What wheels?
Haven't decided for sure, but I'm looking at ordering some CCW LM20's. I want to run at least 9.5s in the rear preferably 10s. Finding high offsets is another tricky thing, which is limiting me to look at custom 3 piece wheels or running Porsche wheels with adapters. I've been looking at a few sets of Porsche Twists as possibly a temporary option until I figure out what I want to do. :beer:

NICE! I've been waiting for this thread to pop up! Can't wait to see everything get going...

And by the way...if you are looking for Twists, I have a set of Hollow Spokes sitting around. Let me know if you're interested. They're 18x10 et65 in the rear, and 18x7.5 et55 in the front I believe. With 15 or 20 mm adapters you'll be sitting just right. ;)

Thanks, can't wait to finally get the ball rolling

I may be in touch with you about those twists :D do you have the adapters as well?

So I was took a little time to get an idea of how I want the trunk to look...so far this is what I'm leaning towards:



Still gotta figure out the air line routing and management placement, etc. I want to keep the spare if possible...

Small little update, got my K Sport Adjustable Endlinks. Also spent yesterday making a template for the management system. I'll be putting the management under the spare tire, making the spare still useable.

Got a little busy yesterday, so didn't get around to cutting it, but the template is ready to go. I was originally thinking about cutting out the middle portion because of the little spot where the spare tire mount goes, but I think I'm just going to raise the board up to sit flush with the mount and run wires underneath to keep it clean. In the end i'll most likely just cut out the big circle.



More to come, still waiting on my rear shocks, rear bags and sway bar brackets.

Things are going really slow...I'm still waiting on my rear bags and shocks. The SS-5s and Bilsteins are both out of stock at the moment so who knows when I'll be getting them in, hopefully next couple weeks.

On another note, I think I just found some wheels. Hopefully picking them up Saturday! :) Getting nasty.

I know, I know! I just need those rear bags and struts (as well as adapters and tires). BagRiders said hopefully within a couple weeks they should be getting in a shipment of SS-5s!!!! Can't wait, just got my sway bar brackets and adjustable endlinks too. So everything else is pretty much good to go.
