Welcome back man.

Car looks almost finished, I don't think it will be that hard to source the remaining parts. Why not just run stock wheels for now? I effin hate diamond racing, ugh.

Thanks man!

I know, its my only choice right now. If I had it any other choice I would opt for better wheels. I would run stockers but my fenders have been hacked for the flares it will look like complete *** if i run around with stock wheels.

If I can find a good deal on some nice wheels and spacers I will when the time comes. It will be a min before I start to worry about that. My main focus right now firing it up. Im really paranoid about it cause the engine has been sitting for so long. Everything I need is there with the exception of a boost controller so I can drive it on no boost (I wont be DDing the car till I can get engine management locked down) and just the basics. Oils, plugs and all the other maintenance stuff.

Money is tight right now. Im an apprentice and have to work for free. lol Im bout to pick up a night shift job till the apprenticeship is over.

I have to second the throwing on stock rims and skipping buying new ones. If finances are tight, wasting money on new rims so that the look good with flares, is just wasting money.

Also welcome back.
