I've been tinkering again today with the mini...
Got two new tyres on order for the 12x6's so they'll be legal.
Test drove the car with the 12x6's on the front and with just my weight in the car the tyres scrub the bodywork on full lock, so I'm going to have to sort this properly!
I've heard about "templates" in order to cut the arches and that I'll need to remould the lip, but I can't find any information on the correct process or how to reinstate the lip once the arch has been cut? Is there such a tool that will bend the lip back?
Can anybody point me in the right direction please so I can establish if this is something I can do myself or if I'm going to have to employ someone to do this for me.
Having researched suitable arches for 12x6's, I would like to use the wider Group 2 race ones. Will these fit even though the arches have been cut?
And also to rub salt into my wounds, I discovered that my passenger side floor pan is rotten through... The MOT is looking further and further away!
Wish I hadn't even started this mission now, so any motivational support will also be greatly recieved...
