27th February 2020 - Cosmic wheels get correct 4 inch Pitch Circle Diameter (PCD)
XP781’s original wheels were the Cosmic Mk4. Having tracked down a set, that miraculously included a spare and four centre caps, it was apparent that the PCD was not the required 4 inches, but rather 4.5 inches. On closely checking the picture below it can be seen that Midas had the same problem and had brought the PCD in to the correct 4 inches.
Having pondered many solutions, decided to bite the bullet, so to speak, and get the wheels amended as Midas did. This work was entrusted to the excellent TT Tools of Chelmsford.
TTT removed the steel inserts from each bolt hole. The holes were then plugged with aluminium.
New bolt holes in correct position were then drilled and a rebate created to enable nuts to fit.
Finally, chamfers added and rear faced off.
A big thank you to the team at TTT.
