Today I removed wheels and drums, to remove axles as a part of the process of doing this seal. only to find that i need new wheel cylinders and shoes -.- anyways all goods will order tommorow ill post a few photos for you guys to have a gander at

When you paint it metallic silver, like it already is....

IF you were too top coat with Candy Apple Red then lots of clear, it would look **** hot, for very little extra paint cost and work...

Probably be the only candy apple red courier in Oz! :lol: :thumb: :thumb:

Jus' sayin'. ;)
