+1 Pretty cool you’re making the centers yourself AND the fact they’re going mimic Ronal Turbo wheels in 17x8 form, is awesome. The picture of your 242 and Homers 244 is great, 2 outstanding 240s. Wish I were closer to see these things in person.

I just can't get bored with the thing. It feels like the car and I are in an abusive relationship sometimes but thrashing it around makes all the pain worth it.

Thanks! I can't measure up to Homer's car in a lot of ways. His is polished to the max and is damn near as a good of a driving experience as you can have in a 240. Mine still has a long way to go.

Same. Did some partial assembly this evening to double check measurements on stuff and I'm now ready to weld up the axle tubes. Also spent a few minutes final installing the ring gear onto the carrier. I'm running a ring gear spacer to make up for the incorrect carrier break LSD I have so I decided to install stronger fasteners than what is generally supplied with a rebuild kit. Probably not necessary but gives me a bit more peace of mind.

I think you’re on to something with your take on the six spoke wheel.
