No kidding, that did come out really good. I was hoping you were going to do something with those tail pipes. mine were the same way and I absolutely hated them. so what year model are those side mirrors? I love my lil chromies but just wondering. I was wondering how it would look with the stock rims but I'll let you armor all the tires before I make up my mind though. Be safe and be sure not to forget that blinker !

What's funny here is I went home to get my camera & this guy in a new Land Rover w/the supercharger decide to race me so naturally I obliged. I blew his doors off & I bet he was pissed off that car costs around 100K. Anyway one of the heater hoses blew shortly there after because of all the excitement. So I'm in the process now of replacing all the hoses Smiley

Damn thing looks like it's still wet. with everything clean, those ralley's give it a good look. hard to tell, are the rims painted black or is that just a shadow?

Very Nice Alan,

I'm gonna get the 17" wheels just can't decide if I should put them on the 68 or 73. If I put the 17's on the 68 the wheels & tires on the 68 will go to the 73. Whatever I decide the 73 tires will go on the 77.   They have plenty of rubber but to old to really be safe to drive on. I did paint the 73 wheels black when I first got it... I'm sorta leaning on putting the 17's with run flats on the 73 because I'll be driving it much more  than the others. The 275/60/15's on the back of the 68 really hook & might be to much for the 73  and the 245/55/17's are not as wide. Decisions, decisions  Huh
