The wheels arrived!

Yesterday I drove about an hour south to pick up my Wheel Vintiques that finally arrived from the US. Thanks SMI Trading for bringing them across the pond for me!

The plan was to get some Cooper Cobras for these, but apparently it’s currently impossible to get 275’s in Europe right now as all dealers seem to be out of stock.

It looks like I’ll have to put some BF Goodrich’s on them instead. They look great as well, but cost sh*tloads! 🙁

As today’s a bank holiday, I got some other stuff done as well. Apart from throwing the second coat of paint on the engine, I painted some other parts as well.

Hopefully I’ll get the custom made pushrods from Smith Bros sometime next week so we can finalize the engine build and drop it in sometime soon.
