Very slow physical progress but quite a bit of planning has been done as far as fitting these damn wheels
The new lips will be on their way early next week. Found out that $100 in lug nuts are needed but they'll be the correct hardware so no complaints there.
Also found that the front brake rotors are the "late" model with the big centering lip/ring which happen to be too big to fit these wheels so new rotors are on their way. I feel better about that since they won't be re-drills so they won't lack in material on the back-side of the disc. Those, along with the ISP West chromoly rear hubs will officially mean that this will be "done right".
Its time for a little time off while all the parts arrive so I can hit this thing strong in March in order to button things up for show season.
