      Happy with The fit. May need slightly bigger spacer up ft and maybe a slightly smaller one out back
      Will see once the tires are on

      I'm thinking those are going to be pretty cute on there!

      I did consider a VR6 swap for a minute, (already CE2 + Eurowise= profit???) but.. this winter is going to be for tidying up loose ends, finishing the engin cover, swapping trannies with an FN..

      One thing I am toying with is pulling the Callaway out at some point, but I dont know.
      I will wait til I am able to have some more fun with it to decide for sure which way I go.
      I have only driven it like 4 times and maybe 200 miles??? since I installed it..

      Loose ends? Can't imagine what could be left. I spent most of my day yesterday going through this thread and, as I'm sure you already know, I was left wanting more and thoroughly impressed. Great job and I'd love to see this in person one day.

      Thans so much!

      There aren't many, need to wire in the VSS, the tach. changing some of the gauges so need to wire those in..
      Was having an issue with the horn not workin intermittently, so that needs to be looked at
      Gotto finalize the rear mounted washer bottle that feeds the front washers.

      That sort of stuff.

      No they didn't.. I purchased them with the sole intention of polishing the faces and lips and painting the pockets brown.. but a couple things happened.. the grade of aluminum they were made with wouldn't brighten up enough when polished.. and the aluminum on the center caps looked like chrome in comparison. I only wanted them that way. If that didnt work I didn't want em at all

      IMHO the BBS would have looked great all silver, but that's just me. I'm sure you've got something up your sleeve for the Volcanos.
