Welcome to the forum!

@GoremanX and I will soon be abusing you as a source of fabrication knowledge.

Any chance you want to make your front wheels work?

Hey IronSS. Welcome brother. I鈥檓 new to the group as well. What part of FL you from. I get down to Tampa often visiting family and would enjoy seeing your car. I鈥檓 in the middle of a rebuild and working on my wheel approach. I鈥檝e gone a similar route with the wheels refinishing them with gloss black powercoat but I CNCed the lip, and rim. Have new caps that I鈥檓 playing around with - all black, black ring with metal center cap and black sticker and your approach with billet lugs. Would you mind posting some pics of the front and rear wheels as you have it set up? Also any advice on the grill. I鈥檓 adding a new 2鈥 cowl hood and my existing grill needs replacing. Here are some pics of my wheels for reference. Backs are widened to 10.5鈥 so to fit the MT315鈥檚. Finally - what size tires are you running front and back and are you using any spacers? Looks like your rear wheels are closer to the fender lip than stock. Digging the stance. Well done.

Hey there bud, Those are purtty馃憖馃憣 there, I prefer that look myself but my rims were curb checked & reconditioned on the lip x4 to be powder coated. I tried center caps a week ago after a year of riding with the lugs effect & didn't care for em so I returned em. My tires are stock size & no spaces, I just eliminated the wheel well moldings. As for the grille there's a US seller on ebay that sells oem gm grills (unpainted). Thanks for sharing your wheels man.馃
