The black rim on the sprints looks cool.

How did the wire harness work? Were the fuse box ends pretty close?


Tanks Franz! We still having a lot of fun doing this....beat tired, but still smilin \:D/ tripleJ's working as a team, sessions are always great =D>

Offsets on the sprints look money, the black was done in all of 3 mins...I took a handful or rust dust from a shitty barndoor gas tank that got cut up and rubbed it into the black when still tacky haha wipe the spokes with thinner and shabam!

Harness worked out good....fuse box side was perfect, had to extend a few in back and added a couple spares front to back inside stock loom for future wants. Next time I did this id custom order it with 8-10" extra on every wire! Just to run how I wanted without compromise.

Russ, we got the wheels done locally at a shop here, we cut all the centres apart, cause I wanted them all to match, they are all og 4/67 and then by fluke found a set of old steelies that had nice lips when flipped inside out, so I pulled them all apart and we bolted them to the bus to get the offset just perfect, for the fronts we needed another band added to the inside of the hoop so it would get that extra 3/8" in that we needed to clear the dogleg!!! Anyone who has ever done this realizes show much work it actually is, we are super stoked to be tucking big fat tires front and real should ride like a caddy, the only part we don't like about these wheels is that the hoops are off a early 2000 subaru, and you know what we think about Subarus up here in the great white north, official car of the lesbians, anyways let's hear it now Andy hahahahaha, thanks for all the support everyone
