    Tim, did you get a tracking number. I received an email on 12/6 that said mine shipped that day and I would receive a tracking number. Nothing yet.

    The tracking number was there or the parts were there?

    I have still been working on the Hot Rod but have not updated the thread recently. It seems that I get a few steps forward and then have to take even more steps back.

    The brackets and pulleys I bought for putting the accessories on the front of the engine are just not working out. They either don't line up or I can't find the correct part. So I started looking into the accessory package for the 350 SBC. When measuring I found that I was going to have to move the engine back a half inch so the pulleys can clear the steering rack. So last week I ended up pulling the engine and transmission once again. I had actually not though about how far along I was. It took quite a while to disconnect everything and get it ready to be pulled.




    This at least gave me an easier time in drilling and riveting in the firewall and foot box panels. I will also put the steering linkage and everything back together before the engine goes back in.




    Since I had the exhaust disconnected from the headers I pulled it as well. This way it will be easier to wrap the exhaust pipes and mufflers. I got the muffler and pipe wraps for Christmas so I was going to have to pull it anyway.

    You might check CVF Racing. That's where I got mine. They were very reasonable and excellent quality.

    Happy Happy Joy Joy! FedEx made a delivery today.







    I added the coke can to give some scale.






    I was not sure what was going to show through once mounted but I am happy with how it looks.





    I am happy with the fat and skinny look with the size difference.





    Now I have a new problem! One that I have never had before. The lug nuts fits down in a "tunnel". They are so narrow that I can't get a socket down onto the lug nuts to tighten them. I could probably buy a thin wall socket to get them in, but I would be worried about getting them tourqued. Any one have any ideas?

    I used a splined nut on my wheels, did two things, looks good, easy to install and hard to steal wheels! Well, that's three, your local wheel place should have them.
    20181129_200029.jpg 20180504_140900.jpg my tire wheel supplier also gave me the socket that goes with it when I got the nuts.
    Also, you should look into hidden valve stems!
    20180407_132403.jpg this is with the valve stem on

    Thanks for that info. I will look into them.

    As for the valve stem... AR puts them on the back of the wheel. Just about can't see them at all.

    Thin wall lug nut sockets
    See Amazon

    I believe HF has a nice set too.

    Thanks for that link. From that page I was able to find a singe socket that fits and ordered it. Sadly since it will only be used on the Hot Rod I have to add it to the budget. At least it was only $11.50.

    Congratulations Tim they look awesome!! Mine came with a thin wall socket. I checked and it fits down in the "tunnel" just like it is supposed to. So you should be ok to torque with it.

    Went to Discount Tire over the weekend to have the tires mounted and balanced. The manager really did not want to do them for fear that something would happen to the wheels and he would have to replace them. But in the end he charged me more and I got them done. Cost me $250.00 to get them done but they were good and quick.

    Funniest part was they were apparently the biggest tires that anyone had brought in. At one time out of the eight or so guys working there, six of them were working on my wheels.



    One group of guys were working together to try and get them on the machine. Turns out the machine they had it on was too small and they had to move them to a bigger one.





    In the end though they got them mounted.





    Everything came out balanced as well.





    All of this was also supervised by by best helper...



    She would not stop watching what they were doing. When the first guy came and took the wheel she started telling on him. "Grandpa, they are taking your wheels..."
