      Nash...

      Glad you decided to go with the square light conversion on the Cinnabon. Turned out great.
      Color match is working too my bro...
      Your fashion on the other hand.

      you know it joe! the 9.4's and 10.1's are much easier to manipulate wheels specs... but figured i'd go with the worst brake setup, so if i ever sell the wheels, they'd fit just about any rabbit....

      thanks again homie!!!! and what do you mean where did i end up? if you mean specs, look up....

      anway, pic of the wheel. facemount f40's



      and another angle of how the fronts sit....



      the windshield has a large crack in it and the seal is dry rotted, so i'm going to cut it out and see if there is any damage then have a autoglo install the new seal and glass. once i do so, i'll get the tire mounted, put combo on the car, give cinnabon it's first cleaning and take a few pics...

      take care,
      nash

      Solid choice on reemz! Image is great in that there is a myriad of not only wheel styles, but front mount or sandwich mount, colors, etc etc.

      Image makes good stuff(their custom build process could use some refining) for the money indeed, but I don't think that Image has quite the finger on the pulse of the wheel world that Jason and Brian at Rotiform do. Heck, when I had my B60P's built, I messag'd Brian and Jason for the width/offset I should run for the look/fitment I was going for, as Image honestly wasn't any help with what would fit vs what would rub.
