Hardware for the wheels have finally arrived after about a month long wait.


Powder has been ordered and should be in my possession early next week. If all goes to plan coating will happen next weekend.

Picked up what I needed to strip the clear and polish them lips.


Tire also came yesterday


If all goes to plan my powder should be here in the next couple days and if I can finish stripping the centers and get them beed blasted then powder might go on next weekend.

I'm getting anxious

Well the centers on my wheels aren't fully stripped yet and I didn't feel like working on them after work so I used my friends homemade fender roller and rolled my front fenders.

I rubbed slightly up front before rolling my fenders. If I was getting new tires I would go with a 235 tire rather than the 245. With a roll and a 235 you won't have and rubbing issues.
