When we started there wasn't two wheels that matched, but with a bunch of work all four rear wheels now match. In case anyone asks about this wheel company I am going to leave the x and y coordinates to show them how far the wheels were off.  shocked  Tony

Hi Tony

Did you chuck them up and take a face cut off the back side so they don't wobble from side to side ?

As the center might be off of center.

Don, You don't miss a trick, we did have to take a small cut in the back to true them up.  Tony

Trent, As promised here are some pictures of the first part of the cool suit tank (hopefully my wife wont see her missing cooler) that my friend is fabing up for me. The last picture is of is welds that look like a sewing machine did it.  I will post the motor and pick up and water return line pictures later.  Tony

The secret is the fit up, really nice job and it looks like .100 material which makes corner welds like that possible. Tony, with the "driver comfort" things you're going to have you planning to camp out in the car? Whats next a cup holder?Huh!!!!

You guys are a rough crowd.  tongue Call me a sissy, but I working on using a Volvo washer pump to make a drink box.  If it gets too hot in line, just push the button on the steering wheel for a cool drink.  Though not bad as some of the ALMS and NASCAR guys that use air conditioning systems.  shocked  Tony

Rex, Looks like I wont have to build the drink box after all.  I was at Huffaker's shop the other day and they gave me this setup they used on their Trans-Am cars.  It needs to be cleaned up and the lines replaced, but it all works, and yes it uses a Volvo washer pump. Tony
