You don't need their expensive wheels. Once yours are cleaned up and your nicely lowered Bonnie sits over them, it'll look just as good. Well, not quite just as good, but very good. Well, it'll be okay looking. Look, it's gonna look like crap, but that's just bad luck.

No, of course it'll look just right.

thanks for the pep talk !! haahaha... 

i had a dream.... but not to be! they would certainly look cool, but i just got rid of my mortgage, :rofl:, am not keen on another!:rofl:

I can tell him how to keep the baby moons on the front wheels. I lost at least 6 of them before IU figured it out

I'll bite. What's the secret?

I finally made a cardboard template of the profile of the hubcap.  When I compared it to the bump on the inside of the wheel I found that the "locking ring" on the inside of the hubcap was right on top of the bump in the wheel. I went in with an air cutting tool and reprofiled the bumps in the wheel so the locating ring on the hubcap was inside the high spot. They stay on so well now that it is difficult to get them off. I will post a picture if you like. 

Right now I am all consumed with the electronics on a god forsaken old mercedes POS. I have come to believe that the only good mercedes is one that has been through the crusher and is on its way to Japan to be turned into a Lexus

No had to come back early N left days late for our vacation, waiting for the promised washer N dryer.  They did not show up last Thurs as scheduled (for the 3rd time)  We were headin for the cabin and using that as a pivot point to check out some of our favorite Northern Mich towns.  Traverse city, Cadillac, Petoskey, Kalaska, Houghton and many small mom N pop shops/attractions along the way.  Hunting season does'nt start til October 1st.  I did clear some of my shooting lanes (branches,bushes anything that would effect my arrow)  Put out some cracked corn, apples.  Shot my bow a number of times.  Did some plinkin with my 22 revolver.  Finished cleaning up and stacking the wood from the trees I took down in July.  Saw many Grouse, 10 turkey Bussards on a roadkill deer and a Mom Turkey with a few young ones.  Massive storms left most of the 2 track roads covered in huge puddles, all hills were washed out leaving huge gulleys. Downed tree's.  Made for some awesome 4 wheelin with the truck.  Few times I was wishin I had a winch.  Chain was enough to move the largest tree  JUSTenough to get by.  Got home late last night.  

Finally got the damn appliances @ 9:30 this AM.  Of course had to make a parts run for gas line adapter for the dryer, drain hose extension for the washer.  Momma is attacking the mountain of clothes from the last 3 1/2 weeks.  Have a carshow this Saturday.  Hope we can get the Rivy buttoned up and fired so my daughter and son in law can attend the show.  New rebuilt motor.  To do list does not seem to be getting smaller.
