Thomas, that's also a gratifying experience I can appreciate!smileys with beer


But now come to think of it... my Brother put cheap bias ply tires on a Geenbrier he briefly had 30+ years ago. I remember asking him how it handled. He was a bit of a lead foot!hot smiley I remember he said he said that when he really pushed it hard around a sharp turn, he could see his own tail lights!!!grinning smileygrinning smiley

Yep, that's my Brother! Today he drives a 2017 $tingray!

Your brother has good taste and deserves an appropriate vehicle for his lead foot. Good for him.

When I original purchased my 61 GB back in 1980 it had bias ply tires, and I remember being terrified going through some turns. My stock purity ends with radials.

I had bias ply LT tires on the back of my Corvan camper for a while. The rear tires would shudder as it skipped around aggressive turns. My buddy loaned me a set of radials and it was a whole new world.smileys with beer

I will. As soon as Moto sends me his cradle. Rob never replied to my solicitation to acquire his unit. Understandable.Being a Trump hater trickles into car stuff.

Can you elaborate on this? Are you using a product to remove the surface rust?
