are you going to repaint it?

better to put in a propper patch, so it wont rust through 2 months after you paint it

 

Yes only the bits that have been repaired will be repainted yellow 

respray is on the cards for it but in years to come

 

define a proper patch?

ive cut it out just past the rusty patches then welded in one single layer steel but thicker than standard.

Have had to wait for floor paint to fully cure before placing any sitting items on the floor.

has been 6 days since first coat so were good to go.

just got to be careful not to scratch/chip it now

fuck no!

Not after all that money on paint and the time it took to do it.

would look real shit with skid marks through it too

the driveway concrete is quite shitty though and will get replaced one day 

so perfect candidate driveway

Fresh painted concrete floor is so good to work on. I swear I'm sweeping our garage out 3 times a day

cheers

I did look at doing that

but the wheel would require the the current holes being slotted or new ones drilled on the wheel

and some holes onto the bosskit and threaded.

then the wheel cover which holds the horn in place would require the same work but some of the current holes overlap eachother. 

could work though.

but the boss kit for the wheel is also shorter too which is good as the current wheel and boss combo sit quite close to you even with the seat right back and the seat on a G lean.

^^ this is the wheels boss kit and how it would of been suited for the car.

also this is a well made barry spec boss too  

so all that would need to be done is the current holden spline to be cut and removed.

and a starlet one to be welded in its place.

looks like a easy option to me.

or get a different wheel
