      New coils came in today and worked on the bay some more. Almost have it smoothed out. Hopefully will have it done tomorrow.

      Got in my tires and 1.5" lips for the RM's. I bead blasted one of the wheels so I can use it as a test piece for the color of the mesh.

      Looks great so far. Question where are you getting the lips from?

      nice build!!!! Wish I could do a huge build like this. Good luck for the rest of it. One thing though, I wouldve went with the Zenders instead of the BBS's but thats me.....

      Thanks. I love the Zenders but they were way too narrow. I need more rubber under this thing which is why I went with the RM's. I can make them as wide as I want.

      Assembled the k frame for the final time. Also stripped most of the bay of the seam sealer I had put on. I didn't like the way it was looking in spots. Now I am welding up all the seams and then smoothing them out. It will take a bit to do but I will be much happier with the end product.

      No more seams. Still need to finish welding up the top of the strut tower and grinding that out. Then I get to start the whole process over on the other side.

      Played around with the spare RM I have to determine what I am going to do with the finish. This was just a rough trial to see how it would look the way I did it. The paint was barely dry and I took some sandpaper to it lol.

      Hmmmmmmmmmm

      Got one of the wheels finished today. Once the other three get fixed I will finish them. I have my spare wheel that I am going to spray some different types of clears on to see which gives the best finish.
