hi new to this forum and as im building a mk6 escort i tought this would be a good place to show what im doing to it.the car is a gti which i picked up for 150 quid minus its bumpers, mirrors some bits of the engine and a half leather trim which was all in the boot.the plan of action is to fit 18" front wheels and 20" rears,no arch extensions all the wheels tucked nicely up in the origal arches on a 60mm drop.heres some pics how the project started and over the coarse of the week will post pics of the work which has been done to date.

heres some more pics,the rear tyres are 275x30x20 and as you can see in the pics they are inside the arches.the rear beam has been narrowed 5"and raised 2" to off set the diameter of the rear wheels so car will still sit low.started to replace the chassis rails and new beam mounts which are being lazor cut at work.

the wheels in the pics are just for set up.the hubs will be converted to five stud so no need for adaptors.
