    Of course you didn't, but I do know someone who welded in some bearclaw door latches upside down and backwards. HAHAhahahaaaaa, I laugh because I love.

    Great craftsmanship!

    Finally back home from the Casting shop after spending something like 9 hours there.
    3 of them turnd out good and the last looks a little less gordius.
    Had some problems due to that I had some crap top coat paint on the frontside of the model and when we tooked the forms apart to get the model out a little bit of sand were stucked to the model, mostly were the text is.
    Think some grinding and sandblasting will do the trick, in worst case we just cast a new one :)

    Next thing will be to get them on some heattreatment to make the material stronger/better.
    Then its time for boltpattern, centerhole and outer diameter and finally adding the wheel-rims.

    We added some Grafite on the model to get a better sand release, it looks cool :)

    I've never wanted a set of wheels so bad in my life! They're incredible.
