Since minilites are cool on their own, why put anything else on, unless you like 5 spokes or chrome, or you want to modernize with wider rims and tires.

You’re right. I bought the minilites for my cars because they are different and wanted to stand out. Only other wheels for this car that I would consider are rally’s or Machine wheels.

Got the new front shocks in last night. Old ones were totally blown out! No rebound at all. Also, broke a fender clip but. But, I struck gold when I got six out of my parts carcass at work!!

Jake -

It's getting there. 

Once you drive it some more, you'll get a better idea if the car needs anything.

Though I think you're right about getting some gauges in there until you sort through
the original cluster :)

Got the 15x7 rally wheels blasted and painted. I’m going to try Cooper Cobras for the first time. 225/60/15 up front, and 275/60/15 out back. And I can use them on both my Javelins.

Got the tires mount on the rally wheels. Had to go with 235/60 up front. Took it for a spin last night. Very impressed with theses tires!
