I need to get these out of my garage. I stripped, repaired, and repainted one wheel, stripped and primered another.....and that's where it ended. Just looking to get $80. Use them as spares, project, winter wheels, boat anchors, etc. The 2 that got stripped and repaired looked alot worse than the 2 that aren't before I started on them. $80....not sure if shipping would be worth it but I will leave that up to you to decide.

wow I think the one you repainted looks amazing. If I were closer I'd throw in some extra cash, have you finish em and I'd take them off your hands. I'm in the process of doing a similar job on my mod seven wheels same color scheme but I've just been a slacker lately and haven't been doing them

Thanks. Finishing them is not ever going to be on my list as my "going on 5 years now" project NEEDS to get done this year and still lots to do.

Somebody wants a dirt cheap set of LB's!

Those would've looked sweet on your car Ric! You know I would take them if we were closer. ;) How is that project going? :confused: Motor still good? You ever buy a 4 door under 25 feet long? :lol:

Agree the finished one looks amazing. If I had a red or black bug I'd be all over this.

Best of luck with the sale.

Nice! :jawdrop: That one looks a lot better than the one you posted before. Looks like your side job is paying well. :thup: I'm sure you have plenty of stories to tell about your clients. :peekaboo: :wink2: :lol:

Good luck on the sale of the Longbeaches. Shouldn't be hard at all. Keep us updated on the Galaxie.

Yes, plenty of stories!

The one finished wheel has about 7 hours in it from start to finish including stripping, repairing curb rash, priming, masking, painting, as I did the whole wheel, not just the face. I should have done them all at the same time, but I wanted to know how it was going to turn out before I took on the whole set. The rash on that particular wheel was pretty bad!

I am sorely tempted, but shipping's going to be insane. The color scheme would match my car, and I'd be willing to continue on with the paint scheme.
