Thanks

Good search Kam.
I have to admit though, they aren't as thorough or captivating as your thread. Not even close. And most of those up there don't really explain the interesting or technical points, it's more build pictures, and some most even finished and haven't been updated in years!

Mine isn't thorough or captivating, its more of waffling, teaching people how to suck eggs and a bit more waffling and must be a drag for some people to read

I've gone into detail yes but its just to help anyone else as you don't know how much someone knows or don't know, I'm not on a mission to teach the whole world or anything its just I'm proud of what I've done so far, so its only different as its a bit OTT on the info but I don't care as I'm not forcing anyone to read it

K20 in a mini is not an everyday thing so you'll be hard pressed to find a build that goes into alot of detail for whatever reason, not sure why but I would guess some people will keep there cards close to there chest as they are very far and few between compared with the B's, all you need to know is its been done before, don't worry about finding an in-depth build diary, getting your info together at the start and getting around a problem later on is part of the fun

Wow. . . All I can say is from personal experience. . . even 15" wheels look rediculas. I don't know about the EP3 but I know the EK4 came with a 13" set which would match the pcd. . . Try to keep your wheels as small as possible, but that's just my opinion/preference.
