It's a good thing my phone is waterproof. I may have drooled on it while reading that project list.So much.
-A slide on hard side pop top cabin for this truck.
-I am currently building a full sheet CNC router from scratch.
-A w124 Merc wagon with an om606 and much hp.
-Probably a CNC milling machine at some point after the router.
That's just the current list....
Yea I know you can go bigger with the tb48, but this should be a huge improvement, and it's a bonus that the 15s still fit as I like the look of them. I was prepared to buy some 16s with the right offset if they didn't, so this will be cheaper.They are the smaller of the GU brakes. And pretty sure they can all have a 15” wheel.
It was the TB48 that had the slightly bigger disc/calliper.
Some 15s did fit though. Can’t remember which ones.

Thanks for that, I try to make it entertaining even if sometimes the subject matter is pretty dry.Amazing build, just found a spare hour to read from start to finish.
You have a talent for writing, too. Very enjoyable.
You know you're doing something good with a build when Ewan comments
Regarding rims for 33" tyres - 8" width is perfect, 9-10" increases the risk of rolling a bead off at low pressures.
I'd love to see it with 17" GU IV alloys painted satin black (that's what I run on my GQ).
10.5” wide tyres on anything bigger than a 7” would suck. And I don’t think they would sit right.Thanks for that, I try to make it entertaining even if sometimes the subject matter is pretty dry.
Regarding the rims, I didn't really want to get into stupidly wide ones, 8" seems about right but I reckon my 7" steels will do fine with a 10.5" 33.
I have a rather proletariat view on mechanical things, so 17" alloys are probably off the cards. This is also why there are no ECU's in the build, nor power windows, nor power anything really. I think that sometime around the mid 90's cars got more complicated than they really needed to be. I am not going to paint it either, it already has scratches and dents and that's how I like it.
Cheers, I had already scoured the site for info and found that. I intend to do a bit of testing to get it right, basically back it off until the rears lock, then bring it in till they don't.
Haha that is one thing I certainly don't miss about my homeland. Constantly having to get a WOF is a drag. Just feels like such a rort. Especially when you have to deal with a testing stationI also have a vin number, so time for a warrant check, cert, then compliance....
