So The paint color that was used for the wheels is Bmw Atlantis Blue--such a hard color to capture with ****ty lighting---in my pics it looks nothing like in person
I also added in some additional reflectiveness/ glass beeds. So at night its reflects light like road signs. This was more of a test to see if it would work, but it looks neat in person. Definatly different, I took these pics with the flash so you can see the reflectiveness. It doesn't show up until extreme light is on it.
After been drying for few days it was needing some wax on the clear coat---protect it from brake dust
More pics to come on the wheels, I hope to have the tires mounted and them on the car Today Flyday!

I saw this in person today, looks great!
Im hesitant to put the bbs one due to the fact the rear is down all the way and remains to be quite high.
Any advice on what I should or can do? remove the middle or rear collar for the koni coils?
I just want the rears to be a bit lower so it doesnt look funny with 205/45 on my 9s in rear
Pic of ride height
any suggestions are greatly appeciated

I think you should scrap the coilovers and toss them in the back of my car
Well the thing is, your Koni's don't go low enough to reduce the wheel gap with a 17" RS and stretched tires. Even with the perches and collars all out the spring itself is significantly taller than say B&Gs, KWs or H&Rs. The Koni's do ride nicely though.
I have a feeling I will be removing the rear to try an accomidate the new shoes sometime soon.
-While she is up on the hoist the new Autotech Rear sway bar will be going in hopefully
-Re weld in the head sheild, cat look alike on my test pipe- rattling is driving me nutts
-Replace and install 2 more bolts in the skid plate
I also had this sent away to Tim @Velocity Upholstery
Time for some final interior touches
Last thing will be sorting the bay out getting her clean and ready for spring

Thanks for the Kind words gentlemen
Been alot of work and fine detail to get to this point.
Some new things I have acquired and might use.

As for offset I am not entirely sure but I know they have a staggered offset from front to back.
I am also running a 5mm spacer in the front and have yet to install the 5mm ones for the rear . Without them looks semi decent. I am waiting on my hub centric rings before I might try them
Trying to get the car detailed in time for the weekend. I will post up some pics of before and after!
