Yep, these adapters are worth every penny

The hubcaps will NOT come off

Well done.

Just remember,the draglites are thick and longer studs are probably a good idea.

Love it! Well Done! When you are tired of this look - you can paint the wheels to match the car paint or go Black.

Got the front studs installed last night.all the wheels are on and don't look to bad as is.I needed some gas so I took it to a station here in town that sales fuel with no ethanol. I have seen the aftermath of letting a car sit for a while with an ethanol blend and I don't want to go there again! On the drive home I had to find a desolate area and "nail it"I am happy to say the least.I'm currently trying a set of mickey thompson et street radial r tires. I know bias ply is the way to go on a stick car, but they are closing the gap with these! If you are in the market for new rear tires,check these out.As of right now sizes are limited, so Mine are 255\60 instead of the 275\60 that I like. The Chevelle also passed the beer bottle clearance test !IMG_20150605_164828_113[1].jpgIMG_20150605_165021_804[1].jpg

I re-torqued my wheels today and had to make a tool to get the hubcaps off! Just a simple bent tip screwdriver with heat shrink to help prevent scratches.If you do this hubcap adapter thing, you will need something to get them off. Dan,My favorite beer is Bud Light.beer.gif.   I'm working on some video, but the weather is great and my chevelle feels really good!!!:burnoutIMG_20150606_211259_264[1].jpg

 I'm posting this info so i'll have it where I can find it.Notebook paper isn't always available lol! And maybe someone else can use it for reference too.    Chevelle begining weight,3860# me in,full tank of gas,spare tire

chevelle so far after all the above mods,3740#me in,full tank of gas,

no spare(40#)  Total loss 120#s so far  On some other web sites I've read that unsprung weight makes more of a difference than removing sprung weight,some have said 1 pound of unsprung weight is about the same as 8 pounds of sprung weight.I'll take 120 #s either way! Next on the list is a Griffin alum radiator at 17#s and an alum water pump( don't have it yet)IMG_20150618_172928_862[1].jpgIMG_20150618_172941_373[1].jpgIMG_20150619_122254_933[1].jpg

Newest addition to the rear suspension are these QA1 single adjustable rear shocks.I didn't feel the need for double adjustable at this time.IMG_20150630_010648_563[1].jpg

Just thought I would update where I'm at on this project.It doesn't look like i'll make it to the track for any times but I have bought a gopro and will post some video when I can.I have bought some ET STREET bias tires to play with and mounted them on my old centerlines.Just as an added plus they do fit my belair also.After all the suspension work,the ride is so much smoother! it has become almost my daily driver!! You guy's up north probably never think of this but I'm contemplating removing my heater components.I honestly can't tell you when I have used it. The delete plates are available for a clean setup. If I make it to the track I would like to make it the same track just to "do it" at the same altitude as my best et I have so far. I'm happy where it is at but the "time" will tell if it's quicker than before (I think so).engine 015.jpgIMG_20150916_150353_292[1].jpg

Very nice.....I am a big fan of heater delete. I have built several cars with Heater Delete, plus the heater delete plates I currently have and have used are factory GM plates....not repops. It matters to me.

I say go for it.

Great pictures

Dan
