Have finally arrived home from my 8 weeks touring the globe. Spent 4 days in Miami & Key West. Hired a soft top Mustang and had a ball. Very jealous of all riding around with no helmets but only saw one Fury for the entire time.
Picked up my Shaved & Chromed rims, thanks Stump they look great. Had some fun getting them back to Oz as luggage, firstly the front wheel wouldn't fit in any suitcases that I could find so I made a box out of a LCD TV box that I found in Key West. It worked really good and survived better than the cases in the aircraft.
Long story short me the wife and 100kgs of luggage all arrived home safely. First weekend the wheels went on, very easy job. Made some special tools so I didn't have to take off the Cobra exhaust.
I did slip up though and didn't see the "O" ring on the inner wheel hub. Had to pull it all off again today just to put in the "O" ring. Will check the parts diagram next time instead of being a typical know it all bloke.
The wheels look great on, the wife loves them and even said it was money well spent, though she is still a bit shitty on losing 30kgs of luggage (shopping) space on the way home.
And the pictures of course.
Wife & I...
I polished the rotors, mounts, axle spacers and the ABS sensor disc. They all look like stainless. Time will tell. If anyone out there is contemplating polishing the front disc I would advise not to. It was the worst thing I have polished ever in my life. $80 to have it done by Stump is a real bargain.
Thanks to the following people on this forum who made these wheels reality;
