Chev. El Camino...Lumina

Post by raceface » Tue 18 Mar 2014, 13:28

For all the El Camino experts,......what's involved in fitting the 17 Lumina SS Mags to the elkie's.

What would you have to do with the spacing etc.

Thanks for the help.

Graeme's right.... Ugly ... But if you must they'll need spacers ,thickness depending on how far out you want them to sit ...
