Hope this is easy for you to get sorted mate. Following with interest as usual.  :thumbsup:

Hope so mate. I just don't get it, it seems like the wheel well is too deep and is hitting the frame, But then the frame is bolloxed. Hopefully when I try the fittings on the new frame all will be good

 

I should have taken more photos to show what I mean, Have you done anything to yours?

Had a ride over to mini spares north today and picked up this little lothOnWC1c.jpg​Took advantage of the Heritage sale and saved a few quid, almost paid for the bonnet. 

 

Busy days ahead

Had a day in the garage with R kid today, My GT now has a better arse than Kylie, Even better, mocked up the subframe with a bolt kit from minispares and it doesn't foul on the body anymore.

Next time I'm in the garage I'll get a few photos. May not be the best help because they're magnum panels I got from a show a while back, and the fit was terrible, the closeouts were a mile out, had a lot of messing with them.
