Had Ron from N.E. Rod Shop stop by and we measured the backspacing for the wheels. Finally got them in and on the car. Put 255-70-15 with 15 X 8 on the rear and 15 X 6 on the front with a 195-65-15 on the front. The tires are BF Goodrich T/A Radials. We have the rear tires mounted but the fronts are still on back order.
This weekend I test fitted the front fenders. I'm going to have my friend Ron from New England Rod Shop stop by and measure for the wheel backspacing. Then I can order the wheels. I'm going with American Torq Thrust. Can't wait to see the car with wheels on it!
Got the body back from the shop. It's now sealed so I can get it back on the chassis. We didn't fix any of the dents so the black sealer shows the car's "character". But this will allow me to get it running and on the road to work out the bugs for a year or so. I definitely got some looks towing it the 1/4 mile from my house to the body shop. I hope to have a few guys over tomorrow night to help get it back on the chassis.
