      Yeah 3/4 are done. 1 lip and the hex nuts are the only things left. They told me 14 days at the max for the wheels to be done and it was very unlikely it'd take that long...so lets hope I get a call tomorrow.

      Wheels were supposed to be done yesterday but they didn't call me back to pick them up. Hopefully the phone call comes today. I'll have pictures of them up asap. Also, I got Keith's euro trunk so that should be on as soon as I get it.

      I got the wheels back today, finally. They're more creme than tan that's for sure, either way I like them. Here are pictures.



      The hex cap isn't polished yet.

      $300 range for everything to be blasted and powder coated. I'm sure there are cheaper places out there, I just couldn't find them in my small area. One other place that was supposed to have "great prices" wanted $500.

      Thanks!! "Vanilla" I guess is it's technical name and the place had the color because they used to use it for model T wheels all the time back in the day haha. It worked out, I just can't wait to get them done and on.

      hahaha I still need to finish them, the slow process is bumming me out. Actually one face sucked so I took it back to the powder coater and they're fixing it. Soooo I'm praying it's not another three weeks until I get them back.

      Wheels are back again from powder coat, well they have been for a little bit. I'm going to put 3/4th of them back together this week, hopefully seal them too.

      Here is a picture of my monster truck, it's lower than in the picture the drive way angle sucked. It's going lower though.

      A pretty weak update here: The final lip is sitting on my lap and being polished as I surf the world wide web. Then it's time to torque them down this week and seal them. Then finally, it's tire/spacer time.

      Here is a pic of the rears, the fronts are now done just not together yet.

      Coiln, depending on time I might be able to let you try on my 15's and 10's for testings. It all depends on time lol. Worst case you can do like I have in the past and just get a stack of washers to push out the wheels, then simply measure those. I've done that countless times, helps eliminate a lot of error for me I am guessing though that you will need like final et 20 rear and front is like 20 as well lol.
