Took me some time today to get my tires mounted, so I got started a little late. However the rear tires made contact with the rear fender. So I had to raise the rear. That took all the time I had for today. I managed to get a couple of pictures.



They have 205/45R-17 up front and 225/50ZR17 in the rear. I didn't figure the height of the two tires would be that differant. Kinda has a funny look to it now.

I wanted to paint the bumpers, but it took me a while to change the rear height.

Looking good Mike. You could always boil the 225's down to the nub quickly and fit a pair of 215's the next time

Well, I didn't really get any work done this weekend. But I did finally move the car to my house. I've lived here for a couple years now and this is the first time my Ghia has been here.

We might be going to circle yer wagons this coming may. I'll let you guys know for sure. I would like to have the Ghia there too, but that'll depend on cash flow.

I've been working an hour here and there on it. I finally got my harness in today. Now this is going to take a thread of it's own. But where do I put it, electrical or engine?

Wow Mike. I haven't been here in years, and I'm glad you're still chipping away at that Ghia. That's gonna be sick when you're done.

That makes two of us. Yeah, I'm still working on it here and there.
