    Picked up a set of wheels today, I have trolled Craigslist for months looking for some 18s that could be used. I finally scored a set of FR500 knock offs, they were on a Mustang and the guy went with something new. The lips are a little pitted but easy enough to fix, picked them up for $300!

    I had a set of regular old 6901's on mine. They actually looked fairly good when I removed them. I'm with you on not wanting to ding them.

    While waiting for my tires took the time to repack wheel bearing, painted the drums installed new wheel studs. Noticed that I have a wheel brake cylinder seeping so I guess I better get one of those and new brake shoes. I should just bite the bullet and put disc brakes on it since it will not be a race car anymore.

    It was really hard to work in the garage since today was one of those rare days that it wasnt raining in Oregon

    Finished the Granada C4 shift cable install, installed new master cylinder, and bleed all the brakes. Throttle cable up next.

    went to Summit this morning and picked up a set of drilled and slotted rear rotors for my...Crown Vic. rear disc brake swap.
    swung by to pick up my rims (again). they loaded them in my truck for me. as I was looking at them the owner walked out and started looking them over, His comment "these ain't right".
    I agreed with him so he unloaded them to be blasted back down to be redone for the forth time...:slap:
    there was some good in this...one of them was perfect...now I know what they will look like when done. he did say he has to redo all of them again to make sure they all come out the same color...:bouncy:

    this is why I start in Feb. for my July trip...LOL

    Sorta tough to get a color to match your car isnt it Frank, your killing us with the suspense but if I know you they will be top notch. Those wheels must be related to the c4 you had such problems with
