hey foxman! Yeah I knew from the moment I bought it how I wanted it to look. Thanks, I have so many ideas just not enough money! Yeah the front have 40 offset, I have ordered a 3mm spacer to clear the calipers as it's pretty tight! And I may need to put a bit of camber on the front when I lower it. It's not quite the right offset but it's not bad. I thought that too but I'm pretty sure using a 3mm spacer on a 40 offset I'll end up with a 37mm offset? I could be wrong

Your car looks awesome foxman! What % is your window tint? I've been thinking of tinting mine as I get sunburned every time I drive and go home redder than my car Haha!

Dingo,
If you havenít got keyless entry, then a Tore T-Lock is a must. A T-Lock saves your key mechanism, and makes for an easy entry and lock on departure.

I definitely need keyless entry spokes. I'm always fumbling around unlocking and locking car as the key only works one way (I can never remember which way)! I'll Google Tore T-Lock, cheers

You're absolutely right Dingo, my late night error. Spacers will push the wheels further out, thereby decreasing the offset. It's a good thing that your wheels are only 7" wide up front,

Thanks, the prior owner tinted the windows for the harsh Florida sun. I don't know the precise tint, but it is quite dark. It Looks a bit out of place now that the car is in New England, but it's part of the car's persona now.

Highly recommend getting on amazon and getting the caliper paint. Best 20$ you will spend. Fun, relaxing project.

Yeah I'm glad they are only 7" will be interesting when I lower the car.

Ok no worries, I think it looks great. I have read a few heated debates about window tint on sports cars! I need mine done though.

Default Wheel spacers



New 3mm spacers on front. Arrived less that 24 hours after ordering online!


Plenty of clearance now.

I agree manual shifting is over rated in my book 👍😁

Default Engine pad removal


Removed the engine insulation pad today, i think it looks great, Adds a bit of colour to the engine bay. Went for a drive around the block and didnt really notice much difference in noise. Will cutt the studs off tomorrow to finish the job.
