    Was offered these at an absolute steal earlier so i made the wee trip down to collect
    came off an Evo 6 on wednesday as the fella wanted yellow calipers, so the fella who done the swap had these an had no use for them

    i will easily make use for them for my 4 as brakes are terrible

    So the Rota's were to big
    i had 215-35-18 bought an fitted them as i knew they fit easily, had 2 old 225-40-18 tyres sitting here so put them on to see if they didn rub or cause problems, but they did, even the 215-35 rubbed so that was that, 8.5's were to big
    [​IMG]

    after mot, front windows back to a light tint now

    So Rota's had to go and bought another set of rota's last night
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    These sit nice an are 7.5" wide i think, not marked anywere on the rims but not sticking out past the arch like the GTR's were

    An finally got my 3 centre gauges fitted an working
    [​IMG]

    Leaves the 2 pillar gauges to get set right and fit the new turbo timer, headunit extra's that i said i'd leave until i was doing the shirt shift gear linkage

    It took me about 20 minutes to fully finish. But I had to get a new gear knob as the IV is a deep heavy brute of a gear knob. So I bought a tegiwa gear knob from ebay

    Great write up indeed!

    It's nice to see members tinkering away on their own steam.

    I'm not a big fan of the IV's, everyone knows that, that said, yours is probably one of the best I've seen to date, no exaggeration.
