REVISION 8/1: Brat Rebuild Project 99.9%!

Recommended Posts

Tomorrow should be the last day of the project. Install the hood decals, trim the front fenders where the new tires rub, pop the camper off and cleanup some over spray and install the toneau cover mounting hardware.

 

Here are pics of the new 205/75-15 General Grabber AT2's mounted on the refurbished Pug alloys.

 

QUESTION: Does anyone have a functional replacement lugnut suggestion for these Pug alloys? Preferably chrome.

Beautiful build!!! :slobber::slobber::slobber::slobber::slobber:

 

All it needs now is some serious off-road meats and some scratches on the sides! :lol:

 

J/k hehe I hope to have something that nice as a daily once I get back on my feet, then I can make my current brat a true off-road only beast!

 

You going to the WCSS?

Fenders trimmed, camper off, stereo tweeked, military star on the hood.

My friends I think it might be a wrap. Time for a cold pitcher of beer, a CAO America cigar and very possibly a roll in the hay with the wife.

 

Life is good.

 

Thanks to all who followed this project. I really enjoyed sharing with everyone. Now, about that other '85 Brat I have...........hmmmmmm.

Ive never been a fan of white cars, but this one has "the look" NAILED!! Absolutey beautiful, worth 16g easy now :banana:

The dark charcoal split spoke 15" pugs really set of the pure white paint and the camo graphics just set it a notch above perfect :slobber:

 

As for the lugnuts, I remember there being a Pug lugnut sticky in the wanted section I think, and I believe someone found some little adaptor washers that have the ball seat like the pug lugnuts, so you can use any Mag lugnuts with the right thread pitch....

I don't think those will work quite right, they look to have the standard 60 degree tapered seat, the pug lugs have like a 2 piece ball seat, they are kinda wierd, I had 8 at one point, but I sold them...

 

Check this thread, it has the info about the adaptors and other info
