well those are Hijoin racing alloys.model no. is some BM-(something)

the specs are 15X 7.5j
the tire specs are 205/50 r15...i know its smaller dia but looks good right now.later i'll upgrade to 205/55 r15

they are VFM tires.decent grip.good to look.first choice was goodyear,the bridgestone,michelin but as i had to get this car ready for my sister's birthday i had to hurry the order for the tires.these were the quickest to come.and thats why the smaller size also came in.the dealer made a mistake and i had no time to get it corrected.

the alloys cost me quite a lot.20k for a set of 4.highway robbery i know.but can't help it.we have only one sorry *** dealing in these have to bear his monopoly

Good retirement plan :) Any tips for damping? Iv got about 40sq ft of damping sheets and at this stage it doesnt seem like I will have any rear fill.

navpreet318 7th January 2008 21:51

well damp it really good.where ever you get more space put on multiple layers of damping.
also keep a check on the holes in which the clips of the panels go in.clear them off any damping.or you'll have trouble later.also keep a thin layer of damping around the area where the arm rest is.
heat up the surface properly.
also i guess you must know that damping is done in three layers.
the outer sheet.
the inner frame of the door is literally sealed to as much as possible.
and then the inner side of the panel.damp it properly coz the inner door pocket vibrates.
the more you damp the better it is.
damp the wheel well and try to make the rear wheel well lid with mdf.
well rear fill is not needed if you're gonna be driving.even i think i should have invested more in the front compos more instead of even using a rear fill.
