    Re: I'm Ridin' Spinners... [Pics - Death to 56k!]

    Regarding the fender rolling, I bet with a stock ride heighth you would be fine. I sent Vincent Wong at iForged the pics of the car with some notes on how to make the wheels fit better.

    If/when I make my second million (gave up on the first cos it was just too hard) I'll probably do the fender flairs and minitub so I can tuck something fierce. Since it's a three piece design, iForged would be happy to accomodate.

    I purchased the wheels direct from iForged and they were very good about their service. I had an issue with the front wheels (originally 9" now 8.5") but they sent me call tags and had the wheels back in a timely fashion (about two weeks). When under load during cornering, the inside of the rim, not the tire, would rub on the suspension. I think with 3mm's of more positive offset it would've been fine at a 9".

    The rears are 10's, and with their current offset, I should be able to tuck an 11", definately a 10.5" rim beneath. Considering the lowering with Eibachs, I should've went with more negative offset to get the rim beneath the fenders better. Luckily I have a friend with fender rolling skills (he did both his RX7 and 240/Silvia conversion) who did a superb job. It doesn't pass the ******* test (face to fender, examining every little scratch) but the five footer, it's perfect.

    The detail job comes courtesy of one of my best friends who details cars while still in college. He did a softpad buffing job on the exterior and then complimented it with Zaino. I had to enlist his expertise after spending the July 4th weekend at the lake and getting into a sand fight with two young ladies. Beer + hot chicks = who cares about a li'l sand, right?

    The pics are hosted on a friend's server, so I would prefer if you just stole 'em and hosted it on yours. I won't bitch and moan too much, but he may come after me if he sees tons of people eating his bandwidth. Shouldn't be too big of a problem, but please don't go crazy.

    I do appreciate all of the compliments. Makes me smile everytime I see her. Now to get my fart pipes and a personalized tag to complete the first stage in my appearance upgrades. Next, I am hoping to find a tasteful spoiler and decide if I really want the fender flairs!

    You are sooooo close to having the perfect V!!!!! Get those grilles powdercoated black like Dgtlpimp has done and what I'm about to do. Keep the chrome as is and the mesh black and everything will mesh perfectly!!!
