    Hehe, cool man! Looking forward to seeing it in action.
    There are only two products required to make the universe work properly: Duct tape and WD40. 


    If it moves (and it shouldn't): duct tape. 
If it doesn’t move (and it should): WD40.

    Everything else is just stuff.

    After a few weekends we got the install all finished up.

    Had a few issues sealing the front struts,but a £30 bottle of loctite from the US sorted that out.

    New wheels were chosen the day i ordered the air,the csl reps just wouldn't have worked with the overall look i wanted.

    Picked these bad boys up,again in BMW fitment for that deep rear wheel.



    Once i had worked out the offsets i realised that they were going to poke far too much on the rear,something had to be done,spoke to a few people and the best option was to shave some off the back of the wheel.When i took them down to the machine shop,it was pointed out that due to the spoke design these wheels would not fit onto the lathe(not good).After a bit of chin scratching,the machinist suggested taking my adaptors down to 13mm and making a pocket in the back of the wheels to to allow room for the bolt holding the spacer to the car,basically if we shaved any off the bolt head it could snap when torqued up.


    Once that was all sorted,i got the wheels out on a sunny day and they were so shiney that they almost looked chrome,not a look i wanted at all.A quick scan through a colour chart and my mind was soon made up,ral 7035 was the winner,topped off with a white pearl and satin lacquer.
