Done!?*!#%!!! (new pics 12/5/06)

Post by VA_Clod » Sat Oct 28, 2006 9:28 pm

How you all been? Yep I finally made it back and I actually got a toy done. Been having some stuff going on and haven't had a lot of time. Also ya can add me to the list of discruntaled JPS customers. It took about 2 months to get these wheels and then I had to drill 3 of the 4 to fit the axles. That's not all that's changed from the last time. I got a wild hair and pitched the old shocks for some Intgey piggy backs. Here's a rundown of everything.

JPS wheels
New Era suspension and steering links
Intgey shocks
Boyer push bar
light kit
Clod tires
One killer paint job laided down by my friend Allen, oh yeah it is purple

Hope you all like this old girl cause I couldn't be happier.

See ya.

Very Very nice, did you by any chance do something to the rims or stuff the tires with something? for some reason the side wall looks a bit curled over the rim kinda like crawlers do.

That's a *very* nice looking truck, I especially like the rims.
I used to think I was indecisive, but now I'm not so sure.

Glad you all like it, I think it turned out great. Yep those tires do curl over but I didn't do anything to them. I didn't know it when I ordered but they make two widths of wheels so I'm guessing he sent the narrower ones. I kinda like the narrow look anyway so it worked out. I'm glad this beast is done cause It's been driving me nuts waiting to see it finshed. I've had it 2 years and worked on it off and on the entire time. Now that it's done guess I'd better find another project huh? :lol:

Ah, I just noticed a flaw.

The spokes on your wheels are going in opposite directions. :wink:
