    Looking forward to more.

    I'm getting more and more enthusiastic about taking cars that should have been manual but are automatic, and throwing great engines that should have been manual but are automatic in them. Simplified swapping and much improved cars as a result.

    I just spent two weeks beating myself up over wheels because of tire selection. I went with 15s for the look, I think they go with the car the best, but tires are not easy to find.
    17s have great tire selection but look a bit too big and modern for the car, to me. They can look great, but they don't retain that JDM styling.

    16s are kinda the worst of both, a little too big for the look, with few tire choices. That's what I decided anyway.

    wheels and tire and brakes is a pain in the ass, if I did 17" bronze centers with a black lip it would make the wheel look smaller? not sold on anything yet??
    if you have a bitch, have a fix, or don't bitch?

    Looking great, James. I dig the color combo.

    Glad to see you made the transition to these forums.
