Perfect wheels OB. Looks like you did a cut and buff on that paint too.

I got the new front suspension with narrowed beam and dropped 3" in and finally got the Fuchs 2 liter alloy wheels back from paint and mounted. It is starting to look like the cars I have had in my past.

I have the engine and transmission in build right now so hopefully in a couple months, I will be making some serious manifold pressure on my way to get ice cream.

It's funny, I bought this car knowing it was worth more than both my BMW's combined but by the time this toy is done, I will have more money in it than I did in my Ferrari. Reliving my youth is priceless.
Looks great! I assume you're going to boost the motor? It will go like a bat out of hell!
