Re: New Wheels

Like Wild Bill, I have got a period set of old cosmics, except they are rare 15" x 7".so I have shod them with 205 x 60 tyres. They look great (Came off an old MGB - So bear them in mind as well when selecting a size) They are very tight at the back though and could probably do with a 195 tyre size ...

Re: SAH rocker cover

They are also good for anyone who wants to put a bling rocker cover on their Spit6/GT6 as there can be bonnet clearance issues sometimes if you use the more square TR6/2500 alloy rocker cover...

Re: clutch slave cylinder thread size...
