I stumbled upon some cool steel bushings.

Nice! where did you find those? off the shelf part?

I can't remember off the top of my head if Jaguar and MG had the same spline size for their wheels. I think they did. MG ran 14" and 15" and I think Triumph and Jag had 16". I bought a pair of MGB's for $100 last year and they are both wire wheel cars....

They are actually from toyota fuel rails. The bushings that keep you from overtightening them. I am basically just using them for the holes. They will be buried in weld.

All the disappointment I had when I heard you were not going to complete this project was worth it.

I can't wait to see how it turns out!
