    Right on. It's sweet as hell, though it was a hard sell when first told my painter about it. lol. It's a ppg paint, and the paint code comes up as an 80's Oldsmobile color. He called me when he ordered it and said " you sure about this color? I'm looking at it in the can and it's...really brown" I had seen it on an old pickup hot rod in R&C though, and in the sun I knew it would fire up like crazy. Sure enough he called once it the inner fender wells were done, and was as excited as I was. now I'm super excited to get the rest of the car up to par so we can lay the color on those 10 foot quarters!

    broke these badboys out and started shinin em up. they're far from perfect, and a bitch to clean, though i assume i'm preachin to the choir here :P


    This might be a silly question, but there's a bunch of allen head hardware on these and I'm wondering if i can pull em apart to really clean up the chrome/restore the parts that are in rougher shape... anyone done that?...everyone done that? Can't say i have experience with wires.

    Thanks guys!

    Cixpack, "hard to clean" is the understatement of the year!

    I found these by kind of a happy accident. I was actually looking for the tires, and when I came across these, and realized that they were the big 5x5" bolt pattern, it was a double win!

    The spokes were a lot worse than the pictures show though, and I've been spending every night this week with polish, razors, and all kinds of other jerry-rigged tools to knock the rust loose... i think i have carpel tunnel syndrome now!

    You're right though, It's totally worth it though once they get shined up.

    Plus I scored a few NOS center caps locally for next to nothing. hells yeah!

    Lol thanks, I'm tryin! This thing eats up materials like nobodies business. We're on the second coat of prime, touchin up a few areas that were not seen to this point...Figure since we are doing this beast full out, we might as well do it 100%.

    I'm heading down to the shop tomorrow for a bit so i'll snap off some more shots. I'm starting to wonder how hard it would be to bag this bad boy...i don't want to lay frame or anything, but there something to be said about adjust-ability. With the 3" blocks in the back and the fact that the rear wheel wells are super covered even with the skirts off, its low enough right now that i'm not sure that i can get the tires off without dropping the rear end every time... and i haven't turned the torsion bars down yet since i'm waiting to drop the motor in first... but i don't know how low i can get it with just turning them down... then again, how do you even bag a car with torsion bars?? I have a feeling its a lot of fab work that i don't have skill for/funds i don't have to afford some one else to fab... (feel free to weigh in if you know a solution here.)
