    anyone have plans so i can do this myself? I'd rather go buy some steel and cut the things myself than spend the money that I don't have on them...

    Why not make the home-made one? I am thinking of doing this, maybe someone will post up pics.

    That's what I want to do... when I said fabrication, that kinda meant home made. =)

    Thanks pauly... can't look at it now, but I'll check it out when I get home.

    Well I plan on eliminating my block soon, and will try the home made one where you keep your old hanger. I will take lots of pics, and try to explain everything well and make it real easy to follow.

    gravdigr, you rock... and the fact that your wheels patch the text on your website... I'm just speachless on that one. =)

    I'm headed to the yard this weekend, so I'll look for some of those... gotta find me a cordless grinder to use for the removal...

    lol, had to reread your post, you mean my wheels match the text? It wasn't planned. I was originally going to use that green on all the trim and have my blazer black. Now I'm planning on a flame design using flat military OD camo paint :D
