I thought everyone did it that way....

I like it when they stick the screwdriver in the end of a pipe and lean on the other end of the pipe for leverage....

That's a professional right there...

Looks pretty good now. The wheels will be the same color. But, ya, the reason I left the orange off of the rims is for that very reason. I can change it up if I have to.

Here you go Andrew. This is a video of me in action. I'd have used the Cadillac to crush PQ's tire though, nicer wheels deserve nicer crusher cars.



I'm hawt.

With the minimal sidewall on these things, youd need a rail car.

22s no problem. If I happen to run over the wheel by accident, I can always beat it back into shape with my 5 lb sledge. A little bondo to finish 'er up.

Not a lot of "fabricators" have skills like that... Do you have to heat it up first?



It's nice to see you taking such good care of PQ
