You'd wonder why someone would do such a nice job on the paintwork but not bother to do the small bit of welding need first :shock:

Hi all haven't had a chance to do much in the last few weeks because of the new job.
Got the Mini started yesterday for the first time.

Image

Test fitted the wheels and aches to see what they looked liked. Need to get the proper nuts not sure which ones any advice would be great? and I need to get better centre caps any ideas would be great?

For the nuts you will need to contact the manufacturer to see what the angle of the chamfer is required on the seat of the nut, usually 45 degree or 60 degree.

What size wheel centre do you need I have a few chrome ones that might suit.
