I knew the inner wings at the back were bad and the wing mount section behind the door just fell apart....

So the plan from the start is to keep the outside looking as found, (crap) but on powder coated wheels a phone call later and it was cheaper to buy a new set from Roy!!!

So 125's fitted to the front, but i wanted something more chunky out the back 165 80 x 15's looked the part so went on...

now to make the car fit the wheel...

So as it was already rotten the old front wheel tub went west along with the bump stop mounts so the new tyres would fit, cut and then shaped for the 165....
