Default I found a Badger in my garage

Came home from work a few days ago and found this Badger in my garage. It took a while but it finally made the trip all the way from Oregon. It is a little different looking then Pat had it. I have plans to have it painted this spring or summer. I am kind of going for the cross between "Stock" and "Stock Car" I am still tring to decide between the Black rims, or the stock grey color, or color matching the blue. The wheels are 15x7 rear with 225/50/15 and 15x5.5 front with 205/50/15

Those front wheels look so sunk in. Was there any work on the fenders to fit the 18s?

It is a little deceiving in the photo. but it is all stock. the front wheels are a 20mm offset, so they do sit a little bit more in then the 7's on the back with the 0 offset.

Love that color, same as my 244. Only did that blue for a couple years and it's a good color.
That's a nice car, looking forward to seeing it nicer.

Nice. Legendary car. I am also a fan of that shade of blue. My wagon was that color.

I bought the tires used, and the guy had them painted already. But I was looking for white letter tires. They say that Testors oil based model paint works well. I will let you know, because these need a little refresh on them. They say to wash the letters with acetone first. it helps the paint stick better.

The backs fit nice. The fronts are a little small for my tastes. Overall it looks surprisingly good.

Edit: guess i need to change my sig...

Yea, the 205/50s are a little small. But they don't look as bad in person, as they do in the photos. I might have to go to a 195/60 to get a taller tire.
