      no not absolutely sure, as the rims are almost 30 years old and the wheelnuts are just some alloy "KKR" branded cheap china things. But they worked fine on my previous wheels which were buddyclubs so chances are the seat style ought to be the same, and it's only the one wheel nut which keeps coming loose. There are 3 possible scenarios I can think of atm.

      1. New stud isnt pulled in 100%
      2. Wheelnut has a fucked seat
      3. Wheel itself has a fucked seat

      Will pull the wheel off tonight and investigate

        Well, the knock turned out to be the exhaust! The bolts holding up the right rear hanger seem to have disappeared at some point during the build lol, bolted it all back up and she is all sweet :D Took it for a decent test run last night, OMG THE BRAKES ARE RIDICULOUSLY GOOD!! Now I just need the power to go with them

          My exhaust did exactly the same thing last year. Made a fairly ominous sound before I worked out what it was!

            Yeah so annoying. I was ripping my hair out wondering wtf it could be, went under the car to shake the swaybar and see if it was the source of the noise, and noticed the exhaust was wobbling around instead! haha, at least it wasnt anything more serious i guess...

              Those wheels suit it down to the ground. Just looks perfect.

                  Wow, lots of history with this car. Love the roof mount intercooler idea. New engine is going to be killer.

                    Bring on the engine build hey.... yeah well I have almost everything now, just head gasket and timing belt to go. So i wondered how I was going costs wise







                    I really shouldn't have kept a running tab. I stopped counting on the actual car a long time ago, but was curious to see how much the engine was costing. Fuck it, it's only a house deposit right? :S

                          Your only mistake was adding everything up.

                                I had to lend my air flow meter out 2 weeks ago and I still haven't got it back, so yesterday I walked into the garage, tripped over and did this...






                                Oops, guess I won't need that air flow meter anymore, car was up and running again in just over 5 hours (including finding a base map, finding and printing off wiring diagrams/ecu pinouts etc), guess all that previous practice has paid off

                                Now to go buy some trumpets and enjoy some n/a scream till the 9A is built :D
