Face lift....
« on: June 12, 2017, 10:04:15 PM »
A few pics of the work in progress..... changing the look of my car after 19 years of owning it. 









It's taking a lot of effort and time to get it fitting right and to make it the way I want it.   More to come.

Thanks .... Advan GT's in satin black 18x10 +22 offset.  With the 295's I was running on the works.  I sold my work wheels and my te37's.   Fronts look alittle to aggressive but I have to do an alignment so we will see what happens.
