the rims are custom made! the entire car is restored. i think the rims look good being as everyone has racing rims that are made for tuner cars. i know the yellow marble is ugly but its just a top layer the blue marble underneath looks better. but it was his first paint job. no ones scorpio is perfect everyone has their own style! if you look closer at mine i have 31" mud tires on the back for the snow!

You should have used the rubber v/c gaskets instead of the cork ones.

Oh, so you're the expert now? You think the cork ones are going to hold up any better? No, they won't.


I wouldn't waste my time with the cork ones, period.
