    Got a spare hour this afternoon so decided to grind out the centre bore on one of the new steel wheels and try and get it to fit.

    This is what I started with. A 6.5x15 steel wheel for an Astra.



    I started off with a round edge file and after about 20 mins had a nice shiny centre bore and plenty of metal filings.





    I tried the wheel on the van and hadn't taken enough off with the file. I went back and forth another couple of times before running out of patience and getting the die grinder out. A few minutes with that and the wheel finally fitted









    The perfect fit I'll get the others filed down over the course of the week, give the bare metal a couple of coats of hammerite and then get the tyre's on them. Should keep the van looking pretty standard

    I must admit that I'm starting to get a bit frustrated with not being able to mount the engine. I don't have the skills to make a mount myself and my old Boss is so busy at the moment he doesn't have the time or space to have the van and make the mounts for me
