lol, will do. So what you reckon on the front bar? Normal black, or colour coded?
I think your new spoiler will work being black so long as there are other black pieces of trim for it to work with, otherwise it may look out of place.

its probably easier to paint it silver then change it to black than to do it the other way around?

I trial fitted the wheels etc today and i will be able to lower the car even more now, there was a pretty big gap between the guards and wheels
I will get pics up asap, but the car goes to the workshop this afternoon to get a run in tune so it wont be till after it returns from there and being welded too.
I also had it running for a minute yesterday to make sure there were no oil, water, intake or exhaust leaks and bingo, none.
Cant wait to drive it again

I am also coming upon a reasonable amount of money in June, so I will get the brakes sorted out and an alloy radiator (PWR 4 core(V8 supercar)) fitted. If money still permitts, I will get a full CAMS roll cage done too.
Here are some pics of the front flares. I really need to get some spacers
Sorry, a lot of pics, I know.

When you go to put on the back flares, make sure you take out the wiring harness on the drivers side so you don't drill through it like i stupidly did! lol, and remember, its alot easier to remount them higher than it is to remount them lower...
Also, instead of spaces wouldn't you be able to get new outter rim sections? i think its about $150 each, but since most jap cars seem to run rims of a similar width to what it looks like you already have at the front, you could always just leave the front as it is and just make the rear ones fat

Yeh, I could do rim outers, but here in Canberra, finding anyone to help with Simmons wheels at a decent rate is like finding rocking horse shit. The rear wheels are a bit wider and I do have rubber that is a bit too wide on the front (made the mistake of trusting the tyre guy in Seymour ). I figure, I will either get some bolt on spacers that will fit over the hub or eventually get some different rim outers.
Thanks for the tips

Jax aren't as good as the wheel factory ever were, they even send their wheels away to be repaired. :(
