That sucks. I know how annoying it is to have tires rubbing. I really hope Stangaholics does something fix the issue. I see them using that "test fit before you mount" in their defense. Even though it isn't even the wheel you ordered and paid for.

The problem with test fit and mount is.... when you are doing a restoration, it could take a while before you have your final suspension in place

Asshole still hasn't covered it. Every time I stop by he says two more days. I'm going to call tomorrow and offer him $50 bonus to finish it this week.

I finally got all the details worked out with Stang-Aholics on my rims. They offered to sell me a new set of rims, and then give me a $220 discount and free shipping to offset the loss I would take unloading my current ones on craigslist or a forum. Alternatively they offered me a $150 credit towards anything else in their store. Personally I think that is more than fair considering how long I waited after purchase to complain about the problem. I wish they had a better selection of classic mustang rims, but in the end I found the MB Old School in Gunmetal that I can be happy with.

The MB Old school wheels are awesome. I choose to go with Chrome myself.

It's great they are offering you a discount even after all this time.

I really like those wheels! Whata stand up company for cutting you a deal after a year.

Wheels came in the other day, got them mounted this morning. I must say they look better in person, I'm really impressed with them. They look nice and deep:

I like the way they look a lot better than the old wheel actually.

I dropped my console off at the upholstery shop on November 6th, which means he has had it for right at 100 days. They say good things come to those who wait. So after 100 days, I am expecting the most awesome console on the planet. I've thought of lots of euphemisms to express this console, but in the end... I think I'll just let the pictures do the talking:

Wow, thats seriously what they gave back to you after that long? Id be pissed, they should redo it and give you back your money. After making you wait so long for something like that. What did they say about it?

I refused to pay. I offered to let him keep the whole thing. He just complained about hard it was because it was such an odd shape.

I have no idea where to go, there are not many places around here that do that stuff. Maybe I'll try to find a shop in Atlanta or New Orleans. They are both much bigger and will have more options. I travel there for work at least every other month so I could drop it off.
