Nice choice! I think they are some of the best looking wheels out there right now. But I may be biased.

As parts start to arrive, I am trying to make a little progess each night, even if just 20-30 minutes...

I am excited with what is going under the engine cover. The new heads for the engine should bump me up about 65hp at the rear wheels.
Competition Eliminator heads ported and polished. These heads flow almost 80cfm @ 25" water more than what is on the engine now.
