nice work man !!!
This was the very first time I took the car around town, (to the muffler shop) since the dumped glass packs under the rear seats weren’t doing much for me. I tried making my own exhaust (I’ll post that later) but was just wayyyy too loud. Being in California it’s not wise to drive around that loud. View attachment 84716
Here’s my roll dog she couldn’t wait. She just wondered when this damn thing was going to run! Her entire life she’s been next to me building this car. I thought it would be best to let her be the first to ride shotgun.

Remember when I said I opened a can of worms? Well when I started building this car I ended up using solid body bushings but I decided to lower the body what does that mean? This giant intake now sits higher than I thought! Oh we’ll guess I’ll just have to ride around with out a hood?. (It’s temporary) I just wanted to drive that damn thing!

And yes I know the us mags are very played out in our cars but I’ve been eyeballing these since they first came out and here they are. These are 20x9.5 and 20x8.5

Thank you. I have 20 on the car and I admit I was really nervous on how the car would turn out but I like it, the ride isn’t harsh and I get no tire rub at all, I am running a tiny bit of camber just to prevent the bolts on the fenders from rubbing. I currently have cpp rear leaf springs with lowering shackles from Protouringfbody in the rear. For the front I’m running the upgraded stock type coils from protouring f body, I’m also running aluminum body bushings in the low setting.Are you sitting at stock height? I’ve seen a couple of second gens sitting on 20s’ and none have looked good, but yours is the first. That stance looks great. I’m on 17s’ and have been kicking around going to 18’s or staggering 18-19s’
