    Post Drop Loft Started

    I had a little time to start building my drop loft yesterday, so I welded up the ceiling mounts. I had an issue with the welder which at first seemed like a bad ground, but I’m fearing it’s a power supply issue (as you can see from the crappy welds). Yet another excuse to get a nicer unit.

    Post New Wheels Coming

    It would seem this place should be the 370Z Project, as lately I’ve done more to the Z than the Ghia. The streak continues. I got a set of wheels and tires on the way.
    I’m getting the 19’s, 8.5″ +21 up front and 9.5″ +10 in the rear. They are being delivered wrapped in Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 rubber, 245/40 and 275/35. Installed, they should look something like this.

    Post 370Z Wheel Change

    Ops department. I was wrong about the spacer size on my rear wheel. As a result, my measurements were off and a 9.5″ wheel is not going to be wide enough.
    Looks like I’m going to have to go with the Forgestar CF5 in brilliant silver; still 19 x 8.5 up front with a 245/40, but a 19 x 10 in the rear with 285/35 tires.
    These wheels are rotary forged instead of cast, so they should be much nicer in the long run.

    Post Drop Loft is Done

    Now maybe I can get the rest of the stuff out from around the Ghia.

    Well... I guess it worked, but it doesn't scale it. Might have to fix this manually. Boo...
