Can't wait to see a full side view of the car with those wheels. Looks phenomenal!

Love the wheels. You could slightly sand the top of the lugs to give a polished finish.

Been waiting weeks for the windshield to be installed. Go figure the aftermarket glass doesn't fit. Add at least another week until infer it back. Man I can't catch a break.

Yes Dave did the wheels and roll bar for me. I had the wheels last summer but hated the silver/polished look. I had always intended to do something different with them. Dave is Working on graphics too

Thanks I figured you'd like it. Green was on a very short list, but having recently seen your build I had to go with something different.

To say I'm defeated is an understatement. Oem windshield and oem gasket didn't fit. Another week of delays getting my car back. This is getting out of hand. Really at a loss for ideas now.
Next move is a non oem gasket. From there, who knows? Maybe try a 993 setup instead. I just can't even understand how this is possible

Damn man, sorry to hear. What would cause both aftermarket and OEM glass and gasket not to fit? Did you try different combos......OEM glass with aftermarket gasket or aftermarket glass with OEM gasket? Bizarre to say the least. I'll be paying attention to the outcome here as my glass is delaminating and I will be needing a new windshield soon also. Wish I could help, but I'm not sure I could offer anything that the pros you are working with can't. I can pull some measurements or bring my car down for comparison if you'd like. Just let me know.

I appreciate the offer. We have my cracked old windshield to pull measurements from. So far they've tried OEM glass/ oem gasket, aftermarket glass/ oem gasket. En route is an aftermarket gasket to test with the oem glass. After that... I mean I don't even know

Glass didn't fit. I had them measure it against my old windshield, and go figure, it was off. they took both back to,their shop to cut the new oem glass and should,hopefully be back to install it today. Lexan rear glass and roll bar were installed. If everything goes as planned ( ha for once) I'll pick it up tomorrow morning.

Could i ask where you sourced the centre caps for your E88's as the others I've seen on the market look like an after thought? Loving the progress, good luck with the screen!
