Yeah! The most solid part of the whole car are the four bits keeping the floor off the tarmac. Plan to sort it eventually given enough time/money/sanity.

Nah i really like the look it all goes with the bumpers strips & front, just needs slamming 60mm.

It looks better in the metal, havent got the money tp spend on a repaint the green looks better in person aswell.
nutty but nice

doive, i went up to birmingham .. (well outside west bromich albion football stand to be exactly) to pick up 5 rostyle wheels off a nice chap from walsall.

im having them proffesionally chromed in the next week or two, and my friend and i are currently taking it back and sorting all the rust and priming it ready for a full respray in henna red again. inside and out. (he's a panel beater and sprayer) getting extremely excited now by just looking at that picture! they really do suit the saloon.

Jammy sod, I wish I had a mate to sort my car for me. Believe it or not I did those wheels with some Nitromors and two tins of Hammerite. Finish is as good as I had hoped for, obviously not perfect but very presentable (I'm a bit of a perfectionist). When your car is resprayed back to good as new she will look stunning with a set of rostyles on. Not sure why the saloon looks better than the hatch? Although I have always liked Vivas with rostyles on. Must be a saloon thing.
