    Wheels are done!!! 26" rear with balloon tire, front is a 24" with a lower profile tire, looks pretty cool. black rims, black spokes, black hubs, and brass nipples. good contrast, hard to tell in pics.

    Seed holes would be nice... too bad i dont have a water jet to cut em out. i dont even have a drill press, :oops:
    Ive been working on stripping the paint on the frame a getting ready to paint. my inspiration for the paint is a newer style hot rod theme. flat paint on the body and super metal flake on the roof. i have not been able to find any good pics of this, but im sure you've seen a car like this. they are pretty popular here in so cal.. i'll keep u posted! later

    you dont need a drill press either....... just something to clamp to,a block of wood. and a drill and some hole saws(you can get those from harbor freight if you want cheapies).
