thank you so very much for even considering of taking any photos of my car. I really love the angles used in all 3 of those you posted. were you the one looking through the lens on all of those?
I am much happier than one would think over these; you definiately made my night & probably the next few days as well. again, very grateful.

prime wheels are very strong, but the dream was moreso fitting 10in. widths under stock fender work. most roadster owners stick with 8in. widths when they want to run aggressive wheels & this attempt is much more drastic if you were unfamiliar with wheel fitment/ offsets.
furthermore, I feel it would be very difficult to find a wheel in any more symbolic of conditions than the prime wheels I've picked up. the overall rawness & dominating presence of a 6in. lip/ 10in. width on a baby roadster is extreme, much like my car is in itself.
they're vintage, 'aged' oh so eloquently, & will roll with perfect potential for a full restoration at any point in their future. the lips aren't pitted, barrels & lips not bent, centers not overly thick/ resprayed, all center caps fully in tact; not to mention, very rare dimensions.
my dream is much more than what you have judged. for me, this is much more than an old set of wheels. my dream is to make an overall car flow in as many ways as possible, without worrying about being conventional or taking one path over another.
as I've said before, I merely listen to the direction my car asks me to go & I follow through without analyzing anything. I make sure to fulfill all requests with quality to ensure my roadster remains as successful as these years have granted me thus far.
this is where the freedom lies within my build & these prime wheels are a prime example of all things 'FABEL'
Love this car and your disregard for conventional styling. Congrats on the canibeat feature and I am very much excited to see how the car transforms in the future. Fuck haters, your car is fun, keep it going
I hate it when this stuff gets personal. It reminds me that there are still quite a few people that have yet to grow up. I love how ballsy people are with their comments online yet would never ever say this stuff in person
I understand it. the car is very controversial. its build to be that way. fabel probably understands you have to take the good with the bad.

Myles, did you get the PM I sent you? If not, here's every picture I have of your car that I took within a weekends time....
I'm excited to see how the car transforms as well. it's really cool to watch a car develop before you when you've allowed it to choose its own pathway in life. to be honest, it was suppose to be my winter car that had potential to one day be my backup hpde track car. clearly, it's spoken back with a vengence, & I've chosen to just love my car for the roadster it chooses to be.
as far as haters, I don't ever use that term . . . they're just a group that clearly haven't been around cars as long as others. I usually put them aside, as they feel vehicles are only meant to be built in very restrictive & conforming ways. I wish they could be free to just ENJOY what is, rather than live by such miserable rules.
very few care to even attempt at understanding this car & merely pass judgement. at very young ages we've learned to not judge a book by it's cover, yet few follow such simple & wise rules.
this really is my daily driver, & have been through more than a handful of states in my slutty lil roadster at full frame laying lows. that says an awful lot to not only the drivers ability, but to how bulletproof I've made this car to handle the long haul; especially when routinely shifting down uncharted roadways.
the challenges have proven great & the fears constant, but I'm dedicated to earning my lows, & feel victorious every time I arrive at my destination. not in comparison to anyone else, but my own achievements upon the journey home. that alone should be a testiment to my character as well as my build quality.
instead so many want to outcast me for something that harms no one & is extreme fun; like a constant autocross where every bump in the road is equal to a cone in the course. when I think back to all the places I've gone with this roadster, it does build my self-esteem in the same manner as I would assume rock-climbers feel when standing atop a conquered mountain.
life is short. enjoy. Frame Bangin' FABEL
You sir, are in a league of your own. Big ups.
sick ride, done in your own way.
