Hi Ian,

I'm building on an existing Deon chassis & body, so I am therefore pretty limited space wise, sadly.
Was the Deon based on a 206 shell, then converted to use the Lotus Europa chassis?...

As for the Audi 100 C4 & A6 C4 hubs, they have a 57.1 mm center bore, so you even need to add a spacer 57.1x58.1 mm diameter to reach the 58.1 mm center bore of the Cromodora replicas.
