Re: Jeep-fab Beadlocks

The only place in my area that had a cnc plasma said that their machine was too big to do the bolt holes. So I went with the next best thing. :D

Re: Jeep-fab Beadlocks

Took a quick shot with the cell phone today of the beadlocks after powder coating and the back plates installed.

The lighting is not the best but you get the idea.
Now when the rims get done I get started on installing all of those bolts. 160 to be exact. :shock:

Re: Jeep-fab Beadlocks

Today I got back some pieces from being powder coated. The pieces will be behind the outer ring of the bead lock to make the letters show red.

Re: Jeep-fab Beadlocks

After getting the rings I took some time to add a little extra bling to them. What I decided to do was not just leave the letters open to the inside of the wheel. SO I made some plates to cover them from the back and I am going to get them powder coated Red like my Jeep. The rest will be powder coat...

They should be done sometime this week and I will post some pictures when I get them back. I found a fifth rim to match my old that I had from anot...

Re: Christmas came early this year
