New Graphics and Painted Rims...
I got new graphics a month or so ago, so I painted my rims gunmetal to match. I finally got to put them on today since I think all threat of snow is past! Not the best pics, the light was weird, but you get the idea. I have a kit that will be painted and installed end of April which will balance out the wing.

Thanks. If you mean the kit, I will have the Blitz on next month. The scoop is Sport-M, of course the tails are TYC. The drop is Tokico springs and shocks, which is 1.25" but can't go lower because of the Blitz. Heres a pic when I test fitted the front last fall before I bought the sides. Like I mentioned, all will be on in 4 weeks.

Duplicolor for the base. And then 10 coats of triple clear glaze so that hopefully it will hold up to the elements.

yes...it was a pain bigtime, but I wanted the paint to last. I also did the wing inserts and the hatch handle housing too. Which I am going to replace because it has a small crack, so I want to get one of the newer ones with the aluminum trim in the Thundercloud color. (unless I can find a Carbon Fiber one).

There was a buy here on this site from 10celica10, but it ended. You could get any color you wanted, but I am sure the buy ended last month. Sorry.
