I shudder to think how much they might owe you.
I have a tidy set of Bogan 13" mags with almost brand new tyres Hayden. They're only 5.5's though. 185/60/13.



already gone, 14'' rims raise the coupe too much so i sold said pricey rims with brand spanking new 195/45r14s to hayden for his coupe!!!

riverside riverges in 14x6.5j +9 all round. quite rare, took me months and months to find. but in the end the coupe was too high for my liking.

back to apaches for now, but won a pair of 13x7.5j -5 work equip 01s in 3 piece to match the pair due to arrive next week off the boat, 6.5j +4 fronts.



They look way better on my coupe anyway...................thanks Luke

boring updates.......

lost a wheel in rolleston. broke a bit of rear quarter. will not be repaired in time for nats.

new rear tyres fitted today thanks to chris at mag and turbo.

new 3.7 diffhead ready to go in to replace the 4.1 ratio head. brendan is a very helpful fellow.

cost me $100 per 300km in a recent nelson wedding adventure so need to lower revs savagely.
sits at 3700rpm @100km currently, hoping for about 3100rpm after diffswap.

booked in for speedo recalibration monday morning to avoid anymore goddamn speeding fines.

swapmeet netted me a MINT factory radio and surround. $10. on the thursday!!!!!!

also perked another a series 5spd box for peanuts out there.

bought new oil and filter this arvo to do a fluids swap before the mission up north.

bought more rims ex yahoo.jp drunk again.

life goes on!

New diff fitted, 3.7 dropped revs about 600rpm which is awesome.

And for possible the first time ever.......nothing went wrong working on this toy.
Oil change tomorrow sometime
