Whitewalls?! :shock: Gag!

Paint the steel wheels gold to match the van's side stripes. Use your chrome trim rings and buy the stainless, (or chrome), lug nuts. If you can get chrome center caps, that'll complete "the look."

Please don't put whitewalls on that van. It is simply too cool for whitewalls.

Nah no whitewalls for this. Blackwall's are the new white. :lol:

Took the rack off my bus today (after failing to clear the car portch roof :lol: ) to check damage and get ready for galvenizing as it's rusting up bad.

Done a mock up of the front additions to see what she'll look like, thanks to Ham for holding the stuff up:

Image

Sprayed the visor black to suit the other black parts. Got to make some brackets up for the visor, modify the stone guard to fit as it's off a '91 deli, and drill some mounting holes in the front of the chassis for the bull bars (is that legal?) and she'll be sweet. Stick the spare on the front for that gypsey/roma look.

No real update, just a bit of a wanted add:

WANTED!

Some of those Starion rims that seem that America seems to be over run with. If anyone has a set, please let me know.

They look like the ones in this pic that I borrowed off city hunter (cheers bro):

Image

Oh, and a pic for pic's sake (you know they'd look good on this):

Choice!! What if they went via boat fright instead of air? Surely that'd be cheaper?

last I checked we dont have boat anymore because of the gay us govt. I think air is the only option now. I dunno though.


ips says if I could put them in a 18x18x32 box and assuming they all together weigh in at 85lbs or so ti would be
378 for shipping via air to auckland.

Ok, since Starion wheels were a no-go, I got some Prostars in 14x7, and put some 185's on them.

Image

Image

I like how the front offset is, just sticks out a little bit, so might get some spacers for the rear so they all line up, as the rear hubs are recessed a little bit.

Image

Rims need a bit of a tidy up, but nothing major. I like em!

Also replaced the window that fell out.

The tumblers in the igintion barrel went as well and the steering lock stayed on, so after a bit of fun with the hammer and a flat nose screwdriver, I freed the steering wheel and am relocating the igintion to another place for lol's and keeping the original barrel where it is just to confuse people. Not that anyone steals anything from it, I had to wait 2 weeks for a replacement window, and used it everyday to go to work, surfing, etc and had no problems.

And took this picture of newschool/oldschool delica's at work a little while ago:

Yeah, the ones that are made in N.Z are called L300's too. JDM, or imported one's are badged as Delica's. The newer version are L400's. And L200's are the old utes.

If you're bugged by how it looks, finished sanding and filling in any other rusted out areas and then spray the whole thing with primer until it's ready for a professional repaint. At least then it'll look uniform.

That's the plan joe.

Got some of these lil bad boys at Beach Hop (one of the biggest hot rod fest's in the Southern Hemisphere held in my old hometown of Whangamata, N.Z) a few years ago and never got around to sticking them on anything untill today:

Image

From this:

Image

To this:

Image

Image

McLovin em! I heart moon eyes.

And done a rushed primer job over the stuff I striped cause it was gona rain:

Image

The current thought I had for this week is straigtening it out then primering the whole thing in Kakhi-coloured primer with beige/tan stripes.
