  1. Happy 1 Anniversary lovelock!

  2. I have just been in the car and noticed that the air con vents are the same size as the holes... Would an extra three look mad? or genius?
  3. Interesting idea, I might see if I can find any metal plating or something. Wrap in in carbon fibre or something.
  4. I have removed these gauges: And have three holes, I really cba with buying and fitting and new dash. Anyone got any clever ideas to make the holes a bit less obvious / something better than a black bit of vinyl to cover over it?

    adjusting aftermarket camber bolts

    Do these allow a greater adjustment of the camber? My rear wheels have too much camber after coilovers, haven't tried adjusting camber using standard bolts though.
  7. Blame the tyre shop! Didn't use a deep socket. Off now, 10 drill bits later.

    (Nuts) Alloy versus Steel

    One last picture to add to this thread. This is one of the nuts I took off yesterday. Notice the bending...

    (Nuts) Alloy versus Steel

    Yep tuner nuts... Now have a nice set of tappered 'tuner' nuts from nuts4wheels but in steel.
  13. Not much so far! After a while of chiselling etc the aluminium becomes compact and harder. I have now bought a load of small drill bits and just going around the stud.

    (Nuts) Alloy versus Steel

    DO NOT GET ALLOY NUTS. They twist snap without them being over tightened let alone if someone gives them too much on a breaker bar. Example A: Im currently in the process of drilling this out. Not fun. As for steel damaging the wheels...? Are they make out of butter or what.
