    That looks proper! Perhaps to install one of your spares for the front on the spare?

    Twas done at the install today Tom so yup, spare for the front, can of puncture seal for the back, and yes, the old tires were like gravel compared to these. Although all four rims should be sent for straightening.. balanced out fine, but show there age when spinning. Another winter project.
    And got my screens, and a couple grab bars installed tonight.

    These are held on via 1/8 set screws currently but Iím going to find some thumb screws instead so I donít need to find an Allen key every time I want to install them. Also fold down for tonneau use when I donít want to actually remove them.
    Think they just are the icing on the cake and make her look ready to race back through time..
    The passenger grab bar also doubles as the glovebox door support when open so I need not add a chain and the potential rattle inducing by product there of.

    Damn near completed men.
    Exhaust install Monday!

    You may swap that archaic rear diff to one (Toyota?) with a higher ratio.
    Might work the same for less work and dough?

    Internet down in my country yesterday. Love technology.
    Ya know, I didnít expect it but the car seems less windy in the cabin with the mini screens then the windshield..
    The air goes straight up and around your head and back, with the windshield itís more cross draught and buffety.
    Also makes each mile seem faster too, hehe.

    Wife isnít convinced but concedes she looks very racy this way.
    All thatís left is some British bling to be added and wait till Monday for the muffler. Hereís hoping it gives me the reduction I want!
    Cheers.

    I love the look of the mini screens but not with the main one folded down in front.

    The internet was working just fine for me here yesterday. I did hear that credit card/interac machines and banks were having trouble here.
