Yeap, easy enough to drop the sump off and do that work if you want to. Mine has done ~250,000kms so may or may not need doing. I hooned it in my younger days so I need to go over what I have just mentioned. Its been off the road for some years now.

Need to get the car running to make it easier to move around so had to order some new tyres that hold air.

Decided on toyo r888r.

I have Nankang 185/60/13 on mine currently, I wouldn't go any wider as I get a fraction of scrub at full lock.

I'm wanting to put on some nice 15" mesh style which will push to 195/45/15....

It's only on the passenger side at full left lock so it is possible the inner guard could be pushed out a smidge. Rubs on the side of the frame, not the guard. Running original shocks etc so its rubbish as.
