71 GTE SE5A my rolling restoration and now Tdi conversion

bit more progress :) i'm using an RX8 gearbox coupled to the VW engine, I can't find an adapter plate made for this so i've got to make my own.

fitting 15x8 wheels ET0

i'll have EPAS one day - got all the parts to fit it, i plan to do it once it's off the road for the engine swap

fitting 15x8 wheels ET0

fitting 15x8 wheels ET0

hi, if i fit a set of 15"x8" ET0 wheels to my se5a will they need spacers on the front? and will they still sit under the arches?
and if they need spacers how thick will i need?

and what about the back what's the issue there? do they go straight on and fit under the arches?


cheers :D

do you not think it strange that it sold for £370 with a couple of different bidders but was then immediately relisted ...... :shock:
he might be bidding it up himself - thinking its worth more than it is

I can't see the clocks with the small wheel though
ah yeah there is that, i was thinking i could swap them over so you'd be able to see the low mph's and high rpm's
when i swap the engine i'll probably need a gps speedo anyway and different rev counter

I have MGF power steering .you will need it with the smaller wheel. i'm surprised with the pas you didn't stick with the small wheel, i really like it much better over the original, but i have to keep it...
