  14. This makes me really want to run chrome steelies on my coupe.... Did you weld them yourself after they were chromed?

    Thanks everyone!
    Brady1929- I will try, I'm not sure how to do it.
    Skatermann- I took the wheels to a shop in LA to have them welded back together. They had a machine to set the wheels up to weld them balanced. I cant remember their name, but if you want I can dig for their contact info.
    Curbspeed- Thanks for posting those pics for me. I'm not on facebook anymore so I couldn't do it. By the way you guys have a great club, lots of nice coupes!

    Man, you totally Nailed it!!....Coupe looks badass, But I can not figure out why it looks better in post number 6 than in post number 11 too me.....maybe because in post number 6 it is not finished and I see it finished out diffrently through my own eyes, Hell I dunno, either way it is badass goodjob.

    My oh my! I love every aspect of this car. The chop, the stance, the wheels and tires, engine, the exhaust, every single one. Beautiful car. Well done.

    Have you looked at Rocky's build? He has some cool ideas for garnish.molding that you might be able to utilize, and easier to find than what.you're looking for.

    Absolutely stunning car, and the dedication to see it through over such a long period of time.................PRICELESS!!! Thanks for sharing the build with us. It makes for a long read but so much better than waiting out those long gaps that take place wondering if the whole thing has been forgotten or the builder has died:rolleyes:
