    Crickey, that is one hell of a spec. Where are you putting the twin 10"s?

    In the recesses at the back on both sides behind the wheel arches. Its a really neat install.

    I'd love to move the jack to install a twin 10" / 12" setup. I actually have the amps and two 12" subs but not sure about going through will a full install.

    Go-on, you know you want to. Who needs a jack, get the AA out.

    You are a terrible influence. On a serious note, if i did go for it, I'd want the install of the amps / subs to be in a way that I could remove it from the Kombi if i needed to. So some kind of twin enclosure that straps to the rear seat legs or something along those lines is what I have in my mind.

    A couple of things happened today;

    She went from a 17 plate to a 66 when we added our BO66NOR plate;

    99F72156-D9E7-4DA6-8AC2-17EED6263C5C_zpsmyepfj4h.jpg

    And then straight onto the ramp for full Bilstein B14 installation;

    Set to the lowest height of course.......

    A294F335-F365-4DE5-9B3D-6929658C18DF_zpsgbmn0nhn.jpg

    Tomorrow, its having full Caravelle grille and lower trim, trapezoid sidebars, OZ Racing wheels, front lower lip and of course a good clean for some pics.

    So today this happened;

    IMG_4365_zpshr0ftou6.jpg

    The picture above was taken before the suspension had settled properly. Unbelievable there is only a slight rub on the arch liner on full lock, which will be adjusted.

    This picture shows the Caravelle front end perfectly.

    We are really pleased with how it looks and drives.

    That is a really nice colour that shows off a very deep shine. Quite a transformation. What did you do to cure the slight rub - raise it a bit?

    We use a heat gun on the arch liner

    Ah, a case of warm and reform. Will remember that for when I am finally able to sort my wheels and suspension out.

    Absolutely beautiful, I love the colour of the wheels:rolleyes:
    Do the wheels have the same ET off set Front and Back?
    and same tyre sizes?
    I'm a committed 17"wheel man, but when I see those grey OZ's:inlove:

    They are 8.5 x 20 ET40, same back to front. You can run 10's at the back, but I'm happy how it looks. Tyres are 275/35/20 Pirelli all round.

    They are a straight fit. More pics tomorrow
