I think they would look sharp on the wagon Tom. Regardless, your wagon will make almost any rim choice look good! thumbs up

That is always a sharp looking wheel, I especially like it on an EM.

I think, for your wagon, a set of LM style wire wheel covers, or real Dayton chrome wire wheels would be the cats meow.
The job you are doing is absolutely beautiful beyond words. Keep on keeping on. Well done.

I was considering a set of Dayton's with a custom offset for the drop spindles on the front. (After installing in car it added an additional 7/8" outward of the spindle face)

These are about 1k, the Dayton's were pushing 4k. At this point, I am going with the these. I could in the future do the Daytons and in about a day have drop spindles and swapped.

I have a nice set of basket weave bbs that I could have used but I think they are a bit to modern for this car.

Tom, did you repaint the engine inlet air plenum above the wheelhouse? Its visible though the taillight opening, but not easy to access. I made some tools and drill motor extensions to clean in there through the taillight hole, but I'm trying to figure a good way to paint in there.

Thanks,
Wade

I painted that area black, in the way back areas I used a Eastwood internal frame spray which has a "whip" type fan spray.

Worked on trunk wiring harness, replacing anything I did not like to look of and added a dedicated power wire for the headlights with relays.

Was not thrilled with the replacement turn signal sockets. None of them provide the two plastic clips that hold them in like the originals, even the ones from clarks. It just relies on the pressure of the metal tabs making contact.

Now you are going to make me go look for an original 61 or 62 front turn signal socket, as I do not remember ever seeing one of these sockets that had plastic clips in addition to the metal clips. The metal clips have to grab the metal surrounding it, as that is the ground path. There is a single plastic pin that locates the socket into the hole. Maybe I've been spending too much time on late models...grinning smiley

There were two squeeze points that retract the plastic clips when removing the plug on mine.
