Ahh, k. That's what I thought Very Happy

I've got a set of brand new never used beauty rings for 8" rims.

I don't like any bigger than 7" wide, myself.

Looks like a fun project & good score on a manual trans car. Beer I really like the 70, it looks to be a clean one for sure.

Limey, I know what you are thinking. Do I smell an SE clone?

I got the motor and 4 speed dropped in the Sprint today. I had the wrong motor mounts the first time so got to do it twice! lol.. The exhaust manifolds I had don't work so I will track some down tomorrow. The driveshaft will have to be shortened. My shaker scoop should be here Tuesday and I will modify my hood to make It work. I will take pictures and try to let everone know how It works out....... Thanks to the G3GM site for all the great info !!!!!!!! Scott

It does have a little rust but not bad. This car has the original paint on It. The rust around here usually is from mud in the fender wells that holds moisture.

Same here. Got 'em on my Monte (original, on the build sheet) and they were on my '74 Chevelle. 15 x 7 on both cars. They're such a classic look. But I only like them on a cars they could be originally equipped with.

I hate seeing a G4 Monte Carlo with them. Or a "BOX" Caprice. Or better yet, saw last week, a Buick Regal with them. Even seen them on a few S10's. Dun like it.

The shaker is 7/8" off center.... When I get the template centered in the hood I will drill the rivets out of the base , center It and attach It back to the base... I think I will start with the hole in the hood and then fit everthing else to that !!

I got a template from bending wire around the scoop then cut It out of cardboard.. I will refine It and lay the pattern out on the hood. According to pontiac web sites the scoop will be in about the same position as a Trans Am.. When I get It cut I will weld some 1/8" round stock around the hole lip to give It a factory look !! Any input ???????????????
