I love the Antera wheels - even though people have told me they are pretty heavy.

Smoked turn signal lenses and side markers, and Euro fog light trim conversion on my car:

Hi Nicole,
Loved the look of those smoked lenses. I've been thinking about going with some clear ones
Ive seen on ebay, but the smoked ones look even better. Could you post some side views of your car so I can see how they look -- viewing the entire car?

I too like the Antera rims, but they have a baked on ceramic coating that chips if you even look at them funny! On the upside, they have a nice clean look. I especially like the way the valve stem is hidden inside the rim. (You can see it best on my avatar.) As far as weight I dont have anything to compare them to but the phone dials that came stock. I could however pick up the rear 18"x10" with one finger. Much lighter than phone dials!
Does anyone know of a company that can refurbish the ceramic coated wheels?
Thanks,
John

Here are two combinations from the side: with clear and with smoked turn signal lenses.

Joe (90 S-4)... at first, I thought your pic got reversed -then I saw the fuel door.

What rear bumper do you have to be able to run left & right exhaust, and how's it routed?

Very cool!

It looks like you were able to keep the pipes very close in length the way you have them routed... but what did you have to do to the bumper to make it look like a factory 2nd exit? Also, did you have to add an additional heat shield for the fuel tank?

Thanks... very cool! I'd like to see the whole thing!

Since then, I replaced the noisy flowmasters with walker dynomax &
added a rear dual in dual out ss muffler. The passenger side exh
exits on the driver side and the driver side exh exits on the pass, side

I cut and welded (ABS plastic weld) the bumper cover, took a mold off
the driver side and mirror-ed it.. No heat shield needed, you can drive
it hard for an hour, get out and put your hand on the pipe, barely warm..

Damn, I don't' think I've ever seen an undercarriage that clean with exception to kermit. Wow!

It's a work of art Joe. The underside looks better than my topside!
