Dude do you have any tech docs on your ea 5 speed conversion? monty's and fairlanes dont come with manual?


Theres a great one already on this site.....

Converting to manual would be the best thing you could do for the car. But make sure the box is in great nick or has been rebuilt before fitting, and get a decent clutch.

Thats way you wont have to spend money twice over

Ive got a set of the common AMG Quakes in 18's on mine..... pics here.... needs further dumpage though

I also have these but in 17"s,
Got them Second hand for $1400 with 98% Yokies,
I must say, i've got other rims with 90% tred on them Kumos, yet these yokies are only 50%, when im in the wet i can still kick out with the kumos, but with the yokies i find it very hard to do sooo..
get the AMG's Quakes, they come up Mint when washed

Not the best photo of the wheels, but they look alright (espcially for 17"s)
But i like the photo:)

personally i reckon the spokes look like little toothpicks, but if you like them then make sure you post a pic when you get them!!
