    Default Fancy Mustang V6 Spinners

    For my new rims I decided to purchase some ford center cap spinners (they do not spin as that would be just plain tacky). Picked them up off of ebay for a steal. lol They are going to look great. :heyhey:




    Still :waiting: for my 1.5" spacers to arrive.

    Well, the spacers came Tuesday, and I received the center caps today. I began installing the spacers and was surprised to find out that on my drums there is a taper that stops the spacer from sitting flush with the drum. So, my dad will bring two spacers too his work tomorrow and shave some metal away from the spacers, hopefully letting the spacers sit flush with the drums. And there is NOOOO way that i will leave these new center caps on the wheels at all times because they are waaaaaaaayyyy to easy to steal and they shine a lot really catching others attention. But I hope to have them on for at least some cruises and photo shoots.

    Drool Wheels Installed...With Some Night Pics





































    I didn't install the spinners because they will be too easy to steal. The install went smooth after my dad shaved the spacers a bit. I think the new wheels really make the car look that much better.

    I put it on it. You buy a universal one then melt it to fit over the pillar molding. I have also done a single pod.


    its a huge PITA to accomplish and i did it twice go figure.

    That is still up in the air. Around SF09 time a major event (the Us Open) begins and the company I am involved with starts working. I, still not a full time worker, would love to brown nose them as much as possible... So I will see when the time get closer. My goal is to work with them over the entire summer so I don't know at the moment but would love to come.

    its a huge PITA to accomplish and i did it twice go figure.

    And just to add...you trim the gauge pod first, then you heat it with a heat gun and mold it to the contour of the pillar itself. then you trim each end (cause melting stretches and you want a clean straight end) then you silicone it to the pillar. then drill holes and etc..the rest is simple. i am debating whether or not to put back my spare pillar with the single gauge pod or just but back my other spare with no pod.
