or #2? Not sure if this will fit my rim, but it's flashy
#1, only because the text on #2 is hard to read, especially when moving.
I got my windshield an hour ago, It went in much easier than my brothers '62~

Got the wheels back from the sandblasters, I thought they were painted at first! After loading, he told me that they also do power coating. Figures, I didn't ask how much, but I'm set up to do what I'm going to do with them.
Perfect place to paint wheels, and they stands they're on spin easily epoxy, paint, the matte clear.
these are 9" wide
This one wheel is at least 1 or more inches narrower~ I don't know if I should use it, or use it as a spare? just with a smaller tire? 8" wide
^^Obviously it would work as a spare.... Although my OCD would kill me that I did not have 5 of the exact same spec.
my thoughts exactly!
Hi Dne'... looking at page 37 of your build (previous page) I notice your 7 or 8 bladed black fan...and I really like it... I would like to get rid of my stock 4 bladed one on my '69 Dauntless... I want one that moves MORE AIR.... where did you get it..? Real nice job you are doing... all your work is very well done... I am enjoying following your build postings.
I sent 1928 an email regarding the fan I used
Derale Performance Plain Stainless Flex Fan
Thank you for the wonderful compliments! As for the fan, check the link above~ as for the spacer, I'll have to recheck what I used, I bought a 1 1/2 first, then to a 1" bought from amazon. But if you're running the big HEI distributor, it won't clear the vacuum advance, unless it's clocked differently. I had the HEI, but didn't like it and went back to the stock distributor with the Pertronix upgrade.
I hope this helps!
geared up to paint epoxy Just can't make up my mind to do these in gloss or matte
the tops of the stands are ball bearing and spin easily, great for painting wheels
Thanks for the Likes!
Just waiting now for the rim decals, I went with the Matte finish~ Going to just clean shop for the rest of the day~ Wiring harness came in, perhaps Monday I'll start on that
Just to add to your thoughts on the 'spare' wheel. I rotate the 5 or 6 wheel/tire combos I have for my rigs while driving them - all part of the process. Mine do get wheeled more than road work, but the even wear helps my pocket book justify buying them when they get low, and I keep them all in good shape that way.
Nothing worse than having to pull out the spare and finding it flat because you haven't used it since you bolted it on the carrier.
You have all the best toys.... I'm gonna send my stuff over shortly
Well done with the wheels. They're black, but I dare say classy enough for this crew.
I like the matte that you chose over the gloss.
Nice work as usual.
While working on the wiring, I put the windshield/frame back on I really don't like wiring, at least it's nice and clean everywhere! Ok, back to LOST (3rd time around)
Darn, I was doing all that painting and forgot about the air cleaner
If you are on the book of faces, reach out to michael. He has a bunch of the wheels you have. (For your spare)
If you are not on FB, PM me and I will give you his cell #. I have purchased several parts from him. Responsive and fast.
Thank you Eric! I think the wheels I have are 9"? and the ardvark wheel is 8". I'll recheck, but thank you so much for the contact info!!!
I've got a pile o wheels too if you don't find what you need there.
Those are not the same wheels she has. Hers are an aftermarket white spoke, those are later model factory CJ white spokes.
