started on the wheels, but also found front shock exploded, think this is due to lowering springs on standard shocks. so looking for some mg zr front shocks.

For the love of god do not use those nuts.

They are cr@p cheap bits of alloy that need to hold your wheels on. Compare to normal nuts where you torque to 120nm these are like 70-80nm.

They should be banned under health and safety.

Omg it's the end of the world!!!

Did I say it was them actual nuts?

This place seems to be up there with Facebook.

Experts everywhere!!!

Just because I'm new on here doesn't mean I've not worked on vehicles before.

I've built hotrods, gassers etc for a long while.

I'm building a ratrod at the moment, this is just a daily to mess with.

Guess I'm lucky as I'm never offended or upset at what people do. Some people kick off if you use supermarket fuel!!! Sad people who need to get a life.

Well true, you didn't actually say it was those specific nuts in the photo....but then you said red nuts and showed the pic so its fair for another punter on here to make a comment

I think there's a slight difference between 'kick off' and discuss too....

Still, I've enjoyed reading your thread and what you're doing to the car.

Here's a question (and I know less than most on here so simply asking); why have you painted the wheels with the tyres on.....is it just for speed?
1995 416 SLi (Ostensibly BRG) - on the road
2000 Citroen Xantia Estate (silver) - on the road
2006 Ford Transit (white, what else) - on the road
1972 Mercedes 350 SL (red) - not on the road
1998 Audi Cabriolet (maroon) - not on the road

cheers guys,

got some mg zr front shocks and springs to replace concerto ones as due to real short lowering springs they have bottomed out and leaking like hell.
now looking for a rear pair of mg zs shocks and springs.

and maybe looking for a cheap set of mg alloys as one of current wheels has a slight buckle.
