:D

Yeah, it's been a while. Went through a divorce, took funds and time, then got distracted by other cars and projects... Just bought a house with a shop though so looking forward to making some progress again.

Some 18 X 8's that I bought off the Vortex for a great price, cause they're ugly as is. Second pic is them about to go in the machining center to be fixed so they look good. They're 5 X 100's. I'm going to build a disc brake kit for my bug that uses all new parts, hubs, rotors, calipers etc to get some big brakes on without having to run around and scavenge parts from other cars.

That is one sweet vert! Very nice! Have any specs on the tires/rims and narrowed beam? Like to know.
Thanks,

Those Yokohama S-drives on Bender's ride were my choice on the front too (some other Yoko on back)- I've met several people with them, and haven't heard a single bad review.

Hi

My sons GL 1303. BBS wheels from Subaru Liberty (5x100 pcd), 17x7 55 ET, tyres are 215/45x17 Federal 595RS.

The car needed skinny struts on the front and steel 944 trailing arms and brakes on the rear.
