That's all right mate, happens more than you might think

I thought I might update this, I got my p's today and celebrated by going for a drive up Mt Alexander with one of my mates who has a vx Commodore, left him well behind in the twisties and it was a great drive. I'm loving the independence and I have fallen in love with this car all over again :D

Hit a little hurdle today, my friends got me a mcgard wheel installation kit for my birthday. However I went to put the lock nuts and nuts on today and I can't actually do them up. Due to the rediculously deep bolt holes on my wheels the nuts can be screwed on by hand but a spanner cannot be put over them to get them beyond this starting point. So I'll need to go find some smaller diameter ones to fit, they should be fine for stock wheels just not for mine :(

thats fustrating, did you not get like a special tool? usually slips over the nut and into a socket piece. usually a bit thinner and much longer than the socket piece

No such tool,it would have to be only about 1-2mm in thickness to get into the hole though and be very long. The spanner goes about half way down the nut so you can't even get it to the thread. The lock nuts obviously have a tool which goes in the end of the spanner and you can get them on to about half way down the thread before it fouls on the wheel

Nah a wheel spanner, just presumed it was obvious haha. Upon further investigation the lock nut tool is only a couple of millimeters thick but the nuts are 21mm which leaves no room for the wheel spanner to go over them in the hole (stock are 19mm)
