HAHA no not THAT kind.  It was a Reynolds Food Packaging plant.  They made plastic containers.  We got a few pieces of equipment from it when it closed.  Sucked since all the directions were in French.

PLastics?  injection molded or vacum formed,i was in the buisness for over 15 years,and an injection molder,and moved on to mold and die maker.
renolds sounds familiar...i think they were famous for the renolds wrap..

Yes same company as Renolds Wrap.  We did thermoforming, not injection molding.

For me 18's are the top, should not go over.
With that said, there are a few cars that ive seen (20 in back, 18's on front) that are done correctly and professionally that make the cars look great. Now if you put 20+ on all 4's just because you think it looks cool with hardly any rubber showing then that is your preference but obviously you're ride will suffer, but who cares as long as you think you look good.

Does anyone have pics of the mentioned splitter?

Only a hand full of cars had them and neither Hammer or Bones have them IIRC.

Correct Mongo - neither Hammer or Bones have the very rare black chrome splitters (boy I wish I did).  I believe George Holt does.  I've seen them on a couple cars at the NATS - they're awesome looking.

Those rims are ugly but at least they saved a bird.  Sadly though since this is probably not a TA lover that owns it, it will be driven into the ground then towed off to the junk yard.
