This is what happens when I'm left unsupervised with a chunk of metal and a bead roller... "The Flying H" My bead rollers throat was not deep enough to reach the center, so I had to cut it in half thru the center of the H and weld it back together.



Tires showed up yesterday so I had them mounted - the guys at Kal Tire couldn't understand why I would put the white letters in... it's hard to get old school tires like this in the sizes I wanted so the BFG
Radial TA's are an easy way to go, just can't get blackwalls.



Thinking I might do the brass thing on the Flying H too....

Love the flying H!

I did the same thing with my new tires. To get the sizes I wanted, they came in white letters. If it had been a mid 50s Id probably turned them out, but I like black walls better on earlier stuff.

I also vote for brassing the flying H.
You're doing fine, ZZ.
