Fun with Photoshop

So I was board this weekend and I decided to mod my car via photoshop. Just messing around with some rims and a drop.

What do you think?

Stock

Personally I like the wheels you have more, have you thought about having them power coated white?

I like it. The rotors and calipers look good too.

How's the interior progressing?

I love the stock rims. I have the same ones. I only wish I could get them in 18.

I have the same 17" stock rims and love them too. Remember, at stock height, you have 4" clearance. Now consider the local pot holes and curbs to say nothing of the 'sleeping policeman' speed humps and you are somewhat limited in where you can now drive. Unless you are in a area of the country where the roads are smooth and driveway gradients are low, I would give a lot of thought before I lowered it any more. Here in the northeast I have seen some potholes 8"+ deep so lowering for me is out. Also some of the roadkill that you may not be able to avoid is more than 4" high (Big Raccoons and Woodchucks).

Sure...

Im not even sure which rims I'm going for. This was just something to kill time with over the weekend.

Cheers

Hi Derek,

The interior is done for now. Color matched Carrara White center console and door handle pulls (below the leather part). I've replaced misc trim pieces with new ones, new floor mats, aluminum gauge trim rings, and I've also installed my double din Pioneer deck.

BTW, I still could not get those 2 damn dashboard trim pieces out. I basically had everything ripped out of the dash and I still could not get driver inside of the dash to remove the screws. It was such a pain in the a$$ that I finally gave up on it. Maybe I'll try it again come winter time when i park it for a few months.

Cheers

Mark

Actually I think the white rims look good on your car and a bit different in a positive way. Go for it.
