And high-quality Instagram shot-


Tonight I will put the car on jacks when I get home from errands and then tomorrow I will install the springs, which will help the overall fitment a little bit.

It's hard as hell to capture properly, but the bronze looks really good in person against the TS paint. Once the springs are in, car gets washed, and my camera is charged I'll get some better pics posted.
I have to say Duane, you really know how to make wheels work for any color you have. I like this look a lot! I'm normally one to say that bronze is a weird color, but it works with these wheels. It really highlights details on the wheels and the wheels themselves obviously work with MK3s well done!

Twenty Bronze FTW!

Thanks James! The shop was fantastic and I couldn't have been happier with their work. It's a long drive but I won't even think twice next time!

dyn085 If it was my daily driver I probably would have done Sportlines or coils, but my gf drives it the most so it was her decision. Actually, everything on the FoST has been her decision with me given gentle nudges (or firm shoves) towards the final solutions.

I had to file a BBB complaint just to get them to half-ass fix them. I was pretty mentally scarred over the whole thing.

The FoST will only get Pro Kit springs because we don't want to do anything aggressive on it. It should basically have the same stance as the Mk3 did before it went to coils.
That would mentally scar me too! damn. well glad you found a good shop then.

Nice! can't wait to see how it looks. I'm thinking about sportlines for mine, but i'm not 100% sure yet.

roswelltop At first thought, I would have imagined that those wheels and that paint color would not work together. But damn, you pulled it off beautifully.

Congratulations Duane.
