So i scooped up some 16x8 TORQUE THRUSTS for $300 (score!!!!) What 16” wheels combos y’all have ? W/ pics and I’ll love you forever. Hard to find pics on the web, all i see is 15x7 or 17”

That's a deal for sure. Did that include the tires? I don't have any close ups but mine is pretty basic. Legendary Wheel Co. styled alloy wheels. Basically a modern angular take on the classic steel styled wheels. They're 16x8 and I love the look of a bigger wheel on these cars. For tires I went with Toyo Extensa IIs which my tire guy recommended. I don't know much about wheels and tires but I like the setup for a daily. It came to like $1,300 for wheels and tires which now looking back on was not the best decision...

@2nd 66 @mrbreez I noticed your hoods, fellas what brand did you go with? as my hood is damaged beyond repair. (someone took my hood pins on my pin on steel hood at a car show) and it flew off heading home real late and didnt notice. Any response would be much appreciated 🙏🙏

my hood is a really rough original plane steel hood I had nothing to loose with so I cut a hole in it and pop riveted the Fiberglass teardrop to the louvers on the side I cut from an old MTD lawn tractor and spot weld them on.
My next project hood is a broken in 3 pieces 67 Shelby style I picked up cheap that needs to be re glassed together. Same thing happened you mentioned someone forgot to replace the hood pins and up went the hood breaking off the rear corners at the hinge locations
