Note a few things in the above pictures....

The valve stems line up with the "wing foot" on the Polyglas, also lines up with the gap between Mickey & Thompson.

Original type of black valve stems & has the correct "Dill" valve caps on the Polyglas fitted rims.

All wheels are weighted on the rear so the outer rim has the "clean look" & are easier to maintain.

Lee apparently thinks I have OCD, however while I am still working on the car he prefers to call it "attention to detail".... Shrug

As far as looks go the MickeyThompsons are surely the better look. The goodyears look like something you float down a river in.

You guys need the experience of driving a car that has the horsepower & torque of Q on these wonderful examples of GoodYear technology... 😉

I believe those types of "experiences" are known as "near death experiences" Poke

Lovin' your "attention to detail". I thought I was the only weirdo who did that sort of stuff (on the cars that are worth it). My wife thinks I need professional help because all the screw heads , phillips or flat , all point north/south along the body line of my cars. One of many OCD things I like.


(PRAYER) Oh thank you Wild Turkey American Honey & Cola in those small thin bottles, for giving me the strength to act like a half wit, and say stupid things at inappropriate times, semi-anonymously, on a public forum.
Amen.

Does that mean that half the screws are loose and the other half are over torqued? Poke

Just drive slowly so that everyone gets to see a true classic.

The polyglas for me, no point in doing a car to this level and sacrificing the wheels. IMHO it would enhance the car as it was meant to look.

I can understand the restomod guys opinion though, but hey this is going concourse no? It's not cutting laps of the suburbs to pull chicks. Even though it will.

Great work and a great inspiration.

Cheers

The M/T are for driving Digger and the polyglas for the shows. Since I havent owned a car like this we decided that having decent tyres so I dont end up around a tree was a better idea than having correct rubber on the streets. Not that I will be street racing it or anything but i just think it gives me a little more margin for error. Plus Id hate for the insurance company to say i told you so.

Fair call, Lee.

I'm glad you want to drive it. I want to do the same. After all Ford sold these cars to be driven. We're just keeping the dream alive! Let's smoke those ricers.

Cheers
