    The head place I took my head too had them in stock and did them for me. They said they preferred to use their own guides as some customers had brought in **** ones.

    Have you asked the stealers?

    I did but they don't seem to have them!! Didn't think it would be this difficult to get them.

    He does but asked me to get them as his contacts are for bike bits. But if I have no luck looking tonight will give him a call tomorrow and see what he can come up with.

    How desperate are you for them? PM "Jason.S" and ask him if he can get hold of any and post them to you. He is a parts adviser for VW :thumbsup:

    By the way Westy did you ever get the wheel spray film? I did my track wheels in the Pasti-dip came out really well so have ordered the same stuff you were looking at for my normal wheels to see how that goes.

    Unfortunately the wheels I bought for the track didn't clear my brembo calipers so I didnt end up refurbish them. I'm always on the look out for light wheels so I might end up spraying a set in the near future.
