right guys, just in deals with a company for supplying nuts and bolts for your splits, and dishes barrels etc. will be cheaper than prices you find elsewhere Thumbs up any nut, bolts in stainless, chrome, black or gold i can price for. the bigger the order i can combine postage to get it cheaper guys. so far ive got 5 sets waiting to be posted. so if anyone wants to get on them and ready let me no

next steps on the wide splits, the wheels in general where pretty doggy, look good in the photos but up close wasnt a great standard.

before photos, all dishes have kerbing or chunks missing, already sorted teh front too so heres a photo of the rears to see how they where

wheel refurbs, custom bits pinstriping and more!...... - Page 10 DSC_0459

heres a front dish, the black pen was where i had the lips welded and then i reprofiled them
wheel refurbs, custom bits pinstriping and more!...... - Page 10 DSC_0460


next up, these dishes have a very strange outter lip. most dishes roll over like bbs, these are very chunky, so with stretch rubber these would stick out loads, yet again very doggy edges and groves in them most teh way around, same steps as the outter edges on the lips. i can cut the tiny pitted bits out when i polish them.

and then the rear of the dishes, removed the crap old sealer ready for rebuild after the dishes are shiney and mint

first one down 3 togo. big rear dishes have a fair amount of prep before this stage. was going to put a picture up of the dish over the centre but will wait until the bolts arrive to get full effect B)

the lip prep was well worth it, will look nice with the stretched rubber, polished over the side of the lip too, very pitted but its shiney
