Got a few good shots of my 4 door SES this weekend

Went out to meet up with some car-buds and one of the photographers took mercy on my POS and took a few shots for me.

Lemme know whatcha think. I have the SVT suspension kit in my garage waiting to go on, but tinted taillights and 2010 headlights are definitely on my short list of Must-Have's.







My wife showed up to dinner later, this is her '03 GT. It was filthy, but darkness hides most of it.

Nice shots? What are you going to tint your tail lights with and do you have a black grille?

It's got the 2010 SES grill. Kinda Argent Gray colored. Looks sharp. Will look better with the other chrome pieces darkened down a bit.

Drop is in the garage, just haven't had time to install it yet.

The fitment was very close, with only slight rubbing without any spacers. I took a stone grinding wheel to the edges off the caliper anti-moan bracket and they fit perfectly.

The offset of the wheels is already right on the edge of the fenders, so I'm glad to not have to run a spacer. The rear with the big flares out back could use a .5" spacer, though. They sit in a bit, which I'm sure will be even more noticeable with the drop.

Why are you running spacers for? I have Baers track kit w/ no issues running those wheels. Checkout my profile albums for pix of my car for mod ideas.
