It's been a while since my last post. I picked Betty up at the body shop yesterday, but forgot my camara. I'll post new pics. later in the week. There are some newer ones there now but none of completed job.
I am now in need of new shoes that match her new red dress. She is sporting 15 inch 6 lug rims and I have been told her feet should be larger than that at 16 inch. Can anyone verify?

So what about them shoes guys? 41 1/2 ton, will it have 15 or 16 inch rims? Betty is sporting 15's now but I have a line on 5- 16" rims for a trade.

16" rims were standard but 15" were optional.

Also note that 16" with tall tires will give you a bit more speed at a given RPM, an added bonus.
