    Decided to fit some extra strength in and move the tunnel up a little as the prop shaft used to hit it on hard driving.

    There's nothing wrong with those wheels, they seem to suit a Mk2 with arches. Some of the Escorts in the Vecta Fast Ford Championship of the 90's had them fitted. It looks like there's been a nice job done of refurbishing them too.
