The wheels are the best thing on the car IMO. Laughing

Only kidding mate - the whole car looks great. You're a real master of modifying now.

Stick ya glasses back on Tezza! Late model wheels belong on late model cars, leave the classics alone.

HQ Monaro ( REBORN )

Post by homers customs on Sun 15 Jan 2012, 10:56 am

Gday all i got bored yesterday and decided to give this one a makeover.
The V8 supercar block remains but supercharged now, gone are the late model ford rims and replaced with the original HQ rims and lowered the suspension as much as possible.
Hope you like.









Cheers Homers customs.

looking great, I prefer the old style rims but that's a matter of personal choice, have you ever thought about widening and changing diameter of rims to change things up ?

Thanks mate. The motor came from a V8 super car and replaced the injection with a blower and i use a dremel tool for cutting my bonnets out.
