RE: H1 - DIY Double Beadlock Wheels
Definitely, I already have the new (to me) doors done in black. I sprayed them last summer.

RE: H1 - DIY Double Beadlock Wheels
A little update to this, I wanted to weld on a set of rock rings to stiffen up the bead area and protect the studs.

The guy I purchased them from took mine, and a few other guys money and ran. So begins the joy of getting it back Angry

On the plus side I found another vendor who is cad designing a steampunk gear style ring, which should be cooler anyway, and something you wont see anywhere else. Hopefully I can finish the wheels up in the next couple of weeks.

That sucks about the guy taking your money but I'm very interested in seeing those steam punk rings.

RE: H1 - DIY Double Beadlock Wheels
I sketched up a few different designs, and it seemed like the simpler design would fit the look I'm going for better. Less steam punk more industrial.

So here is my sorry excuse for a cardboard pattern.

Reminiscent of a m113 drive sprocket

Great Lake Offroad is laser cutting out a set. I cant wait to see what they look like in metal.

Nice that allows for good drainage too.
