got some 8x13 for the rear almost fill out the arches  can get another
1/8" wide with out risking damage (wheel nuts still have 6 turns  they
tell me thats safe)  they have 195/45/13 tyre's so should stick well

and 6x13  for the front but not fitted yet got to split the disc to get the stud's in (80mm)

 what do you all think

Just a quick question on the body work, I see that your car suffers from the pink haze, is there any way to get rid of this, my marcos is also a sufferer, I cut the haze back with T-cut but found it very hard to get an even finish/luster, there was alwas some area of each panel that looked "out" . Then the haze started to return within a couple of months.

I think a respray is the only real answer. Some gelcoat colours and especially the 'red' used on Mk. IV Mini Marcoses tends to fade and go streaky after a few years in the sun. It's not just surface oxidisation. I've seen similar fading on a blue D&H Midas.
