That will make your life a lot easier in the long run.
You do some very nice work, and that always takes longer than you think it should.

Are you using the solid panel, not the one with the cut outs, now that you made the strips?

You were going to get one no matter what.
The taller front tires probably won't get here and mounted, until the end of next week.

matts37chev I am pretty happy with what I ended up with, the new tires are tall enough that it doesnt look too ridiculous.
Here are the rears on the car
