Chat/Discussion Kind of like a VW club online - you can sit in our virtual pub and talk about whatever you want to. All opinions are valid, but please no insulting (other than to our intelligence,) abusive or libellous posts. Please feel free to post your opinion on any given subject, but also be aware that others have the equal right to disagree with you - and some will certainly tell you so. No 'For Sale' or 'Want To Buy' ads, plugs for your business, links to 'for sale' ads or Ebay links to your (or your mate's) auction (please use the VZi 'Classifieds' section) - this also includes thinly veiled "What's my car worth?" threads too (please use the 'Dude! What's My Car Worth?' forum) - and please don't use just to post links to other VW forums or websites - we are aware that other sites exist (obviously), but blatant 'plugs' (poaching) will simply be deleted.

Morning mate

What a ball ache when you are not clever with that stuff.

No beer. But a coffee and cheap custard creams.

Still a nice reward.

Just happy it is done now.

[quote author="@kevins" source="/post/2661562/thread" timestamp="1614077045"]They are going to look great, when is the big reveal?

Well....


More pics later as a tease.


I actually was on the driveway at 07.00 today, before starting work.


Have fitted and photographed two on the truck.


Some new wheel nuts needed, and centre caps to be figured out as the front hub centres protrude by about 70mm or so.



And more importantly, before selling off the Cragars.........




A SERIOUS BURNOUT VIDEO NEEDS TO BE MADE.



I really wish I had someone with a drone camera to film overhead and then it could be turned into a very short, well edited video with two or three angles being filmed.



The tame stunt driver would have to be @pauly as he knows how to rip the assssss out of assphalt



Remember this???


Paul came to fetch a work bench, note all the furniture on the rear.

So I got the wheels home.

Unpacked and rolled them around back.

A few random pics and my observations.

Firstly, the need a clean to remove the “glide soap” from the tyres.

Front and back. Powder coating allround. Only mounting faces left fresh n clean out the blasting cabonet.

Thomas told me the cabinet took 14 minutes to do a complete wheel.



Front side.

Note the way the light actually plays and lightens the dark Anthracite



Rear faces. Love the dark rim, great for brake dust and road grime cammo.



Also tried it with a repainted centre cap in place.



Then mocked them next to the truck.

They are quite a lot taller than the 17” Cragars. Around 45mm so a gain of 20-ish mm





All done.

Nicely stashed indoors. You dont want them to get wet now, do you ?



I must be honest I wanted to fit them but failing daylight was my excuse.


More later.

This is the look that I was hinting at, the dark outline round the centre cap looks pretty good to me
