I'd say leave the flares in place until you get the Tuckins. That way if you get the car running before you get the new flares, you can drive it and it won't look horrible.

Smart choice....I got a little ahead of myself when I was doin my car. I wasn't planning to buy wheels and tires so soon, but after one drive with the tuckins and kosei's, I had no choice . I really wasn't plannin on dropping the money till about May'ish

haha! the wheels and tire i have now will suffice for now, well maybe not the tires

I have to order the spacers as well too! i also need to find a good 1.8 block i so i can throw my head on it and put it in the car and build my 96 block on the side! one of the reason i parked the 96 and started tearing it apart aside from starting the swap is when i dranned the oil i notice some shimmering in the oil and it kinda scared me a bit! before i dranned the oil the motor was making all kinds of noises ( it had a mystery oil leak somewhere and got really low on oil ) so i drained what oil was in it and noticed the shimmering **** in there!
