Thanks Porter!!! Same here, I can't wait to see yours done as well.

As of now, we are using a set of 18x8.5 et35 with 215/40-18 tires from my MK6. Granted these specs are really not setup for a T4, but we using this wheel to figure out offset and turning challenges. We added another inch to the top to at least give us a half inch clearance with a 19 inch wheel. The fab shop wants me to run 20s, felt it was too much, so they are making 20s work if I even wanted to in the future. I plan on running 17s with a thick tire.

Believe you me, we are encountering the same headaches. Every inch we cut, there is always another issue to address. We are going to take our time. We have a debut date of the 19th of April to get 95% of the metal work completed. After that we will revisit the front wheel tubs and inner door skins, then possibly the gas tank.

It's crazy, but you know exactly how it is. Pleasure chatting with you.

I'll try to come here more often to reply sooner. TTYL!
Bernie
