Glad they've put a smile on yer face.. :D

Only minor issues for you and all can be rectified. SP obviously isn't destined to receive shiny paintwork. Matt Black is her chosen colour.

Also decided Pick Up's diff is going to receive an upgrade and gears changed accordingly. Got to keep PU in the rev range, so no slacking.... ;)

OK then Peeps,

From the photos on page 13. You'll notice a final photo of the JBW Minilite wheels fitted to this PU.

Th PU gets used on Track Days and the odd Hillclimb so I'm considering what Lighter and stylish wheels are out there but, you good people may have some recommendations so if so please add your comments and lets see what it reveals.

Evening Dunk,

The Classic Billet 46 was actually the wheel I originally wanted to fit to PU but cost was a little prohibitive..!!!
Still like them very much and they may yet be a final choice but do want Lightweight. I do have some Citroen C5 Alloy's but at only 6" wide, they don't fill the arches at the rear.

Nice wheels, my mate has a custom set (motor sport I think) on his VW caddy - his second set in actual fact as he re did the suspension and wanted more of the stanced look when dropped on his air ride system - not cheap though.
