. going to face mount the front wheels and take them down to 8.5 from 10 which will get me 2.5 inches in. the rear sits something similar atm with the 10 on but the centres for the rears are flat backed so when face mounted and with the flat backed centres will get me 2 inches in and can pull the rest in with camber  8)

Split two wheels tonight which was enough to let me quickly bolt together what will be the set up for the front wheels. Really pleased with how it's going it sit. Just need to do a back one now and see how it goes

called down to PMG Autocare last night and i gave the car a wash to give them an opportunity to assess the paint on the car. its going to need a lot of work to get it up to standard. 8 years of tar, tree sap and fall out along with a life full of dealer washes and euro hand car wash has left the paint in a very sorry state. 
i applied a quick coat of 50 Cal detailings filler glaze to take the bad look of things and see me through till i get the car booked in for an enhancement.

Boring update. 
 
Painted all the callipers red then painted the non braking surfaces of the disks black. Just a quick going over to take the bad look off them for a while.

While I had the front wheels off I removed the front mud guards and cleaned behind them. Not sure what I think of it without them looks kinda weird. Maybe I'll get used to it.
