The tyres arrived and are now fitted to the wheels. Fitted the hub adaptors and turned down a set of wheel nuts to allow the wheels to fit properly.
I've had the body on a couple of times and decided to raise it 3" over the internal framework. My reasoning being;
1/ To bring the lower sill of the body flush with the bottom of the chassis rails.
2/ Allow for softer springs so the axles aren't fully extended as at present. I hope to see a 3" drop with the softer springs.
3/ Effectively lower the seating position so you feel lower down in the car.

Decided on the final finish at last, I'm going for an aluminium look in the same way as the Testarossa I built. I'll apply the same detailing on the Formasa, think it will look the part, its not a million miles away as it stands ! I think I can recreate that dirty, bare aluminium finish once again like the car in the video below !
