    I thought my 396 with 2x4 on a tunnel ram filled the hole. I was wrong.

    I like the Mickeys on the rear! Did you have wide wheels made for the wider tires, but also so you can run stock caps or covers?

    hello Gary,

    No bought them from Summit but they where back order for 18 Weeks , They have caps that mount inside instead of the out side . Guess I did the stupid and order the wrong ones

    here is what it said ,

    U.S. Wheel's beginnings go back to the early 60's with the family owned metal stamping facility. In the 80' we branched off with a small back alley shop and began manufacturing completed steel wheels. Now that we're entering the 21st century we have steadily and consistently grown to become one of the leading suppliers of two piece steel wheels in the country combining quality, strength and style with affordability. Unlike many aluminum wheel manufacturers that offer a steel wheel line only as a compliment to their aluminum wheels, our focus is on steel wheels - all types of steel wheels. We have a complete line of both painted and chrome plated aftermarket wheels.

    As the president of the I hate Dakota Digital Dash Club I have to say I like the above dash. Very tastefully done.

    Sid's new instrument cluster appears to be the Classic Instruments BelEra III model, but maybe I'm wrong? Hopefully Sid will tell us (he may have had them modify it for his purposes?)...?

    Its time for mufflers, so my guy working on the 55 say these are go mufflers to go with , Spintech Mufflers so That's what I ordered . I decided to order Stainless Steel ones . Took 3 Months to get and when I pulled it out of the box I thought what the hell . I was in Local 16 Sheet metal union for my first 20 years of having a job out of high school . We would have never left a stainless part raw looking like this . what do you think ?

    Add your time for polishing them...

    Unless you're building a trophy winning showcar, they will just be under there getting dirty and grimy anyway.
