My name is Jace, i'm from a lil place south of Melbourne in Victoria, Australia.
I currently drive a NA6 Mazda MX5/Roadster but i hope to have a KE25/TE27 someday soon.
Anyway, i have a wheel problem. That is, i'm addicted and can't help impulse buying from YAJ :?
The first set of wheels getting a resto are Star Sharks in 4x100, 14x6.5 +13
Here's some pics of what i'm working with
here's the other bits and pieces i have rounded up
and close ups of cleaning the bolts
after (soaking them in white vinegar for about 12 hours)
they're getting there
The set of wheels are currently at a wheel shop getting some work done.
This includes TIG welding the outer lips to fill the gutter rash, re-rolling the lips to fix the flat spots (one of them is so bad that the tire didn't hold air )
and finally polishing the lips and spokes.
i'll hopefully have them back in 2 or three weeks. While i wait, i'm going to have the bolts re-zinc'd locally.
i should have my meshies in another 6 or 7 weeks ( !)
The meshies are 14x7, staggered offsets like +9 and -3 or something iirc
i scored them both reasonably cheaply (about ¥50,000) which means i can spend a bit on them making them new again!
i also got some center caps for them which i'm pretty stoked on
thanks for viewing, expect an update soon!
