 you need to upgrade your servo to a 2.9 mate.

Other than that mate looking good, mine started off as an azura base too.

THEN

I vote the front ones    - not sure about 5 spokes...they look too 90s.

Use the front multispoke for the road, they're much prettier and suit it well. The rears look like MO copies. Paint them black to pretend they're real. Would do ok for track days but they are a bit dated looking.

Car looks really good.

Looks great mate and i could be planning one of these as my next project when i finish my 24v capri, always loved the sapphires and have had a couple of YB cossie one's and fancy building a 24v one now as you can build a seriously nice car for very little money.  

Like your number plates, what style font are they do you know as would like a set with the similar font.

I am doing a similar job on my Sapphire but going much further with it and trying to make it stand out from the crowd a lot more.

Electro plating cost 30.00 for biscuit tin full

Rusty items not a problem but painted items need to be stripped back before plating

Looks tidy! Sweet looking floormats you got there, where did you get those?

Why those hideous spring thingies covering your braided hoses?
