  11. Matt When I bought the tyres for my car and they were supposed to be black walls (I got them for B/W price) the fella told me then that the next lot of B/Ws would be more expensive than the then current price for white walls There was a huge price hike around that time Plus the $ conversion was not in our favour
  12. As long as you didn't need bridging finance mate That's the killer
  13. Start in the center and tighten in a clockwise direction Do this in 3 stages 15, 30 and 45 ft lbs Don't over engineer these old cars as they were made fairly simple because people those days were not as smart about mechanics as we are today One only has to look at they way some of then were repaired to realize this
