  • Couple pictures with the new (old) wheels

    Dragged her out after a long winter hibernation, started on the first try after 5 months of sitting (thanks Mario). Here's a few pictures with the shoes I added. Have to copy and paste I guess (lame)

            Looks great Sam.
            I'm still envious of the interior, did Kevin produce it for you?

            Only a few more weeks before we can finally take these toys out on nice days!

            Spray paint and tire shine doesn't equate to a "restoration!"

              Kevin did the seat kits, all the Evo stuff came from Don. Kevin's a great guy to work with, a couple of times when I was doing the seats I'd email him a question and within minutes he'd be on the phone talking me through whatever I couldn't figure out. I think next winter I'll do the door cards to match (two-tone), tomorrow the stereo is going in.
              The wheels are RS's, I got them from Dave Varco (sp?) at Aardvark Racing, I think he refinishes them himself. 16X7.5 et30 with 10 mm Eibach spacers all around. I found an Eibach strut bar that's gettting blasted and painted body color right now, should look pretty good.
              Hey Chris, if you think the winter is long where you are, try living here! You're in the tropics compared to me.

                  I spent so much time/money/effort detailing the engine, the old pad looked dingy, the Mylar reflects a lot of light back into the engine bay. Strictly performance, in other words.

                    Trust me, I can sympathize with winter in your locale.
                    I grew up in Hanover/Lebanon, and used to work in Derby Line, VT during the winter/summer.

                    Even when I go to Lebanon now I can't believe the temp change!

                    Best,
