I'm down to help. It's the least I can do since you did put in three welding sessions on the gas tank. As long as I get the pumping part of the job. Wink Let me know what night you want me to swing by and help. I'll make time. If you want to do that this afternoon/evening, I can swing by on my way into town. You are technically on my way home.

Kelley park I'll be rolling! Rolling new wheels!!! No more donk for me, they are sick as fuck rims, but I want more tire! 15" ford wheels! Nice 15x6 all around should help with handing.

Vw shell, Subaru engine, Porsche brakes, ford wheels.

Yeah! My dad is a mustang dude. He even has them on his trailer, my brother has them on his trailer too!

Magnum 500 is the new rim. Not all big and blingy, but a good looking rim. Still chrome and black...without the cost of Vw rims.

Have you already ordered the new wheels? I know you talked about them, when will you have them?

Pics of the wheel? Or is it gonna be a surprise?

I fucking rocked it tonight!!! New radiator showed up today, so I couldn't let it sit alone..time to do work!!! Moved the ports, welded in a divider, welded a cap on it, installed and filled with water!

Ran it for 45 minutes or so tonight, 180 degrees!!! (Good!)
I put a piece of paper infront of the grill, fans sucked it to it and hold it up---means the fans are doing their job!!!!

Gonna hit the streets tomorrow!!! Pictures and info updates tomorrow! Just after mid night. Couple hours of sleep and back to it!!
