My goal here was to integrate a superior sounding sound system that is completely independent of the car itself. It is run solely from the iphone. We have a restored original radio that will be re-installed with its own paper cone speakers to allow us not only to keep it original, for that original sound. The original radio does not put out clean enough sound to even consider running through an amplifier.
Custom painting and masking Torq Thrust wheels for a C1 Corvette
After looking at endless options of wheels, everything from EVOD to Schott, and back to the basics of American Racing, I ended up with the Torq Thrust wheels by American Racing. However, I wanted them customized/personalized to match my car. Check out the video below to see my process on how I painted the wheels to match the cove panel color of the corvette.
The car had Crager wheels on it when I purchased it. Both Crager and the AR Torq Thrust wheels were both available for this car, even back in 1961. So I thought it was most fitting to keep with one of those brands. There is nothing wrong with the Cragers, it was simply personal preference (mostly of my wife) that they were simply just too much chrome for the C1. I did agree, so that started the search.
I can not leave well enough alone with anything, I customize almost everything I have. Why would the wheels be any different? The outcome was exactly what we were looking for, and there is no one that has exactly what we have. Makes it easier to spot the car in a lineup…
