Finally worked on the car again.
I stripped the tires off my rims and bead blasted them.
After tires removed:

Nice and dusty:

I weighed them and compared to a 13" steel wheel. The MA61's are 1 lb heavier. Steel was 15.5 and mag was 16.5, but the mags gain 2 inches in width and an in added in circumference.

I plan to paint the insides black and polish the face / lip.

Darn nice of a paint job for those wheels! I don't think I'd go that detailed into it. :tu: :tu:

What kind of paint did you use for the grill and the wheels?

For the grill, i used an aresol can of plastic paint (forget brand). I first pressure washed the grill, then took some fine sand paper to it, so the paint had something to stick to. After painting about 3 good coats I put the polished metal bits back on. Its been over a year and it looks great.

The ma61 wheels were sand blasted, pressure washed, wiped down with mineral spirits, and primed with an aresol sealer type primer -rustolium , then painted over with cheap automotive gloss black aresol -duplicolor. The rim will be painted again with a clear.

Painting - Its all in the prep.

Those wheels look great! Probably the nicest set of Supra wheels I've seen in a while.

I have been getting some work done. All 4 wheels are painted and cleared. I ended up putting a clear on them. it added a glossy appearance, but im ok with it. Here they are complete:

Image

I am able to get the car in the garage to work on it now, so thats a plus. I mocked up the rims on the car. Rear will fit PERFECT. I am going for a filled out wheel well and the rear cant get any better than this:
Image

Image

The front are close. They stick out less than an inch out of the front gaurd. These are 7.5" wide wheels, and I will run a 185-60-r14 Falken Ziex ZE-512. I should have a little stretch going on so they might tuck in nicely.

There she sits until i beat the dreaded California SMOG!

Just reread through this whole thread again and realized I posted half way through commenting on my '79. Unfortunately it was a total rust bucket and I sold it to a friend who desperately needed some cheap transportation. It's currently still around and hopefully one of us will be trying to save it here, worst case scenario it'll end up back in my hands.

Good to know the 14x7 Supra wheels fit as well as they do, I'll have to keep that in mind should mine ever end up back in my possession. Good luck with SMOG, luckily we only have a visual emissions here in my county, gutted cats pass with flying colors!

Here is how it did at the smog shop. The guy first told me it would probably fail. his manager came over and made him re test it when he saw the CO%. He then laughed and told me it smogged better than new cars. My corolla is now on the road. Let the fun begin.

I also wonder why they did a tsi (two speed idle) test on ur car... There's to traction control they should've been able to run it on the dyno.

I have no idea about the tsi. It ran so clean because it had a brand new Weber ca smog carb, New ca cat, New exhaust, New muffler. I also ran seafoam through 2 tanks of gas before putting that all on. I'm just glad it passed. I may put my high radio rear end in next.this thing screams on the fwy.

The performance is much better even without a tune on the carb. This one did need an adapter. I made one which you can see in my thread, but most new webers will have one included. Mine was an odd size which they don't make anymore. If you go with a weber, make sure it is CA legal if you plan to get past the smog shops.

I don't think they make CA legal ones anymore... Maybe they do not sure... But I'm going to be tracking mine so it doesn't matter haha... Do u think headers will help too?
