Hi Skim,

Hope you don't mind me asking but, what are the specs on your wheels? Brand, width, backspacing, etc. I'm hoping for a similar look on one of my projects.

Not too sure on the back spacing but they are COYS. they are the 20x8.5 all the way around with 245x35 and 255x35 in the rear. thumbs up

Air deflectors found on 9 passenger wagons.
They directed fresh air instead of exhaust to the people sitting (backwards) in the rear seat.

yeah. The first thing that had to go was that red stripe. I also got a full length westy from Greg for it and its getting a set of chrome 5 spokes.











Sadly to say, The Texas Toast (what I called the wagon) is no longer that. It is in a body shop in Atlanta now getting a new paint job. The new owner who I traded the bus to is dead set on turning it into a show car. He couldnt understand why anyone likes patina.  tears
