Re: Satin black paint ??
The wheels are Cragar D windows, 15x7 up front and 15x8 out back. I've always liked the look of them, especially on a blacked out car like this one. I don't know if they are NHRA/IHRA approved though.
The paint is a tractor enamel, so its tough as nails, but it is by no means a conventional finish for a car. I wasn't building a show car, just a reliable daily driver that might see some racing, so I didn't want something too nice. Plus, it was my first paint job, so ease-of-use was a primary factor. All said, it has a nice smooth finish, and its not so flat that it looks like ratty primer.
