KT35 MK6 Build

Aaaanyway. 

The newer suspension has obviously settled a little and the 35's had started catching slightly on the front inner arch when turning. 

So I got out the kind grinder and gently persuaded a few bits toyota had fitted to part company with the rest.

Reworked the front arch extension to soften the curve, and the original bumper plastic too. 

Then undid the front of the inner arch cover and pulled it forward to make some more space. Thats pretty much it now as the inner arch is tight up against the rear of the washer bottle. But to.be fair there's loads of room now even if I adjusted the camber bolts to help any rear clearance.

And don't forget to clean behind the arch extensions! ;) looks like sibber clog to me :lol:

It reminds me of buying a house . All the stuff you bought and don't like ends up in a skip.

Cheers. Still got the back to do, but hoping to achieve off roading articulation on the 35's, otherwise, what's the point? Easy enough to drop to 33's for play days but can't be arsed with the faf of wheels off, spacers off, little wheels on... all with a single jack. An hour or two's work and same when you get back.

Has to be done, but I equate it more to biting the sponge and chocolate from the edge of a jaffa cake.... ;) leaving just the tasty bit! :D

... and for a bit more finesse you could have used a reciprocating saw :D

It's all relative as you well you know :P

Funny how these old school mk6ers get all "la de da" when they upgrade. You"ll be telling me next you take it to the dealer to have the tyres inflated.... ;)

In all seriousness, a stainless steel 1mm cutting blade does a great job on the plastic, just enough melt to keep a smooth edge, but sharp enough not to bog down. 

:thumbsup:

Doesn't inflation come with the dealer services ? :D 

PS wait until you see my planned modification involving a trestle ;)

Dealers love inflation, I'm sure they will honour   blowing up your rim untill you make that final payment.... :roflmao:

 

Can't wait. I assume we are taking traditional wooden A framed wood working trestle and not some modern steel scaffolding type?

:rolleyes:

I wouldn't choose 18's again. So much more choice of 17" tyres and rims. And considerably cheaper. 

Dirt cheap if you drop to 16", but understand thats not always possible. 

Luckily my truck will also take a 15" so best of both worlds. :)

 

What year is your truck Wolfracer? 

I tried fitting some 15’s on mine and couldn’t get them on, I did think that with some spacers they might fit? 

 

Probably could fit some 16’s with spacers.
