Apologies TXOPIE: I took page 9...

I would love a little more detail on this project. Did you get the metal pieces made to mount them?

UPDATE: Al from Safelite came by and put in my new Front and Rear Glass:





Will have side glass installed once we finish up everything and drop her off the stands and get her back in the driveway...just easier for Al to do his work!

After reading much on wheel spacers versus off-set rims, I have decided to go with off-set rims...which meant I had to start looking again:

This is the correct offset and I think would look clean with the 12" rotors behind it:

UPDATE: GOT a set of these to install:




Just Kidding...never thought I would post a B&D DustBuster on my build, but there it is...it was the only good example of ALSA CORP's "Alsa SofTouch® Paint "


RUBBER - VELVET - LEATHER LIKE FEELING PAINT
Alsa SofTouch® Paint coating is a unique product that can create rich, soft feelings on almost any surface.

Ideal for any product that is intended to be touched; Alsa SofTouch® Paint coating transforms hard surfaces into new sensational textures.
Now the same Soft Feel paint used on cell phones, consumer electronic equipment & luxury car interiors is available in Killer Cans. This clear translucent coating is as soft as suede or luxurious leather but cures as hard as nails. Scratch, stain and chemical resistant; apply it over anything!

http://www.alsacorp.com/pro...fttouch.htm#showcase

• Automotive parts
• Handles, knobs & drawer pulls
• Gunstocks, pistol handles & forearms
• Furniture
• Helmets
• and much more....

That and these royal blue rims:


This paint is un-scratch-able and since I will be driving BluDream as a daily driver...it might make sense to go with this over Alsa Corp's candi cobalt blue Chromium Paint:


Please share your thoughts everyone!

UPDATE:

The drivers side panel is finished and ready for molding.


Rob started making the passenger side panel yesterday and He is already about 30% done with it.
He should be almost finished with the passenger side by tomorrow night. He will have molds off of them and be well on my way to completing the arm rests for both panels by weeks end.
If progress continues at this rate, with no problems, the door panel kits will be ready to produce by the end of next week!

UPDATE: NEVER Surrender, NEVER give up!

Still wasn't completely happy with the new options on my wheels after deciding on off-set rims over rims with spacers.

I really liked that BBS rim that I had found when thought about going with spacers, but only if they offered it in a 45mm off-set...

Well kept looking and looking and finally found what I was looking for and that was a replica that offered in different off-sets including 45mm & Half the Price!

I must know where you found these. It isn't every day my wife says, "Huh.... those look good. You should buy them." And since you decided against them, might as well share the love. Thanks.

It probably does, since he had his center console wrapped to match.

Yeah, I know it will work there. Not sure how it will look against the dash side though.

Car is looking great... However please be careful what you buy from Alibaba... I bought a professional video canon camera from alibaba for 1/2 price... Guess what, it never showed up! I lost a lot of money that way! $1,200 GONE! Be very cautious with where you buy from. If it were me I woulnt buy from anywhere but the US... At least you can do something about it if they rip ya off. Other countries not so much...


Car looks excellent stay at it bro.

Guys...Thanks for the compliments!

GADJet,

Thanks for giving the heads up in regards to your experience.

Sorry to hear about the bad Experience with http://www.alibaba.com.

Shouldn't hold it against the site...it is just the world largest site for international trade...so there are a lot of players on that board. Some good, some bad. I have purchased literally thousands of SIP phones via Alibaba over the past 10 years...my industry. Now the outfit that I am dealing with via Alibaba is one of the largest manufactures of rims world wide. They make rims for a lot of major brands you know (TRO, OZ, OEM, ETC) and pay high dollar for (all mark up).

Here is a secret most people don't know...when you see a rim listed as a replica...they are over-runs of the real rim...usually on an order placed by the company that brands them and sells them as their own. It is the only way that the factory is allowed to label and sell the extras on any runs.

UPDATE: Working on plastic upper plate for middle arm rest / console piece that traditional held the cigarette lighter:



I filled in the original hole and then cut out spots for my heat seat switches...using my after market power window switches as test, since they are the same dimensions.
This will be wrapped in the same black leather textured vinyl as I did on my 1st power window/ power mirror panel.

UPDATE: UPS Man dropped off my heated seat pieces!


Then sent me a single switch that has two separate rollers to control both driver & passenger...so instead of going through the hassle of exchanging it...I will rework my solution.

I am going to place my power window switches as shown below and then today I will notch out a hole for the heated seats dual switch directly in the middle of the two power window switches.

Which in turn leaves me with a clean pallet where the old power window & mirror switches use to sit. ....room to play...hmmm?

Oh becareful on this one. I know someone that was sued by a company when customs got a tip on a shipment amd help it up. Cost $10k when all was said and done. That is a common line used. I also know another that was told the same thing but he was buying brand name with "defects" after a run. Not true and was almost very costly as well.
