Just ordered up a set of rims. Premature for where I am at with it. But I got a stupid deal on them. Now I just need to figure out the rubber.

The grey or chrome style were quite a bit more $ lol. The car isn't staying white but rather a very dark blue or black cherry.

Well just got home from driving to Fraser and back to get front buckets and rear bench seat. Unfortunately not the seats I was suppose to get with the car per my arrangement at purchase. The seller refuses to answer my calls, texts, and emails. So I found some oe seats in fair condition and picked those up.

I also just ordered some floor pan sections to repair my troubled areas on the LF of the floor.

Take one home to test fit, then figure out rubber. Thinking 245/45-17 all the way around.

Good thing I don't plan to keep the rear axle for long. The studs aren't long enough to get more then 3-4 threads on with the nuts. Tires clear well all around. Off work tomorrow but Weds gonna mount some 245/45's and see how those look and fit Thursday. One benefit of working at a tire store lol, I can test fit stuff without paying lol.

I have a ford 8" with 2.90(?) gears. Its approx 61"s wms to wms. Gonna get a explorer disc axle with either 3.73 or 4.10's. With the intention on the drivetrain later down the road this will work out in many ways. Stronger axle, disc brakes, and a rear vss.
