DE car update w/ pics

So I was able to get a few things done to the car today.

I ordered tires for the street wheels earlier in the week, had them mounted and I put them on the car this morning. The wheels are replica GT-3 wheels. 8 1/2x18 and 10x18. Tires are Bridgestone Pole Position S-04. 225/40/18 front and 265/35/18 rear. Added 5mm spacers and longer wheel bolts on all 4 corners.

Installed the mirror covers and swapped the orange side markers for a clear set. I've had 2004 550 SE solid red tail lights on for awhile. I also have a set of litronic headlights that I need to clean up a bit and then they'll get installed too.

Ordered side stripes and door numbers a few days ago, so those will be the next things to install.

My last track weekend is mid-November, then a few more things to do over the winter to get the car ready for DE season in the spring. Also a few interior trim upgrades to do.

Stay tuned!
