I didn't know if I could steal enough 45/40 lug nuts to make a full set. I was able to find 24 so that is what I used just to be safe.

That is exactly the info I needed. I was curious if that would work for a temp situation.

It appears to be fine. I put 200 miles on the steelies with the 45/40 lugs and re torqued them many times. For other 80 guys out there, the 45 had 16" rims. A stock 40 rim (15") will not clear the rotors on the 80. Interesting thought though... I CAN put the rims from the 25 on the 80 How cool would that be? An 80 with OEM baby moons!!

I was hoping you would catch that Did you also see that because it won't fit on the dyno, you get an N/A for NOx?

This is kinda like the people's republik of kalifornia and their CARB.
There isn't a majority that is against it. If you ask anyone you know, they are not bothered by this in the slightest.

Why'd you have to pull the bumpers and rack and stuff off? Did something change on weight regulations? I may have missed that.

I was scared it wouldn't pass and needed all the help I could get.

I was wondering the same thing. Gosh, I hope I don't have to do all that to pass when it is my turn. That seems like a bunch of work. How long does your emissions Pass last Mike?

Mike-
Have you ever thought about doing this? http://aircarecolorado.com/rapidscreen/ I've made a point to drive past them in the 40 so that (fingers crossed) I won't have to go and get tested next year.

Typical emissions on newer cars is every two years. But they only let the rapid screen count for one of those. So best case is you get 4 years without having to go to the station

Nice line there about "custom" not having to dyno. Define custom?
