Hi

I’m gonna replaced all the front end like shocks, steering rack, wishbones etc. I’m currently swapping out the drums for discs. And I’m going to do the back eventually. Replacing the exhaust. Getting new tyres all round. Sand Blasting the wheels and powder coating them. And much more.

Today I’ve just replaced spark plugs, battery, filters all round and gave it a good clean.

I’m tryna find some wheel spacers but I’m struggling to find ones which will fit my stock wheels.

 The car is looking good 8). Saw it advertised and was tempted myself. Make sure you post loads of photos of the progress.

 What sort of wheel spacers are you after? I mean width wise.

Yea that’s the one, didn’t even bother going having a look because I was that desperate for one! Big risk but it paid off because I’m happy now. I will do! It’s just gone in for a full service today. Im after 20mm spacers but I’m not good with sizes etc. I’ve ordered some universal 4x98 ones and hope they fit!

Anyone know the paint code for my cream 126? I’ve checked the plate under the boot lid and it’s faded away. I’ve looked all over the internet but haven’t had any luck.
