You managed to snatch one away from us!

After taking my evo to many wrong places its nice to take it to places that know what they are doing!

Hi Steve,
I saw your ad on Gumtree regarding wheels.
Do these work any better for you
13X6 Original Bathurst Globes?
All tyres have tread but are probably due to be changed due to age.

Hi Deano,
 
Thanks for offering these up but I am really after a plain steel type 5 1/2 x13 size or 6 x 13.  Possibly RS 4 spokes.
happy to say the car has finally passed roadworthy and is now on historic rego.

no worries.
I gave a set of steels to another forum member who was relocating his cars overseas. 
Who did your roadworthy, and which club did you go through?
If I get back onto my Escort, I will need to find someone 'sympathetic' to older cars.
Love the guard dog..

I used a garage near to me in Geelong.  They did a good job but it was really expensive.  They were reasonably happy to work on older cars but were a bit frustrated waiting on parts and in fact fitted roller top strut mounts.  This had the unwanted affect of not only raising the car by at least an inch, were also a great deal more expensive and were not really required, they just didn’t want to wait for the other ones to be delivered.  The other work again was expensive but they did a good job overall.
it’s always a risk buying a car from SA as they can sometimes get away with things you can’t and don’t actually want to get away with in Victoria. No offence intended to SA people.
i am now back as a member with the RS Owners Club Victoria again and the rego part was painless at Vic Roads in Geelong.
