    a learning experience is one of those things that says, you know that thing you just did...don't do that again.

    Thanks guys! Sorted out the drill press and finished the roller mod.






    And i'm getting my hands on a groover hopefully tonight to give my tires a haircut. Squeeze one more season out of them. Thinking something along these lines. I'm curious about trimming into the base a hair too but not sure how thick it is. Sketchy??? I know people have done it with boggers a bit but......

    Ya, still waiting on from my buddy. Not even sure what exactly it is. Lol

    And not much done, mostly just head scratching how I'm going to tie everything together with the rolling and narrowing. Josh hooked me up a CJ hood to botch up. Lol. Thanks again buddy!

    So this is basically where they're gonna sit minus some hood cutting.





    Trimmed up the cowl to follow the window bar for some mounting tabs.

    You got some life out of them eh

    Cut PBR's are even happier PBR's

    Let me know how much rubber you find underneath,

    I'm thinking there is a sufficient amount if the 3/4 inch bead is any indicator.

    I can also measure the unmounted ones here if needed likely and get a rough guesstimate,

    I did these with an Ideal knife and #5 blades. A couple runs of #6 between the lugs would really wake those up if they still hold air

    Sweet thanks for the pics buddy! What ever I'll be using is showing up tonight. Supposedly he tossed in 2 thin and 2 thick blades and the machine has 4 settings. He said use setting 3 and don't force it, let the machine do the work. I also asked him about cutting into the carcass and he said he'd use a chisel and a torch if he was to do it. Never used or even seen one so should be interesting. Maybe I'll test it out on some of the new SX's in the shop to get the hang of it. Lol

    easy to use.... just let it work for ya. What we did at work was fasten 2, 2X4 to a work bench, coming out about 2' and place tire in between and start cutting, rotate as require, you will find being on rig is a pain as you need to go from side to side. Plus gives you space to put your beer down.....

    Well that was pretty painless, mind you still have 3 to do. Left them on and was about 20 minutes a tire. Wondering if I shouldn't have gone right down the side biters and put the little blade on for a cut on the smaller side biters. We'll see, didn't want to get too greedy.

    How long did you look at those side lugs before that came to mind.
