Just placed my order!

Are these killer? or what! This is the 2nd set of "Wide 5" alloy wheels fabbed up then powdercoated by talented dude named Mark in Denver. He was kind enough to accept a request from me to build five more- in a different color scheme. I intend to enjoy them on my haul'r; going to roll with these custom wheels in place of a Fuch set that's on the VW single cab now

The 1st set (tested and proven under autocross racing conditions) is very similar to this set; polished finish rather powdercoated. Those wheels are on a 356 outlaw creation that Mark collaborated on.

nose "redeux" on double door panel

the nose was "cracked" during delivery to previous owner- his transport driver failed to tied the bus down properly inside the transport trailer...

i decided to have it fixed ...

upon removal of paint/filler material an "oilcan" situation revealed itself. decided to have metal "re-worked"

primer has been applied/wetsanded (allowing proper curing between applications) a couple times now to build up a "base"...

"anthracite" color will be re-sprayed in coming days ~

autosleuth progress...

both peach & the notch are being nurse'd along by "dr. tim" and his assistant "dandy dave". looks like the notch will be back on the road before peach- as the guys in cali are slow to make the special order replacement axle components
