    BTW, with an appropriate final polish on those US Mags Sabers that US Mags was apparently too busy to do properly or was done by some kid they just hired yesterday (??), just sitting up against the car for visual reference, they are going to look freakin awesome as $3500 wheels should of course.

    Sorry, the car is not remotely ready for web presentation or I'd take a pic with the wheels sitting beside it and post it. Though dumb from the 4 wheel rotation standpoint, I think the 1" diameter stagger is precisely the look I was hoping for.

    Not a bad way of doing it....just have to remember to blow the line out just to be safe. I always use electrical tape....wrapped very tight, then chop it with a set of AN wire cutters. I've built alot of lines and this method has worked well for me. Just like anything, if you have the right tools for the job, it makes it easier. I have a set of AN wrenches, adj AN wrenches, vise clamp, and a kool tools kit.

    The only time a mechanic has touched my car clear back during the warranty period they put a big ding in the rear hood molding along with a small chip in the fender paint nearby but then naturally said they couldn't have possibly done it. So, along with some other stuff, I noticed that Gbodyparts had them so I ordered one. Unfortunately, it is flat black. Am I supposed to like paint this thing with chrome paint? I have the same question in to them too but haven't heard back yet.

    If so, any one have special tricks, lessons learned etc.?

    thanks a bunch . . .

    Also, since I decided to do the converter caps for my Saber wheels so I can put SSIII 442 caps on them, I splurged and ordered a new set of caps from Gbodyparts along with a new turn signal lever since all the chrome is peeling off of mine [too]. $220, not cheap, but so glad I did. The 30 year old caps looked a bit out of place on these new wheels and these new caps look like they belong. They are not quite done with my converter caps [Monday now] so I'll snap some picks when I get them.
