You get to have early nights and if your adventurous you can Play bingo one night a week.
Uniting Holden / Isuzu Piazza Enthusiasts
Right on the money there mate. As soon as my Impulse garnishes arrive I'll be changing all Holden badges at the same time. Can't wait. Garnishes are on their way from the States as I speak.Ghost wrote:It's a nice looking car, but I hope you get rid of those ridiculous Holden badges.
They are Lenso 16” mags which have the correct offset for the Piazza. Apparently very hard to find. Rodavo needs to be credited for this wheel selection.speedracerles wrote:So on the silver JR what kind of wheels are those and specs Please I have to have them I just have too...lol they look so sick... Now this is something that I would be willing to copy in a heart beat.
Thanks for the heads up and I wonder if speedracerles will have the same issue. They run different shock and spring settings to us Aussie folk, and possibly to you guys, so the travel and resulting camber might not be as great as what the early Aussie versions had. Never heard of trepan before, but then what do I know about engineering carswedgenut wrote:here is a tip free and for nothing, I fitted a set of nice shadow chroime 16 x 7's with a 25 offset and they line up really nice. The only hassle was when the car is jacked up the inside edge of the tyre makes slight contact with the front shocks, no problems on the rear wheels. Rather than fit spacers which I hate I fitted Rodeo front shocks, they are higher pressure which improves front handling anyway and being 10mm shorter on extended length solves the problem as the wheels don't trepan in as far on jack up. Now have 5mm clearance. Keeps the compliance pricks off my case. I did try to explain it wasn't a problem anyway because I rarely drive around with both front wheels suspended in mid air but they like their rules.
In laymans terms, what happens is that the upper arm the shock is attached to and the lower control arm anchored to the crossmember swing down as the car is raised. This arc of swing brings the wheel and hub assembly closer the centre line of the car the lower it falls. When the moment of arc involves two more or less parallel arms swinging together on independant pivots in the same direction the end result is that the tyre sidewall comes very close to the lower part of the shock tube even with standard wheels. A slightly greater offset combined with a wider rim and tyre combo and you have contact.Never heard of trepan before,
