Re: project: overtime dime

i borrowed some wheels from a friend so i can decide what size to run his are 20x10 with 275/35r20




theres about 3/8'' between the tire and frame






it lays out and clears everything withe very little room to spare so im probally going to get 20x9 for the rear and im going to go in early tommorow to try the front i doubt ill clear the firewall tho so i think im going to run 18s once i figure out my wheel and tire size i should be able to order them but im still deciding between kmc novas, boss 338s and centerline smoothies i also picked up a airline to go from the commpressor to the tank

Re: project: overtime dime

thanks im trying to get it on the road this summer my boss has started bitching about it being in the shop still and if i stay really late or go in when the shop is closed all i hear about is how much extra power im using he claims i doubled the hydro bill but really he forgot to pay one month then the next bill had 2 months on it
the other wheels i might look at is kmc stealths im not sure yet i just want to drive it june will be 2 years since i bought it and ive put less than 3 kilometers on and its never been insured in my name so as soon as i have some side jobs done im on this untill i run out of cash or its worth my time

Re: project: overtime dime

thanks guys i got the frame primed and painted last week and i got everything i need to powdercoat sandblasted on saterday and dropped it all off today so by the end of the week ill have my rear link bars shackles air tank and drums back untill then im working on running my wiring and air lines i should also mount my evap canister
im going to run hydralic lines for now but i would like to run hard line for the back half at some point i might look around to see what i can find if the price is compairable ill get hardline now rather than redoing my lines in the future and i wont run ptc except for gauges since the only other option is electric atleast with hydralic line it will take a long time to wear a hole it its fine around high heat and its rated for 25 times the pressure im running the only down side to me is that its ugly and exspensive at 8.99 a fitting



i should have more updates after work
