Forsaken, you prolly already know about 32vNomad swapping to a Mark8 engine. He's got a thread going with a 2v to 4v engine swap tech instruction PDF he made while doing the work. It might be helpful to you

2v to 4v New Edge Swap writeup

Re: What Did You Do To Your Sixxer Today?

god i can't wait for the new wheels to go on...the wife and me priced some new rubber for the starfish wheels...keeping 245's on the front and popping some 275's on the rear.

now i got to decide if i want to do the rear panel...any opinions? here's current setup and the panel on my old car...which looks better?

keep in mind the top pic has 225s on the back and the bottom pic has the same 275's im putting on this weekend

U don't have to.
Just gives it another layer of protection and even more smooth. Throw a towel on the part of ur hood where it starts to slope if it slides off that's what u want.
