hehe, yeah I just love this thing as a nice cheap comfy daily, yeah xb's were heaps nicer, but these aren't to bad.
Hehe, still got the green eb? knowfords.

I think I've lined up a door tomorrow cheap, supposedly a bit of rust, but easier to fix than the current damage.

Gave her a cut and polish and f**k it did make a difference that's for sure.
Anyway few thing have happened finally got a pair of replacement shocks, literally brand new KYB shocks at the wreckers.
Found my suspension was in far from wonderful condition, the bottom of the shock was worn half through so it slipped nicely through the gap worn through on the lower bracket.
Image

also through lowered springs in the front to level it out due to the sagged rear springs well less than 12 hours pulled the exhuast off.
Image
Image
also got a flat so through a 12 slotter on thinking might whack a set on to see how the look afterall I do wheels and tyres for a living so can chop and change as I please, p.s. if anybodies need tyres or wheels p.m. me.
Image
lastly a quick shot of it with a 19" koya under the a** for s**t and giggles.

I agree, go for a set of 12-slotters with a big tyre on the rear. You should be a ble to get a 265 under there with the right offset and maybe a bit of bashing.... :twisted:

The old wagon is looking good, you've done well.
Cheers.

eeekk slight spanner in the 12 slotted works, I had a pair of 245's on it well that let go yesterday the bands went bang so it's now an oval tyre causes a slight boneshaker vibration so can only get 235 about cheap enough and easily. Tossing up between going 7 or 8" wide stockers, meh who knws decision decisions.

on another note a nice set of koya 18's in pre au offset came in with a decent amount of dish so I'm gonna snaffle those away I reckon they wont look to bad on it, just got to wait for some rubber to come through.
May aswell when you work your a** off wheels and tyres all day.
keep my options open.
p.s. the tyre on there only just holds air by god knows what principal e.g. it's warn past the canvas wire stage

Ah see what happens as nothing set in stone, as mentioned, to be honest sorta annoyed about that 12 slots radial giving way, I might throw some 235 and a pair of 215 on a pair see what happens, I still want to widen a pair of standard rims.

ummmm yeah,got one but a bit rusty so figured I'll live with the dent for a while and eventually look at repairing the rust in it but if a good door turns up well bonus.
bolted one on the front and on the back, well I reckon the don't look to bad on it but I suspect I'll need guards rolled as it scrubs, hmmmm. :lol:
