I see that it's only $50 now.

It must have ended in the last week or so.
Glad I got mine in time!

Also considered the General Exclaim but read too many reviews that said the handing wasn't very good.

P.s.

Thanks GODSPEED for the nice comment on the wheels.

I really like the BBS in that style but $$$ and I like the lip on the Voxx better.

Yeah, for that price you cant be beat. BBS aren't worth the money IMO. I paid $185 a wheel for my fondmetals back on '04. Can't wait to see those on your car, what color is it?

'96 Sport Graphite Night Mist.

My '92 Sport was that light blue metalic. This color took a little getting used to.




I'll post pics on the car when the wheels come in.

Sorry, I had them posted in another thread. 17"x7.5" Cobra R replicas (Superior something or other)

Tires are Fuzion ZRi's 255/50/17 I need to get a set of Center Caps for it. I've got a set but they're the wrong size. Anyone got a set of 2.25" Center Caps?

I'm actually lined up to buy another set of them in 18's. Can't wait, I think they are perfect for my car. I think I'm gonna have them painted in white as well.

Thanks....I just got it back from the body/paint shop last week. They completly stripped the car down to a shell and did what they call a show quality paint job. Kept it all original color except for the side moulding and black stripe around the bumpers. Thought it looked a lot cleaner all white.

Dave, post up some pics, I'd love to see the new look. I'd like to have mine painted very well like that, how much did it run you?

-Joel

Edit, I'm retarded. From a glance, I thought the above pics were the same as the old ones you had with black trim. Looks good. Time to get some Mt. Dew in me this morning.

Including, some minor body work, fiberglass work on the hood, rolling the rear fenders and all new window trim it was a little over $6,800. Most of the expense was labor from dismantling and reassembling the car.

They are painted with a caliper paint. The fit is so close that I had to file the outside edge of the caliper to make just enough clearance. No more than 1/8" of clearance there.
