If your not using the wheels and tyres Al and want to part with them I'm keen on them.
When I built my one I glued the panel under the grill in before painting that allowed for smoothing it out easier. Wink
Great kit that although it shows it's age goes together really well.

Checkmate,there is only two rims and four tyres in kit that's why the change,is was a cheap kit from the states,was not worryed about missing rims as was always going to change them as the others look to ugly.Was going to put panel in place before I painted it.There was another set of rims and tyres in kit will photos and send you a pm they are close to the kit ones but wider.

when to silverfox's place today to show him the vette van,we talked about the rims that I was going to go with,he said they look right at the front but to small for the rear,we looked in his stash of rims and found a cool set of centrelines so will be going with them on.Ya shunter its a old one sould look good once done.
