Deets on what "doing it properly" is going to mean for you?

Not slapping it together haha. Will be a keeper so will do it once and do it properly, good parts, finish nicely etc etc.

Azhar runs 8.5 ZS all round on his coupe - so yes they 'will' fit!



yeah i presume hes got 5 stud hubs (havent checked with him though haha), iv already got 4 stud hubs made up, could get another set of disks and hubs i guess but will see when i get some adaptors for the rear and do a test fit. 8.5s look so much better though so much more dish.

Re those rear caliper brackets your mate made ... are they a 2 piece deal ie steel onto the diff housing then with a hunk of machined alloy to adapt the caliper to the steel plate? Or full alloy. Cheers. 

Full alloy onto axle flange.

yea way tougher with the dish, and yes he has 5 stud PCD all round

Yeah his looks real good

Ill fit a 8.5 with a 20mm PCD adaptor on the rear due to narrowed diff,

Front maybe, maybe not. See once they turn up i guess ha.

Only just seen the build thread. Looks great..! Looks like we have parallel projects on the go. Although mine is an 808. I was looking to go 20B pp then got the prices through and very quickly decided to stay 13B bp..! Bits are getting harder and harder to get. Just managed to get some doors out of Cali. Bloody heavy and realised that they have side intrusion bars in them for the US market. Who knew...? I guess everyone but me... lol.
