Managed to eventually get my 235's fitted to the rims I had lying around...




Had to trim a tiny bit off rear of front arch. It is still a close fit, but am comfortable that it won't be an issue. It looks like it will catch in the pic, but the angle is deceiving:

Thanks dude, pretty happy with them too!

Wheels come from a Daihatsu Fourtrak, took a wire brush to them thinking I'd prep them for primer and paint, but thought the raw aluminium looks so good I'm just gonna leave as is.

I’ve been on a 350 mike round trip to pick up some fourtrak wheels I bought on eBay, holding off on fitting them until I decide on a tyre size. Not bad for 75 plus fuel though :)

The sun came out and i've finally managed to replace the gear box oil.
Using a Halfrauds traders card i saved £5.20 on 2ltrs of gear oil.
l immediately noticed a difference, no more fighting to get 1st and reverse.

Washed the car and cut 3 lawns.

Today?
made a mess:blush:
Changed engine oil and filters. Then knocked funnel over spilling oil on garage floor
Changed rear diff oil and struggled getting filler plug to go back in then realised I had drain plug in hand and the filler plug was in drain point.
Quick swap and managed to get oil on drive doing so.
Then went to do front diff but cant budge filler plug. Was only done 12 months ago so I must have over tightened it, so now its rounded off.
Gave up trying after a couple of hours.
Was going to do gearbox oil as well but had enough at this point.:angry:

Forgot to pick up my oil drain pan once finished replacing gearbox oil last weekend. Ended up driving over it and having to dig up part of my gravel drive to get rid of the oily bits! But I think yours takes the cake!

I refitted one of the rear seats but had to attach the seatbelt to the seat bracket and bolt it there as the seatbelt hole didn’t want to keep hold of the bolt...realised I have a few bolts missing from the other seat so didn’t bother with that then went on to lunricating the front seats so they now move without needing a winch to shift them. Finally was going to pre lube the exhaust bolts but it seems some clever sausage has decided the exhaust flanges were pointless and just welded it together:(
