Hi Junk_Poet,

That's a great looking ST! I can check out some additional assistance on that hopping. I'll just need a PM with your VIN, mileage, best daytime phone, full name, and dealer name/location.

Also, bolt.

I pulled on it a bit hoping I might be lucky and find that it didn't puncture all the way. As it turns out, I am not lucky.
*sigh That is just unfair, it was all going so well

I may have forgot to let you know that I have an ST now. Just updated my avatar.

Oh, and I get to make another trip to the tire shop tomorrow because I picked up a 1/4" bolt in my left rear tire last night. Yay.

My DSLR battery is dead currently, so here is a shot from my phone-


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!
