345 35 18 et ss street all done , they fit great ,
That better be some solid drive line alex!
all sorted , a while ago
yeah but i hope they work, if no then ill just go with bias ply , that should work
I'm Having some wheels re-barreled at the moment. Can I ask who you went through to source the reverse lips?
good question , was some time ago , i had a quick look , but cant find atm , but i will let you know
the place is called wheel mods , they are in vic, he measured them up and got them from the USA these are thick , the wheels went to Sydney after that and a guy called AA-weld ( all aluminum welding ) he is a true gun when it comes to welding and has all the equipment to do the job properly
i HUGE thanks to robert sidaway for finding these bad boys and giving me a heads up asap , these are second hand k2 headlights i just received and im F.N happy as pluk , i was dying to get these some time ago , but i didnt, i put them on the got to get list , because i didn't think they will end production on them , as it happens they are discontinued , these are the last bit of the puzzle for my zed the headlights are in great condition ,
They are the business, I couldn't justify getting them when so many of the other areas on my own Z were lacking, but I wish it didn't have to be that way!
Nice pick up, can't wait to see them fitted up.
wont be any time soon , but yeah me to
i finally found /got some veilside andrews 5 in 18ns , ill be setting these up for the zed .
Nice one, I got a set for mine which are waiting to go on as well. What width/offset did you get? Are you going to re-barrel them like the last set? If so, depending on the barrel specs, I may grab 2 or 4 barrels. It looks like you got a decent aggressive fitment though looking at the dish.
yeah i will be re barreling them, i normally keep the barrels just in case, post up a pic or your , these are 10 on the back and 9 up front , i will be going 10 up front and 13 on the back same spec as the last wheels i had built ,
Fair call, mine are 18 x 9.5 and 18 x 8.5, they should fit well enough straight up, but I may want to re-barrel them down the line.
I bought them from a guy with a 11 year build 20b Cosmo, he had a change of heart on the wheels. He was 15 mins up the road from me, I got lucky. They had sat for around 8 years, so a bit of oxidisation and surface rust, I polished them up by hand. He had the spokes polished, I feel like I want the hammered paint reapplied to them before they go on, just not a priority right now.
See pics, 1st one when I picked them up, the other 3 after polishing. Just a little lip on the fronts.
yeah they look so nice , i was thinking full polish with black hardware on the rim and cap , or white center , polished outer with black hardware , ,
Are you painting the whole car soul red?
yeah crystal soul red
White centres would give a big pop then, polished more undercover. Always a tough choice!
