faruk850 01-11-2010 06:45 PM

haha i tried man i tried, it was cold and i was in a hurry
but i'll get it right next time just wanted to see how it looked.
how do you get paint off the tires?

Manbeard 01-11-2010 06:46 PM

thats what he means. mask the tires off. you could use some tire cleaner to try to get it off. next time, get some index cards, and shove the edge between the rim and tire so you dont have to do that.

faruk850 01-11-2010 06:52 PM

ahh so thats the secret index cards. thanks, yeah i'll try to find some tire cleaner

Thanks! Good luck finding those wheels. :P Best luck is in Sweden or Norway. Since they are swedish made. The production ended in the second half of the 90's

Gonna be lot of work to get that overspray off tire. Use making tape/cardboard. Or use pro painters tire cover.

I know, I've given up on them really. But I was drooling over all the ones I saw when I was there for Vallåkra this past August!

It'd make it a ton better if you just sprayed the tires black now

gloss black so you dont have to use tire shine.

Haha I actually tried that on my old wheels. Looked kinda sketchy but not too bad.

looks kinda cool, stance is okay but what's with all the gadgetry and cage for something that doesn't even make that much power? m46 is a dead giveaway that it can't be that fast.

Lynn780 01-12-2010 05:05 PM

Yeah, im sure its still a Fun car though!

Shifter position and basket don't look like those of an M46 though. Maybe it's a swap and the shifter was reused?

I was just thinking here: I would like to weld a M46 shifter on the base for the T5 shifter, so I can make it look more factory.

Even if its not that fast, you would still want to keep an eye on all the stuff going on under the hood and why not put a roll cage in if you're tracking it?

i suppose, i mean the car is fine but i wouldn't call it inspiration.

that car makes me want to get it that low, and it shows you can fit wheels that are wider than 7.5 inches in the back fairly easily..
