Yea cheers for that, I’d already purchased a set when they came up for sale. Pretty sure they’re 100mm too, I’ll have I check next time I’m back home. The guy at Watson’s specified the width when I told him what I was doing.

I have been wanting a set of adjustable front arms for mine and never knew Carl made them, think they will be on my list of bits to buy.
As for the rear I use a set of mark D extended rear stubb axles and have done for about 5 years with no issues at all, if you can get a set made then go for it. He actually made mine to the exact size I wanted so that I didn’t have to use a spacer at all.
They are well worth the money

Regarding setting up the wheel alignment and geometry on the mgf/wastsons frame is a wishbone like this really needed? Obviously with the stand wish bone there is no castor or camber adjustment... how have people found them when they’ve had them put on the gauges?

metro cup men used to elongate the holes in the bottom arms it worked a treat simple and cheap
if this is a road car then i would say just use the MGF bottom ball joint they give a degree more camber which is fine on the road any more and id say tyres are suffering
