I dont think you will have a problem.  Once they are tighten down you should not get any movement anyway.  Just use the correct fastners, torque and sequence.  You have fixed bells so are not designed to move like a floating setup.  The back ring is just a centering rings....They should centre correctly off the shoulder of the fastner regardless..hth
Definately want it mate but the dog has just died so will be getting the missus a new dog for christmas....
Sounds like a good deal but will have to ask the dragon first.....  :flamed  :spank

Am abit confused here...just gone to my mate and assembled using his torque wrench. Went opposite bolts to 5nm and then opposites like a clock face 6pm then 12 , 9 then 3 etc. It looks sweet these where brand new ap bolts.  Like i said first big brake kit for me so learning.

hey if the brakes work then they work.  If the new discs were smaller than the old ones then you wont have a problem,  I just remember the inner rings being tight when i changed them so didnt want you taking off material you didnt have to!

I know what you mean about the clutch, its not made for around town driving! Wait until you launch it though :) Theres a point you get it to where its biting but the car wont move. Come off a few MM and it takes off like a scalded cat with a really positive hook up in the rear. Youll see :) And youll learn to love it im sure too hahaha

Let us know how the MOT goes, I think I'm nearly as excited about this as you.  Did you change the engine mounts? I cant remember.
