Can’t get the lock wheel nuts off as I don’t have the key.
Trying my luck for a key rather than smashing a 18mm socket over it

Anyone have one I could borrow?

Yes, how many lugs on each nut?
Heading to the Nats last year I left mine at home, and after the Southern guys having so much trouble with wheels coming loose or off I popped in to Super cheap in Taupo and had a look at their selection of locking nuts and found a set the same, which looked like your's, could be worth a look.

Cheers Vaughn, I ended up forcing a 17mm socket over it - Worked a treat.
Got the car home and had a look over. Need 3 new doors. Rust in boot, both c pillars and rear door/wheel sill.
Sadly now that I’ve got her here, I’ve got no money to spend. New baby on the way has put a full stop to a few things. Bit good base to start with!

Cheers :thumbsup:
Yeah it’s currently outside up on blocks so I can water blast under the guards. Will flush the breaks lines, put old biscuit wheels on it and then it will be going onto dry storage.

Car has been sitting in storage at my parents for the last 8years. Ange pushed me to get it down here before pēpē is born.
