I'll post something on this list when I'm ready to sell - is that kosher by
the way? I'm new here, so I am guessing it ruffles no feathers.
I have my new bolt on hubs and mounted autocross tires ready to go. My
biggest holdup at this point is setting up road wheels and tires. I hope to
be done in the next week or so. Once I've made the switch, I'll get the
Minator knock off adapters bead blasted and powder coated (the chrome was a
lost cause after less than a year!) and they'll be ready to sell. The
wheels were about $1200.00 new, the hubs were about $500.00 for a total of
$1700.00. I'm thinking maybe about $900.00. Do you folks think that is out
of whack? Be honest and brutal, please, I'd rather find out I'm off my nut
before I spend $150.00 on stripping and powder coating. Thanks, Dean

Got a ballpark figure in mind for your Minators? Approx. when do you plan on
