Finally got the wheels and tired mounted. Got a nice deal on the tires, 235/60/15 fronts and 245/60/15 rear Cooper Cobra's $452.00 for all 4. The wheels we're a direct trade for my old ones. Go craigslist.

If anyone in the DFW are is looking for tires, Id be happy to share my tire guy :)

The rear needs to come down maybe one inch but what a change in the look. Need correct caps now, 135 is a bit steep though for caps.







Got the family in the car at the local pumpkin patch...its a festive photo

Thanks! Its getting there, wanted to make it drivable for Good Guys this weekend in Ft. Worth. Try to make it out there on Saturday. Dealing with a brake fluid leak but cant find the leak, the master cylinder just keeps getting low.

Im off the original topic here , but dont forget to check for leakage out the back of the master cylinder - into the booster.

Highly possible but then wouldnt it be getting into the intake and burning? Either way plan on pulling it to check...good idea.

Thanks for the compliments guys. It was a good swap I think, the tires on the torq thrust we're shot. Just got lucky finding someone who wanted the torq thrusts. The magnums are not 100% there is a little bit of crome flaking on an inside ridge where maybe some water had sat. Otherwise, I just sprayed them down with windex and put new valves on them.

Its cool because I walk outside and look at it and it feels like a completely new car I get all excited to drive it again!

Here is one more...one of my new favs
