Got this 65 chevy kit for valentines. I don't have much time anymore to build but, I have body dropped it and I want to turn it into a dually with semi wheels, which aren't as easy to find and when I did find them they weren't very cheap.. I decided to make my own using 3/4 pvc pipe and cutting them to the right width and used a router to rout the lip and channel of the wheel.. I'll have more pics of me building the wheels

Got a little more done to the wheels. I used a pvc cap and cut it to fit snug, I just have to make the center section and drill the holes. It's a lot of work but my time cost me nothing and I have a total of 5 dollars Into all the wheels once they're done.

I've been working off and on a '64. Won't be a dually though. Body dropped and custom frame. There lies the problem, the frame. On my third design. Can't wait to see what you do here.
