    Looking good, what the wheel specs?

    Fronts could do with a spacer.

    Nice car, there is a few things i would personally not have on it if it was my car, but i'm a bit gutted you painted such a boring color, in that one picture it looked as tho it was going to be something very cool.

    Clarkey.
