    I'm going the same route as you, are you using a stock width rear end housing?

    Yes it's the freight that a killer on the front splitter/spoiler , and then you have to massage it to make it fit nice, figure another 8 hours, however it looks great when done!!

    It was $700+shipping. I paid $185 to NC. I think I was able to get it on the car in about 2-3 hr's after thinking it over...needed persuasion.

    Looks great, I've been looking into Corvette / aftermarket wheels for my project as well, a couple of questions, did you have to alter the hub bore size to fit the stock spindles? I've played a little with an aftermarket wheel and I found that the hub bore would have to be machined, the other issue is if you do that then the center cap won't fit, another issue I found is I found that the spindle protrudes through the hub bore, did you have to use any wheel adapters/spacers?
