Default New Pics Bi-otch! (56k Killer)

Just refinished my wheels and added some new parts so decide to take some new pictures. Wheels were shotpeened, prep & painted with all PPG's best, and finished off with PPG's fix-n-flat at 20% eggshell gloss & some anodized blue lug nuts.

Man, the car looks unbelievable. Aren't you running Tein Flex's on it? Do you really have enough travel to stay off the bumpstops?

Basics; fronts still have good travel but rears were on bumpstops basicly. Stay tuned as I hope to have some really sick top hats avilable soon. Will accept the entire body of the coilover and will retain stock shock travel even at my ride height. Only down fall is some mods to the sheetmetal in the trunk will be required but very minamal.

Should be...they would have been done months ago but I lost intrest and well you know how that goes. I will also have them available for Koni's, etc, and I think we can make those clear without cutting anything.
