    Looking Phatter than ever now Phil! Can't wait to see a shot from behind with all that wide rubber tucked under there. How's the power plant coming along? Not sure about the thermal properties of your current head in the recent pics...

    Cheers Dayne The fronts are 18x8's with ET+7 and rears are 18x10's with ET+18. That should give a back space of around 4.75" on the front

    Cheers Fehlbie Funny you should ask about pics of the fronts.... They're only dodgy phone pics at this stage but you get the general gist of how they fit[:p]

    Looking good Phil! It feels like it's getting close now... it certainly has been a while between drives.

    Are you going to upgrade your rubber door protectors? You should get some with reflectors, they are cool... and maybe some of those springy wire parking assistor things for the sides... and heck, why not a static strap for the back too while you are at it. [:o)]

    I was thinking of alternating orange and white reflectors all the way down the doors[:o)] And maybe some cowskin seat covers for the Recaro's
