    New rims!

    Hey Ed! and all the other Great Lakes Cougar Club members. Finally, after owning my car for 7 years, and having 14" crappy fake torque thrust style rims, I now have this! (details in the wheel and tire thread)

    Very nice... and it looks like you have done what I am planning for my 68... well there goes the uniqueness, but I am still going to do it, especially seeing how nice it looks completed. Do you have any more pics? (So I can use them for inspiration)

    Thanks Udo, I'm going to a show tomorrow, so I'll load up on pics!

    Wildthing, I have the 77 Granada power disc setup in front and drums in the rear.

    A random question for ya... did you have to fab up a trunk prop to support the trunk and spoiler, or were the stock springs strong enough?

    The stock trunk springs on mine are strong enough, unless... there is a strong breeze coming from front to back then it droops a little. It never closes though.
