Hi JB,
  It's been like forever since I was last on here.... if you have children you know young babies, toddlers and school kids all take the most part of life at the moment. But it's great to see how much work you have done.... excellent !!! Grin

It makes me want to get my FE sorted... I sure need the motivation, help and focus to get mine on the road... ironically there's not a huge amount of work left to do.... maybe get back to going to my QLD FE/FC Club meetings and re-spark the passion... I seen a pink and white FC driving around again, pulled up next to it and really felt both hubby and wife were living their FC dream... it did start a spark in me... than to see how far you have come JB is just fantastic.... you must be smiling from ear to ear...

good no excellent work JB

Waited for the wheels to turn up, wrong offsets...
Rears need to come out by 25 on rear and in by 20 on the front.

Lucky not my fault so new ones have to be ordered.

Lol, don't think 17x10's will go on the front.
Changed the front tyre to a 205/50/17... Looks like it will work. But gives a 23mm difference to the rear wheel... Hoping it won't trigger the ABS with the mismatch.

Looking real good JB, the rims set the ute off just right. I bet you are looking forward to getting it on the road and having some fun.

Thanks Jim,

Really happy with the look of the rims... They just don't fit correctly.





As you can see in these pics, the front wheels need to sit inside the guard more, and the rear have 25mm spacers on them to sit nearly correctly.
The pictures are as close as I have been to them as well so am relying on my brother for the correct advice... He better be right lol!!
We are thinking moving the fronts by 12mm in, and changing the rear by 21mm to give adequate clearance all round.

Looking great JB, by the looks of it you may even make it to the 2016 QLD Nationals with a car.

Thanks Jim, it's what I am working hard to get to, however it will all boil down to roster gods as we are not allowed leave over the busy school holidays. But even if I'm not there I am hoping the car and my brother will be. So it may yet be a Prius from the airport!
