nice. I had to go look at some photos of your old 16x9.5 to see the difference.

more photos... but so far the design and in-set of the hub looks better in my opinion.

Very nice car, but way too low for any kind of performance driving.

Maybe if your refering to track use yes but spirited driving it rocks hard **** won't rub one bit. Don't know how but it's one of those things that you see it you accept it and move on.

Awesome stance Dan, very very clean! I'm jealous of your paint's apparent inability to chip...

I like the blacked-out bay too, what sort of paint did you use? Looks like maybe just a good semi-gloss or flat black and careful application?

Thanks! Next thing on the list is paint...looks great in photos and for the most part in person but it not perfect by any means. I think it was krylon semi-gloss black only downside is if I were have done it right and used automotive paint and cleared it sand, etc' wouldn't stick. Being kinda flat with no clear everything sticks. Drives me nuts.

As all the others have said, it looks phenomenal. What method did you use for all the tinting? Also, where did you source those turn signals?

Great Job!

VHT Nightshades for all the lights other than the front turn signals which are just the ebay smoked ones.

Did you have to cut-n-weld the control arms to get -30° camber?

Looks nicely done. Lot of work there, and I can respect that sort of thing as an aesthetic creation. Just not my cup of tea. (IOW, I liked it better before, when it had suspension travel and straight sidewalls.)

That is the best looking Mariner Blue car I have ever seen. I am usually not a fan of that color, but your car looks slick.

How can you possibly steer it?

Front camber is -2.2 rear is -3.2. -30 is a shitload...lol

So many hate on the ride height...looks good but not functional...I agree in a tracking standpoint but here in Florida on the road the **** rides out don't have any issues. Slight rubbing on the front on wierd slow turns but what I'm willing to live with cause it looks soo much better. Guess I'll have to bust out with some video driving around to prove it.

The issue with the ride height isn't just about tires rubbing.

When the ride height is reduced to the extent seen in your car, all the alignment angles and proper suspension travel that were engineered for optimal handling go out the door.
