      That looks really really good. Usually not a big fan of white wheels, but you pulled it off. Nice work.

      Update:

      Today i finished painting the D-Cups and drilled the holes in the side for the 1/4'' line. Next step is to get the trunk setup figured out. Keeping my spare tire, so im thinking about doing a wood ly in and all components exposed. Need to order a few more fitting and will be good to go. Still waiting on front struts.......

      I'm sure you plan to do this already bob, but I'd throw a rubber grommet on that d-cup to eliminate any chance of that air line rubbing and cutting itself.

      i should have painted my cups, it looks good!

      you can trim the cup so it sits lower in the control arm. therefore making your car sit a bit lower without cutting your nips off.
