satisfactory, Bill. Please proceed



kidding aside, Bill, the wheels look great. I recall discussing wheel designs with yousome weeks ago and these far exceed what I had expected you to come up with. They have a unique look, one that I'll wager to bet required an extremely tight tolerance to avoid life in your scrap barrel.

Very impressive [again :o ]

Hey buddy, yea when we were discussing this , i had no idea how I was going to come up with some thing even close to what I wanted, they are not exactly what I wanted but I do like them, this is more or less a prototype to see what would work or not, there are a lot of cuts on these trying to achieve the desired look, I think I can make another set with a lot less work! I think they are going to be worth the time and effort that I have in them, the new M/T's are exactly what should be under it! man they are fat!! :D I love the looks of all that meat stuffed under a car! as all ways, really appreciate your in put, your opinion is valued my friend

I concur, those are fantastic looking wheels, nice design and great craftsmanship.

Those wheels are awesome Bill. I'd love to have a set or two of them.

Mike,thank you!

hey Jon, I do have some friends who do resin casting, Im sure they would help me out if I asked, the thing is , they would only fit the super wide tires! thanks man

You know, over the past couple of months I have tried to spend less time on the computer and more free time at the workbench getting projects done, but when you do that you miss these jaw-dropping, mind boggling builds. Bill this build is beyond speechless. I can't wait to see more.
