The pieces are finally coming together! When you’re busy, even some of the simplest tasks become complicated. You’d think putting together wheels and tires would be as easy as bringing it to a shop to get it done – and it is. Except I make things harder than they actually are sometimes.
I had to order two new tires, so I finally got my lazy ass to text Alex to see if he could source me some new ones. Boom – even delivered to Jackie’s shop for me. One down. The next piece was the valve stems… I wasn’t about to run red valve stems on the new black TE’s – not that anything is wrong with it, but it just wouldn’t match the look I’m going for. In my plea for help in trying to find black Rays valve stems without paying $100 for shipping, Errol said that he had some spares. Boom – Errol gave them to Jackie for me. Next was just dropping everything off to Jackie’s to get it done. Isaac finished it for me at lunch yesterday and that was that.
The point of all this is that I’m thankful for the friends in the car community. I mean, I could probably have gone and done all the picking up and delivering myself but I probably would have taken months to actually do it. It’s just the little things that matter – I’m grateful for that. I’m pretty sure the car would probably have just stayed on jack stands this year without their help.
Anyway, just a few quick shots of the wheels. I’m just waiting on ONE MORE big piece of the puzzle before the car gets to go back on the ground. It rhymes with “Dig Drake Bit”. Until then, it remains hoisted up with dusty ass panels until I find time to polish and wax it for the start of the season.
That blue with black is SO good. I never thought I’d love black wheels ever.
Match made in heaven.
Can’t forget the titanium valve stem caps from TiBurnt. They look so rad and the blue/purple works well with the blue Rays/Volk stickers.
Just a mock up. As you can see almost impossible to get a good pic LOL. Underexpose all the things!!
