Love this build. Looking forward to seeing more!
I eliminated the center bearing when I shortened the torque tube and driveshaft on my Av8 build. no issues so far
What part of lousiana are you from?
No issues with the chrome or anything? They look good on your car. I was looking at some 15x5 and 15x8’s for an early 60’s t bucket build
Anyone running these 15” chrome speedway wheels. Just curious about the quality of the chrome. Any pics? [ATTACH]

Its upside down in this pic. Fyi
