its like this homie, you take the locking mechansim and reverse it,flip it around to bolt on to the other side then you take a torch to the piecewere it bends into the housing then lay it flat on top of the bumper, then you cut out the fiberglass to fit the rim but be aware that its fiberglass and it will crack, next you fit the rim, line up the adapter then drill a small hole as to fit wheel stud into a hole of the adapter, use a bolt long enough to use so when you close the kit the locking mechanism locks the bolt into place
....oh yeah cut the rim in half and no welding is involved if you need more help just pm me and i will walk you through the steps gladly

The only way to put a 13" rim in a bumper kit the right way, is to find an older bumper kit made before 1985 by E&G Classics that has a 13" hub cap in it. Otherwise you can only put a 14" wheel. I charge $150 + shipping to put a rim in and cut the kit so the latch mechanism will work. If you want it rapped in vinyl i charge $120, and if you want cloth $150.

When you welded the brackets on you wasn't worried about scorching the other side of the rim?

Or better yet was it done before the pc

Do you guarantee the rim will not fall out and will stay tight in the kit?? What about the OG latch does it work the way u do it??? If so you dont charge enough for all that work!!!!
