bonvo, March 12, 2008 in Project Datto
my front wheels have arrived
look how much deeper the rears are
my wiring harness also showed up
now all im waiting on is my gauges from speed hut and my brakes
tires are mounted on the fronts cant wait till monday when i can go to the body shop and put them on
rears are still a little taller then the front maintaining the muscle car look i like
bolted the hub back up and bolted a wheel to it this is as low as i can go on the coil overs before the tire contacts the adjustable spring perch will be a little less once i cut them down but ill still have over half the collar of adjustablity which will be plenty cause im not going super low
aaaaand since im still undecided on color i played around in photoshop and looking for opinions on on paint colors
Bonvo those are nice tires and wheels but I would not install them on a car that is at a body shop for paint. I would leave the tires and wheels on it until you get it back from paint shop. this will protect your wheels from any possible damage from the paint process.
As for paint color that is something you and your wife will need to agree on. What I like and what you like may be two different worlds. I am excited to see you getting this build going agein. Also congrats on your wedding! Now you truly do have a better half!!! LOL
i need to take them to the body shop because he didnt like the zg flares i brought him so he is making steel flares and wants the wheels and tires to form the flares around them
see my fiance is no help lol i had it narrowed down to 2 colors and she suggested the burgandy and the teal so i played with it in photoshop and like those options to XD
as for the build im happy its starting to roll again its been in the body shop for 2 years at this point its difficult to work on when its not here
thanks :) she is fucking awesome i honestly never thought id ever want to get married never really saw the point till she came along
My personal opinion is the teal. To me, the wheels would look better with that.
I like blue or burgundy (wasn't this car burgundy at some point? Or was it red?)
car was red for a while
I like green or blue with those wheels. Green is opposite of brown/bronze on the color wheel, which makes it a complimentary color. I painted my car green with bronze wheels so I'm biased that way. Paints fucking expensive, so make it something you're going to dig for years to come.
It's your choice really. There are some colors that I would NEVER pain my car but look great on someone else's. Why? maybe I'm just not brave enough.
my brakes are here! holy fucking shit troy ermish doesnt fuck around these are not only the same price as the t3 stuff but the rotor can actually be turned less likely to warp comes with stainless steel brake lines and a new master im blown away these are just beautiful
I think you should paint it orange or yellow! See this is not a question you should ask us here on Ratsun! LOL
Paint the car whatever you like you will have to drive it and be proud of it.
my speed hut gauges are here parts are now all here waiting on the car to leave the body shop then shit gets real
