      The OE pinstripe was under the clear and was red and silver originally. So I have to keep the pinstipe until I get the fenders a re-spray, as their is a groove in the clear if I remove them. (all the doors and quarters have had a re-spray)

      Looks good, I would have done some things different but nevertheless absolutely love the engine work

      I agree about the pinstripe

      Can you tell me what paint code are the RX's centers painted?

      Custom matched to the gray in the BBS logo on the center caps.

      Yea, the car hasn't gone to alignment yet as this ****er has used up all my money The car has PSS9s on it now and I got it as low as it can go without getting shorter springs or different coils.

      Nicely done
      The only thing that I think is contradicting is the ride height. Looks like you built the car to drive it, don't get why you'd want to dump it on its nose.

      Beautiful. I really really like this.
      Also I'm also not too sure about the pinstripe. Your bay looks awesome though, and very nice charger recirculation override.

      Must say, very clean car. Love the look.
      A little curious how the car runs with the charger with an aba/16v. Have any numbers? Still running aba pistons? Is that not very low compression for a charger?

      Motor looks real clean also.

      Beautiful Corrado! I'm curious, why'd you do a 5 lug swap on a G60? I don't believe I've seen this before other than the G60s with a VR6 swap.

      ^^"Plus" suspension: (as per VW themselves): better geometry/ride quality overall

      car runs real well! the compression is close to the same as it would be stock.(in the 8.1:1 range-ish) It is running the stock aba pistons, and I have no numbers to speak of because dyno time is $$.

      Very good to hear. Always was told chargers perform best at 9:1 and above, because of rpm limitations of the charger. But I'm assuming if you properly size the charger, which it appears you have, there is no issue. Thanks for the reply.
