I don’t consider the 11.90 a car that you did “for me” but I do love it! I just took it out for some street pulls. I’m hoping for a good showing with it Saturday!Matt FaulknerParticipantJuly 7, 2019 at 9:11 pmPost count: 49
Cool, I wanted to show off some wheels, and I just happened to see this thread! I made these this weekend. Had some machine access, and I thought it would be fun. Identical 3d scanned spokes from a deep 6 15 incher. Then I expanded it to a 16 inch 3 piece version. I’ll do 5.5 wide on the front and 6.5 on the rear of my Beetle project. Still waiting on rim halves and center caps, so I’ve got time to polish and detail. More to come!WAY2COOLParticipantJuly 7, 2019 at 10:10 pmPost count: 208

The surface looks almost polished.Pat KKeymasterJuly 8, 2019 at 8:12 amPost count: 1305
Nice Matt!! Your job perks are awesome. Becky’s looking good too.
We will build it if it comes.Matt FaulknerParticipantJuly 8, 2019 at 8:59 amPost count: 49
Thanks y’all. Yep they’re all programmed out and reproducible. They should polish up pretty easily. It’s been a crazy project, but i think they’re gonna turn out awesome.
The only sad part is that it costs so much more to make your own wheels than it does to just go buy some. Oh well lol.John JonesKeymasterJuly 8, 2019 at 9:04 amPost count: 6446
My kombi has some 16’s on it, and a narrowed rear.. I was planning on repops.. but shit.. to have some world famous Mat Faulkner wheels might be worth it..,
So your no where near the cost of an empi re-pop?? 😎Matt FaulknerParticipantJuly 8, 2019 at 11:01 amPost count: 49
Haha nowhere near the empi repop range, but i wouldn’t charge John Jones any more for a set than it costs me to make it. I’ll let ya know how bad the $ is when they’re finished.RustabusParticipantJuly 8, 2019 at 6:45 pmPost count: 1902
