Powdercoated z28 wheels on my bagged 66 eye rolling smiley
Posted by: 66AirVair ()
Date: September 27, 2017 06:43AM

So I found a set of 84 z28 wheels fairly cheap in decent shape and decided to have them powdercoated. They actually look like a nice aftermarket wheel now.I cant wait to get them on the car. I purchased the McGard 64011 lug nuts and new tires will be here friday so we should be good to go. Mounting and balancing will be done Saturday and I have a car show Sunday so more pictures to follow.

You got MAD skillseye popping smiley. Love it. Maybe I'll learn to fabricate when I "grow up". ( I'm thinking about retiring next year and may enroll in a welding class).
Thanks for the pics and explanation. Cool car!!

66airvair, I noticed going back through your bagging post in the picture showing your air tank in the trunk there's no brake master cylinder. Do you just drop the body to the ground to stop? LOL

Looking good! How much to have those blasted and 'coated? They will be a great addition to your Custom Corvair. thumbs up
That puppy is really scrapin', for sure! You could come over and mow my lawn!

BTW, might want to make a signature line with your name and location. We're fairly friendly around here...., well, mostly. smoking smiley
Be nice to know the name of the Mad Fab.
