Here are some additional pics of 'Gold Cup's' rear end for comparison. It's on 255/40 & std 17" 7.5J Teles with std suspension.

Hello Clive, Yeah they are 18" Blacklines. Its on Koni springs and the original camber was out a bit ( think the picture was taken before sorted ) but now running fat and wide lol

Have a good xmas and happy new year

Looks like it's got TS top wishbones which are 'pulling in' the top? (probably hasn't though as I sold it to him.)

V6 GTV was offered to me by the previous owner but I seem to remember he wanted around 3k+ for it....so I left it.

Nothing wrong with them, if they fit then all good. Your entire car looks like it needs to visit weight watchers

Hi Simon

Have you got Koni shocks with lowering springs, if so what ones?

The rear camber isn't adjustable....unless the top wishbone's outer swivel mounting bolt holes are elongated(filed) & then bolted tight further outwards.

Can you elaborate please?

Cheers
Clive

She's on standard shocks ( new about 2 years ago done 6k ish since ) had the car 4 wheel aligned and that sorted things out. The rear camber appears more than when the Teledials were fitted, just put the extra camber down to the blacklines and spacers.

Any thoughts ??

Can you measure in cms from the centre of the wheel up to the wheel arch please?

It looks to me as if it's lower than std, maybe down to weak springs due to age &/or the shocks have lost some umph(technical term).

Wheels, tyres & spacers shouldn't affect the camber as the overall wheel/tyre size is still approx the same, just stick out more at the same angle/camber.

Nice job, was it hard to and whats the finish like close up.

Do you think plastidip gives the wheels any protection against scratching? Ordering a set of blacklines this week for a white spider and I might use this stuff to keep them new looking.

Looks grat btw, is that the gun metal grey colour?

It wasn't too hard but I watched a lot of youtube videos on how to do it.

This is the finish close up but really its never going to be as perfect as a professional job but id say its 9/10ths. Also if you practised and practised Im sure you could make it 10/10ths

But for $100USD its a lot cheaper than a professional job of $600 or so ?
And also I can change colours anytime I like.

(And I think plastidip is much much cheaper in UK and USA so the whole job could cost $20 USD / GBP or so ?)

The plastidip will give you some protection against chips. But it is as thin as a rubber washing up glove. Imagine putting that all over your wheels - its is "some" protection. What it does do obviously is cover up previous scratches

The colour is 2 coats black and 2 coats Silver metalizer, not the "gunmetal" per se which is very flat in comparison. Heres the video
