Just dump them at my house Jeff and I will make sure they make it to the dump. Wouldn't want you to take the white lightning to the land field and do donuts like at your work parking lot. Trying to save you a trip buddy. Lol.

I like the look of gun metal/anthracite/charcoal colored wheels in this style...I always figured I'd stick with the retro wheels but I may go this route with something similar whenever I look into 18's (of course, that may be a ways off yet, I'm po')

Well, here is the change.

First I would like to thank Jeff, Mike and Jason for all the help today. Still have a lot of work left, but if it wasn't for them I wouldn't even have got this far. As we go through the pics and parts they should look really familiar since they are coming off the "Original Sleeper".

Before we started

MegnaFlow Black Quad Tip Axleback with GT500 Diffuser

Textured Black ForgeStar 19x9 and 19x11
Click the image to open in full size.

Forgot to take a pic of the BMR K-member with everything on it as well as the one piece DS. It is frick'n awesome even though it was a PITA. Really cleans up the underside and tons of room.
The supercharger still needs to be installed along with the BMR Radiator support. Like I said, lots of work left, but a great start.
Oh yeah, still have to put the black car back together. LOL

Love the car!! May I ask you what you did with the old after markets parts? From the looks of the thread you changed a few things out a second time. Exhaust, suspension bits, and so forth. I did skip some pages so I may have missed it. You don't happen to have them still do you?
