Hi guys

Hope you all had a great xmas and new year , thanks for all of the ideas ref flaring wheel arches on my last thread apologies i didnt get chance to update it.

After getting my daily driver mot yesterday it turns out that the midget would pass with an advisory as is so thats good but i will probably roll the arches at the top to make look better.

I have finally managed to take some pics of progress , next job is to order the fibreglass flip front and make the necessary amendments to axle so its sits central in the rear arch

1st pic JLH brake kit, lovely well made piece of kit

That is simply superb. Is there any intention of producing a rough how-to guide?

Andy ....

Dont use the JHL kit on the car

...frame it and place it on an honerable wall of your home or office for all to admire..that is way to nice to to be hidden away snd just get dirty and worn out...haha

But that is nice looking forward to reading your personal reviews the pros and the cons of the jhl kit
