Looks nice. But I think that body kit needs some big wheels to set off the headlights and the kit.

God I wish I had your car.

I agreee bigger rims would definitely do it justice.. Ever consider Black bullits with the silver ring? But maan oh man do those give a mean stance for the cat from the front end. Beautiful!

Hey, thanks guys. Yeah, I've been thinking about black bullets since I saw those grey ones on Will's car at Cat Jam 2003. Thing is, I have to get a bunch of other stuff done before I get around to the five-lug conversion. Zach put these wheels up for sale a year ago and I wanted to try them out for a while. They just bolt right on without any modification and they give it a different look. I'll run these rims for a few years before I get around to the whole 5-lug and disc brake conversion thing.

Can I have your cat? :)

I also agree you need some bigger rims to balance the look of your ride.

They look awsome! My monitor here at work is really contrasted so I can't see what everyone else is saying about getting the bigger wheels. From where I'm sitting I see all black (can't differentiate between the car and the tires) and it looks mean as hell. Although I think I would consider painting the lug nuts black. They look kind of weird to me but then again it could be this monitor. Have to check when I get home.

Okay, I see it now. Bigger wheels probably would be better. I like the design of those though a little better than the bullitt wheels. I know it's the old 80's look but it's just cool to see something different. Just my :2c:

That car is so damn sexy, the headlights really set her off too...I wish I could see her with my own eyes though. Gonna actually bring her to CJ this year?

Looks great !! The wheels are a great look.

On a side note, what did you swipe the spoiler from ?? I like the wrap around look a lot.

Wow, thanks again everyone!

Damn, I hope you all still feel that way if and when you see it. I don't know about the CJ status on any of my cars. If After makes it out there, it's not going to be in it's best state. I still have a lot of work to do to finish up from when it was painted. Hell, I still haven't put some of the molding back on. I still haven't hard-wired my lights in yet. I still don't have the fog lights in! The moonroof isn't fixed yet!! http://www.cougarnuts.com/board/images/smilies/spaz.gif
