G'day Raymond,His comment made my day!
i've just received the rims and all is good. I'm very happy with the condition they're in and although i haven't fitted them to my car (95 civic) yet, they look great next to it. Thankyou for your prompt responses and for making my first ebay experience smooth and stress free.
So anyway, lack of updates are due to working on my Mk3 Golf. Still working on it, and hoping to finish before mid-November comes (DOVW in Melbourne and rego is due). However, I've two wheel projects that I've started - the aforementioned 17" 2-piece BBS RS702, and also a mate's (probably soon to be mine?) 16" Volk CVs. Stashed away is a set of stock Mk3 VR6 stock BBS wheels, generic 7-spoke 16" wheels, 16" Alpina replicas I'm picking up soon and a single BBS RS wheel (for shits and giggles). Next update may be during X'mas time.
