    Well...depends on whether its a steel or aluminum wheel. widening aluminum, you use a new piece from an outer shell that 2 piece wheels are made from. Turn the two pieces to interlock to keep them aligned during welding. Then weld the 2 pieces together on an automatic rotary welder, then skim cut on a lathe.

    Just kidding man. You were working on yours while I was going to town on mine on the Fox talk side. Now that the forums are merged, I'll just have to find a different way of saying it when I start mine.

    Someday,...when ever the stinkin' car gets here.

    Ok...I'm going to have to post some progress just to get 5.0 Ford Guy's "Chester the molester" van out of my page view. BTW...this is probably the reason 333 haunts you....LOL!

    Went over the whole car again looking for paint perfection. Also worked over the engine bay again. Finished boxing the driver side frame rail. Rear wheels are almost done.

    Also got started on another set of Recaros. The foam is in good shape...bolt holes, not so much. Nothing that can't be fixed pretty easily though.
