    U.S MAG, Polished Rambler from MHT alloys or something like that. Greg at Pro Street Restorations can get them in for you. Just tell him you're after the 20" wheel you saw on Kris' HQ, he'll know.

    Why stainless tank? and not alloy? honest question
    It wasn't that much more than an Alloy one and i'm not too fussed about the weight difference plus it'll last the life of the car, will look different to your average HQ w/drop tank etc..

    Full tub? The '64 has stock (read: very small) wheel tubs in it now!

    I'd like to jam some 15x10s under the back, which I should be able to do with some "rust repairs"

    Krisr Can you please take some pics of the underside of the Tubs showing how they blend into the Chassis rails? Also keen to see the trailing arms...

    Never seen under a mini Tubbed Q before and just looking at mine looks like it's not really worth doing unles you modify the rails... But I'd definately be keen to do it if I can leave the rails alone like you have....

    Looking good dude!

    Beachball does good work...always think of the titty hat & pink val when he gets mentioned.
    an easy fix is get a mate to drive in front of you at 60 then 80 then 100 and mark in on your speedo with some liquid paper.

    be the same as commodores, only 1-2" of room, but opens up the possibilities taking it back to the rail.

    Yeah, you don't want to leave any sign that you've fucked with the rail, just bring the tubs right in to it. We got 305/40/r20 up in there with miles of room.

    So the rear end is pretty much done now. The lower arms have been cut off the body and they are now well inside the chassis rail. The bracketry on the diff was remade to suit, I didn't get any pics of the diff, but when I get the car back in a week or so, i'll post em but basically they are no different to a normal diff, except the lower arms are under the coil spring bracket from memory. I went for a drive up to put the gearbox back in as the front floors were replaced and had a good look underneath of what I need to do when I get it back.

    Yeah, when I get it back i'll be pulling the motor and box back out of it so I can repair the firewall, then diff comes out. I've got a lead on some cheap 295/50/R15 BF T/A's, need to see if I can get a hookup on 15x10x3.5bs prostars now. Anyone got any hookups @ Rocket? They quoted me $352ea and I asked whether thats retail or not... question avoided like plague...

    Sounds like this is the best price you can get on them. Beach spoke to mark and got the same price. Summit with exchange rate and some space in a container worked out slightly more, so if I can scrape together some coin I may go grab them this week.

    Soon for sale, complete set of weld prostars. Fronts are 15x7 with 205 tires and backs are 15x8 with 3.5" backspace, new MT 255 sportsman tires.

    So the tubs and boot floor are all done with a light dust of proofkote - looks stock as a fucking rock . Measurement wise i've got 330mm to play with and a mate of mine has a set of 295/50/R15's at his place that he bought mistakenly (and after quite a few cans) so I went around and measured them up and at the widest point they are 310mm, so i'll probably be helping him out and take them off his hands to put onto a set of 15x10 Prostars with a 3.5" B/S, so should have 6.5" of dish. They're nothing special, just BF Radial T/A's to thrash around in.

    Nekminnit! Need to mount the engine further back so I need to make adapter engine plates to the existing holes in the cross member to the Pontiac engine mount. A mate of mine has an engineering workshop and has said I can go raid their offcut corner for what I need. Also need to clean the block up as the paint has flaked off in areas and I wanted to paint it the correct Pontiac blue with POR15 and so on and so on and so on...

    The correct mid 60's Pontiac Metallic blue I hope! Such a stunning colour.

    Yep. Got a tin of it today with some 4:1 activator. POR15 stopped making the metallic apparently. This is something made by a mob called Eastwood.
