Working on some 17” wheels that will accept modern tires. Using outers from a Crown Vic p71 and centers from a Gamma Goat (20” split rims). A plasma torch sure makes some of this work easy…

Going to have the centers machined for tight fit against the drop center to hopefully keep runout to a minimum.

New wheels turned out great and run truer than the old. 40" tires balanced with 16oz of airsoft BBs.

1800 miles and counting...

Been fighting an random and intermittent failure of the accel pedal. Replaced all of the modules and sensors and even tried a different ECU, with no improvement. Checked the grounds too. Finally figured out a way to test for failure and found part of the wiring loom in contact with the passenger side head. No more issues so far...
