    Nice work, quite a bit of progress already. I think those wheels will look great, but I agree on a wider wheel on back. I don't think a 5" wide wheel will take anything over a 165...

    Yeah I don't plan to run that exact size, just that style. Still kicking around ideas. Long way off anyways.

    A gun is like a parachute. If you need one, and don't have one, you'll probably never need one again.

    I like the steel wheels. If you do aluminum, (as much as I love my torque thrusts) I'd do something a little different. I like the American Racing Salt Flat wheels.

    Those salt flat wheels are nice too.

    So the exhaust from the mufflers back is in rough shape. I really don't want to dump them before the axle in a car thats not well sealed, I'm getting too old for huffin fumes. Since the body is shit anyways I might figure out something other than tail pipes, idk. I just don't like the look of tail pipes or side pipes.

    I had them dump mine over the axle on my last hot rod, don’t see pipes and it still keeps the fumes away or maybe they can tuck the tail piles and you won’t see them. Probably depends on the trunk pan and all that good stuff though.
