Yes I've got Red9 which is standard width. I have ET30 Porsch space savers and the wheels sit nicely. The guy that has the 4 inch narrow has ended up putting 1 inch spacers either side as couldn't turn corners. There is a guy that has made it work with 4 inch narrowed beam but he has zero offset wheels.No I'm basing it on my bug that runs a 4" narrowed. I do get a slight rub on full lock but only when I'm parking etc. not while driving. I've seen some that are so tucked they must be at least 4" but if I do run into trouble I can always space them.
Is that a red9design beam you're using?
Love your plan to re-use sofa leather. Chuck us some pics when you get them back I'd love to see that.Good luck with this. I am on a similar path, albeit taking me a while to get it progressing and it will be a milder version, warm 1600 running baby Dells. Haven't ordered the body yet, need to add some more pennies to the piggy bank. Nice seats, I am going with some Mk1 MX-5 seats, should be going in to be trimmed in the next few weeks with some leather I salvaged from our old sofas - hoping for a nice worn look. Collecting as you go is a good idea and grabbing bits as and when they appear (and cash allows) has been recommended by other builders, even if you are not fitting those parts for a while. Things like door window frames can be spendy so grab the bargains when you can.
Looking forward to following your progress. All the best!
Congratulations mate, that's brilliant news.Quick update. Gary from the clinic has been in touch to say it'll be ready in about 2 weeks. So I need to organise collection and get it home. Build is going to be a challenge with it being winter and I've taken on some properties to renovate and I'm going to be a dad in May too! So please no breath holding while this progresses
