So, in a nut-shell:
How did you do it?
- Banded 13" steels
- Low profile 13" tyres
- Custom (adjustable height) Gaz coilovers front and back with custom tiny length spring
- Camber spacers (home-made from aluminium) for the lower front wishbones (idea courtesy of Steve A from the Triumph world)
- Shortened upper front wishbones
- Cut-away inner front arches for tyre clearance
- Rear leaf spring de-cambered by 3 and 3/4" rear leaf spring
- Re-drilled rear up-rights
- They are the wider 5.5" 16 oval hole Dunlop wheels that sometimes come on GT6s. (Some people say the 5.5" were optional extras, and some say that they weren't). The 5.5" have a nice bit of rim, and by having them banded on the inner of the rims, it gives that stepped rim look, and also saves a bit of weight over having the band on the outer rim.
- It will be the white based pastelly '60's looking yellow you see on the rear and front wing. I've tried a few yellows and not being a yellow fan, this is the one that goes really nicely with the black centred wheels with silver rim and red tyre lettering.
I love grey, but as the GT6 is only marginally bigger than an MG Midget, it needs to be a noticeable colour so that it is noticeable on motorways.
Thanks all for your comments, more photos and details to come.
