Looks like very simple centres to get fresh ones water jetted, Craig?

EDIT: If they are Mini/Midget then they'll probably be 3/8" studs; man maths says an offset cut can be accommodated to take M12 studs (new countersink/hole will go as far out as the original, but comes in a bit further as it's bigger)?

Phil bought for inners, outers as swapsies currency mainly, but if centres are 4x100 i can either use them or polish and sell on for an exorbitant VeeDub scene tax price lol. Ideal for a pov spec 80s Polo with roof rack and furry dice...

Not convinced they are 4x100 yet, likely to be 101.6 mini midget, will soon see
you mean four inch? :shock: you just need to accept that some things are just 'old skool'

even if they are somat somat 'odd' to end up with?

we deal with 12" pipe that has a 19.05mm WT (with a tolerance of 1/32nd inch, so why quote the second decimal?) :?


SS1 1600 (AJZ ----), C30 (SK 57 ---)& 480 ( .. . EVU & . . . . CDC)
Regal 330 (VAV ---) now passed to another 'keen owner'
