Cspence can you put a link in here for the spacers you used? and i cant remember what numbers you said i should use for 0et wheels to fill the 99's out!


Oh yeah, and when i got the engine out im gonna pull the oil pan to inspect the internals for damage, and at the same time rebuild the front of the motor (waterpump, oilpump, timing kit, ect ect!)

depends on your rim width... 15x9 0et will sit just like mine in the rear. 15x8 0et you'd need like a 5-10mm spacer, more (like 15-20mm) if you really want the wheels flush once the car is on the ground and suspension settled. Mine is not flush, but I think I pull them off okay. One day I'll man up and get some kodiaks.

Lil bit of an update.........bought a GV front lip for the car, and Bilstiens with H&R springs, i wrapped the center console lid with a bandanna to match the E-Brake boot that i made! i also pulled the headlight assembly and the rear finish panel from my 96 montego and painted them Flat Black and installed the RFP, i think im gonna have to pull the mounting brackets for the headlights because the ones in the R were modified for low pro headlights! im working on a DIY cool air box and im and working on making a radiator cover plate thingy!

im waiting to get my hands on a engine hoist to get my engine out so i can start tearing it apart! and i need to find sombody with a sandblasting cabinet so i can sandblast my protege valve cover!

I want one of those trunk lids soooo bad but I think I need wheels to roll on first but trunk next for sure. This has the start of a good thing.
