Wow the pictures are terrific! I have never seen that color before. The wheels and the calipers blend in fantastic. On the side I also like the Mooney landing. Makes my Boxs look bland by comparison.

Looks great, DJ! A very aggressive and muscular look. Are you doing the drive with us Saturday?

DJ, whan are you going to paint the bumperettes? You gotta get that detail done ASAP, IMHO.

Nice work, as usual!

Did you get the alignment? Can you feel any differences, or does the car track down the road any better?

thx for the feedback guys

Bill,
unfortunately i wont be able to do either one of the drives this weekend, Ves has the whole weekend planned for her b-day with her and my family, and then some nighttime activities as well....plus i probably wont be sober enough to drive anyways haha...
and as for bumperettes, i should be getting those done very soon, im working on it im trying to get a deal worked out to convert it to a euro rear bumper and completely eliminate them, but if that falls trough some paint on them will do the trick.

boxstar,
heres somewhat a eye-level shot...

ddb,
i didn't get an alignment, i consulted my GFs brother that works at tire/wheel place and he said that if that is all that i changed i don't need to get it done. so far the car drives much smoother, quieter, and letting go of the steering wheel results in car going perfectly straight for as long theres a straight road, so thats good to know that it didn't change at all.

i haven't pushed the car trough any turns yet, as i just got done with modification of the lug nuts, the 'spacers' on the lug nuts were shortened to accommodate the spacer that is put between the wheel and hub. so i will see the difference soon, i woke up too late and missed registration for auto cross yesterday, but still went and got rides in many nice cars

Sboxin, Bob,
thx a lot


aBsOlUt,

Even your MUFFLER is clean!
Your rear wheels seem tall.
I hope somebody steals your headlights and insurance pays for a new set of clears. (Say the word... I know a guy...)

damn, with you coming in town again, if they go missing, i know who to look for

and for the rear tires, yeah i guess they little tall, but they sure do add some comfort that there is to get from this car hahah

djomlas,

Glad you showed up Sunday ! Your car looks so sweet in person. I can't believe you forgot to take pictures at the track, though...

Have fun this weekend with your girl. Sorry you won't be able to make it to the rides, but you know what they say, if momma ain't happy, ain't nobody happy

Nick

Nick, thats pretty funny, but so true.

anyways, some people asked about the lug bolts, heres the pic of how it was modified.
part that was machined out is the same thickness as the spacer

btw, this is a pic of old lug bolts, as you can see they are rusted as hell
