Only took me almost a month, but I managed to source and put in a "new" wheel stud that someone from the german Corvette forum send to me from a parted out car.And now for the somewhat big one:
While taking the wheels off, there was one lug nut that was really tight - turns out, it has been mounted in a kinda crooked way. Ouch. At least I broke it off myself instead of just weakening the bolt and loosing it somewhere on a road, imagine that ...
Now this meant somehow finding another one - which means hopping in the Astra wagon of his brother and trying to source some on a saturday noon before the shops close. Sadly we were unable to locate any, which means Beni and his brother got really creative and took of a somewhat fitting wheel stud off a Volvo V40 and made it fit for the C4 - MacGyver would be proud. Now, this doesn't mean I want to drive around like this forever, but it's still working! I am in the process of sourcing at least one, if not two new wheel lugs - because as you can see at this picture down below, there's been another one that has been changed once. A massive thanks again to Beni and his brother for this awesome work - it was mostly me watching and failing because I am just not that handy and they knew how to get the job done efficiently.
You are correct, I should pay more attention to their site. It might look like it's still 2002 but they seem very reliable, no? I have ordered some stuff from corvettemods.com and both packages seem to be lost, and I did not get any reply yet. God damn it.Rockauto.com is your friend.
I get most of my Equus parts from there!
