    They’re 16x7’s, I do love a TE… shame they don’t still make them new in my size/pcd etc. I was tempted by some new regamasters but I just couldn’t justify the price. As it turns out, I wasn’t a million miles away from that by the time I’d finished refurbing these. 20/20 hindsight. Not driven...

    That’s 16mm of spacer. Awkward size, Not sure if I’ll get away with 15. It’s a lot more than I was hoping for. There’s a slight chance I’ll gain a mm or so back, as I’m not sure if I’ve got the spacer on right. I don’t think I’ll know for sure until the pistons see some pressure.

    Rear speakers appeared to be aftermarket but nothing crazy big or anything. Don’t think it had any tweeters or front speakers at all. The rear light issue when I purchased the car was to do with a badly hacked radio harness… so safe to assume it’s been fcuked about with.
