Default Re: 1930 Roadster Volkster

It was a long Thanksgiving weekend and worked on the car a little each day...ok, maybe more than a little?

built a new shock tower for the rear.

Welded up:


shocks installed in tower:

Anyway the new wheel tire combo. Spider caps!

Went to a half dozen tire shops and found the combo I wanted. Spent two hours sorting through a mountain of steel rims to find these 15X6. Those are 225/75/15 for the rear...just shy of 28" tall. The fronts are 195/75/15. Almost an inch taller than the 165R15 tires that were on the car.

Adjuster, 2-1/2" dropped spindles with disc brakes, lowered ball joints (being pressed tomorrow), camber adjusters, lowered shocks and all new ends.
