Although this 95 is incredibly clean and we want it to stay this way, Jim has been underneath it, scrubbing, cleaning because he bought a Rust Buster Epoxy Kit in Silver Aluminium which is not far off

More pictures 🙂.

In my new 95 fresh import I have these facelift window switches, looks like the owner in Japan has converted them 😀.

Interesting, didn't know they updated these switches. On another note, you've got to replace those faded door handles with the metal Terrano II handles - will give a premium solid feel and finish it off nicely.

Thank you, but I used to sell those handles to other members 😀.

Those you see are the original import's cards, I have some alcantara ones to be migrated in from my 94, of course the chrome handles as well, all with Jim.

Ah ha, something else I didn’t know. Sounds like a solid plan .

The last post I dealt with the Akebono brakes, for these I needed 18 inch wheels so I got some. Concave 'A' fitment and the type of rim I got, all round caused an issue on the fronts with calliper clearance, basically the wheels would not go over or it was far too tight or close.

Anyway, Jim solved this by fitting CZP brackets instead of what I had the Z1 ones which shifted the calliper further inside by about 5mm.

So with 62mm long extended studs and a 10mm hubcentric spacer, 15mm was too much poke fyi, we finally have got there.

The wheels are 18 inch Work Emotion CR2P's, Gunmetal centres with polished lip, fitted with Michelin Pilot Sport 4's all round.

Rears are bolt on +32, fronts are the same offset but with a 10mm spacer making them +22.

This picture just shows the rear fitment, Jim's wheel is on the front when this was taken a week or so back.

And where we are today, on its new wheels, still all a work in progress but we're getting there.

Fronts are 8.5J, Rears are 9.5j.

Tyres are 245/35/18 and 275/35/18.

Nice wheels Andy. How did you deal with the disc offset after moving the caliper by 5mm?

You can see here how much got shifted from the red test fitted CZP bracket to the Z1 one, quite considerable and made all the difference.

UPDATE :- After a long cv19 blamed delay, I am informed my new Work wheels are in the country.

This post brings things up to present day, I have chosen this shape of quad exits and slash cut, I have also stressed the length must be to my liking also, the reason for the side on trial fit pic.

I really like the look and style of those Andy - great choice....!! 

I agree with your decision to keep the length just inside the bumper, I'm not a fan of the tailpipes protruding too far out either. That's the kind of thing I'd pick too....😁

Little engine bay glimpse and wheel alignment.............

Front bumper needs spraying, that moustache debate again, I guess I'll go with whatever, I know the colour it needs to be btw, 95 cars didn't tend to have it though.

Nice tube welding! Just how quiet is that system?

I have not heard it or driven it, only can go off what Jim says and he likes, bit more refined than the old 2.5 inch Alunox system, and that was the remit.

Jim is close to driving the car apparently, might get a video soon perhaps, especially if he reads this !!
