Looks Uber nice as always. Did you recently spray your tails?

Your front wheel looks alot more spaced out than the back. Ever think about spacing the rear? http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Galvatron, it's funny you mention that about the rear wheel spacing. Mike, aka, bluerrrabbit was saying the same thing. First off, what size spacer do you think I'd need and where could I get them?
Thanks!

I think H&R makes them for A1's. I would say the more the better cause it looks like the difference is alot (probably 30mm or more, but any will help) although then you will have some rubbing issues. Did you roll your rear fenders yet? If not you will want to do so. It just seems strange that the fronts would be so far out
Do all four wheels have the same offset?
Another trick-a$$ thing you could do is customize your rear steelies to have a deeper offset than the front. I did this on my '64 Notchback. We have a place locally that will make custom wheels. What I did was bring in the factory 15" VW wheel and had them weld the wheel center into a 7" chevy rim with a 4.25" back spacing.
Here's a pic of my Notchback with the custom made wheels. They charged like $130 for all four. http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif
