    the books mixture for FK5 was no where close. he had to custom tint it to get it close to the proper color..

    here is how close he got the paint. i think its damn close. thats original paint on that gas cap. looks even closer in person.. once tires are on you won't see any difference.

      the tires i got are black wall on both sides so i don't have a choice..lol

      i originally like the white letters when we first got the car. always thought that was a good look. then last year we had a blow out and i had to stick another rear set of tires i had laying around on it and put them black side out. after looking at it i thought the black walls looked more tough. kinda a just business look i guess.. really like that look and jamie agreed so thats what its getting now..

      15x7 rim with 4.5 backspace. if i could do it again i'd get 4.75 backspace. plenty of room under there.

      tires are 225/60-15

      here is what i looked like when jamie first bought it.. looked nice but sat a little too high for my taste.

      [​IMG]



      here is what it looked like after i lowered it back to stockish height and installed a large bolt pattern 8 3/4 rear along with large bolt pattern disc brakes up front. man i hate the rally wheels...

      [​IMG]


      new wheels and tires installed. looks so much better. looks like it should look to me..
