Have a good day on yours today James mate! Come Wednesday/Thursday i’m hoping my rear drive gear and frame will be bolted up and i’m then going to have a go at making a 1.5 or 2mm gauge 304 stainless fuel tank with my mate who has a sheet bender/folder. Something along these lines ... Keep me posted buddyImage

Yes Ron, and thankfully I have a lot of time now and have some great support from talented friends/forum members that are pivotal to ideas and making things happen!

For anyone that wants a set of these OEMS wheels I can most certainly recommend Ron @RKDesigns for his superb service with the wheels! Ordered them and they were outside my house in 3 days ... from the bloody Netherlands!!!

Top guy and very reasonable prices for us on this fine forum with many things Caddy! In fact it was Ron who did this staggered 10”/8.5” wheel set first and I just had to have that look. So thanks Ron

Ye saw that mate and tidy job too. Love the tear coilover set up. Which ones are those J? Look quality buddy.

I’m thinking of using a spray on sound deadener on my inner arches that you spray a schutz gun. I took my inner wheel arches off a while back to squeeze my 10” rims into the rear arch so don’t think i have the room still to refit them despite the extra room that i now have.
