Sorry to see you have to sell Paul. Seems like a good deal for someone.

Below is a list of what's left.

- Install radiator aluminum
- Intall front and rear wheel well aluminum
- Calibrate speedometer
- Mount doors and door latches
- Install interior carpet
- Install weather stripping and seal cockpit from wheel wells
- Install louvers

That's about it. I'm typing this as I think about it, so it is not a complete list. Basically, there's nothing left to purchase, just work to do.

I edited the original post, so it contains the new price.

Oops. I forgot about the wheels. They have no center caps, so you'll have to buy those if you want them. I was planning on eventually getting pin-drive wheels, so didn't bother to get the center caps with these wheels.

As David said, it's as simple as unbolting the 15" wheels and bolting on the 17" ones. Just need to make sure the backspacing is correct for pin-drive width.
