    G`day Chris
    Like ausmk2 said its never really finished, you`ll be noticing things that could have been done better, things you could add or things that would just make it look better. I spent 6 years on a mk2 cortina and it was never "finished" lol
    I have to admit  that shes turned out really nice, so glad to see i`m not the only one that has stuck with standard sized wheels. What stud pattern did you go with?

    These are 15x7 on the front and 15x8 on the rear SuperLites 114.3 x 100 standard ford 5 studs. Wheel track is about 200mm wider all up with diff and front coil overs Au hubs. Going to upgrade fron AU callipers to the Subaru ones when I get time and will sell them off cheap.

    My son would have loved me to flare mine, but with not a speck of rust in my arches I just couldn't cut them up.  Also, the wheels necessary to fill them out are decidedly illegal on a road car.

    If you fit a hi-ace diff you pick up 10 or 20 mm in your track, or if you want to be really cheeky you can try to get a cortina diff passed, escort rear track is 1283 mm while cortina rear track id 1422mm. They would really fill out those arches
