idk ameen....its looking TOUGH AS SHIT with the 245-40s front and back! hahaha

 

i rolled the passenger side front with a bat, started the passenger rear with the bat too..

 

finished both rears with an eastwood roller today....holy fucking dickwork batman.

 

im pretty proud of the way it turned out....first time rolling and rolling with the machine. i did a shitty 10 minute bat roll on the 240 in the dark so that doesnt count.

 

i mostly just flattened fender lips, made a very slight pull, and did a ton of work to the inner fender. the tires tuck in perfect. its a little wavy, but whatever. its gotta get painted anyway so ill throw some filler in to smooth it. it doesnt seem to be rubbing but i still gotta put the car thru the paces. maybe hit the rears with the roller again tomorrow.

 

pix later tonight.

i rolled and pulled the fenders all around on my jzx90 withhh a pipe and did AWESOME job!

 

ive tried using the PBM fender roller and took forever for it to setup and did a shitty job compared to a 5 minute job that the pipe/baseball bat does and has better results imho. only catch is the ride heights/pipe must be proper size for it to have good results.

the thing with a bat or pipe is it doesnt allow you to get the inner fender ridge out of the way which is probably the biggest obstacle when fitting large wheels and tires. i agree the bat/pipe method does work wonders. its easy, fast, done with the wheel on. fit check = remove bat, lower jack, feel around, jack up, try again.

 

fronts rub a ton. may have to make use of g's fitment guide.

 

im gonna go make an ms paint about the inner fender ridge now. enjoy my new pics:

the red part is the wedge, its about a foot to a foot and a half long front to back in the inner fender. that might be slightly exaggerated but you get the point. its gotta go and be rolled smooth to the blue line that i drew.

i had the luxury if just smashing that ridge in hard with a sledge when i was doing bodywork to my rear fenders, but that would probably fuck up the work you did and cause some problems. so yeah, might be a good idea to roll that in.

 

don't forget about subframe continental shifting, that fit is awesome but it's almost sure to rub hard if you go push it.

i called them up to ask the guy when the 18s were back ordered till, he said they had 3 in ohio, which i (and he) assume means the computer bumped them out of the online system. the computer default is to sell you 4 of whatever you select, wheels or tires. so there MAY be a single 18 available if you want that...hahahaha

 

travel? whats that? hahah id say ive got at least 2 inches of travel.

so i had the front end jacked up today, wheels off, bleeding the front brakes, and i did a damn good job. so good infact that i was bleeding the back brakes at the same time as the front! AWESOME!!!!!

 

 

 

brake fluid EVERYWHERE. gettin under tomorrow to see what the beef is....my guess is a rusted and ruptured hardline. hopefully its only one of the rubber soft lines.

 

 

 

for every step forward, i feel like im taking 3 back....

I will sell my house and live in the car before I give up on it, the only problem I seem to have is buying stuff I don't need (rear window visor) instead of stuff I DO need (clutch and transmission parts).

 

In the end, your car and the others keep me going, so keep up all the good work.
