Turns out all the falkens that were on it had destroyed beads. Lame.

Next up, rust repair. Damn rockers.
step 1: cut out rockers
step 2: replace with rectangular tubing and tie into unirails
step 3: enjoy never having to worry about rust or rockers again

Thought the rockers were in good shape. My 86 is fine. Everything in between is a crap shoot.

No shit Sherlock.

My lovely wife thought you didn't need to wash a vehicle in the winter for a few years, they are still there, but they are going away.

Tires that were ordered ended up being on backorder, two separate times with two separate kind of tires with two different companies.

Ended up just going to Schneider tire. Turns out the beads were wrecked on the falkens somehow.
