I posted 3 pics of it. I sent the best one to your phone actually tim. lol But yes I have my EAPs on for now because I need my car daily. I will post some pics of my center caps tomorrow I hope...I think I can get them all done by then. I am sanding everything. Then im painting the ponys black with the classic red white and blue stripe in the background. Like this:
http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...8EAD36&first=1

Just no chrome. lol Then the rest of the wheel I painted white, with just red and black splatters to go with the car. I was hoping to get all of the center caps done by time my fam came in town.

I found a solution!!! Totally going to try this.

Center caps are almost done! I need to pick up some blue paint for the last stripe behind the mustang, then hit the mustang with clear and glue them back on. Tomorrow I am hoping to strip the old paint off the wheels.



btw here is some better pics from my phone of the few hours my wheels were on. These were the ones I sent to Tim.

Thanks guys! Yeah they stick out a bit. Im going to try to roll the fenders until they are even with the tire. So I suppose I will be semi stanced. lol Not super stanced or anything but im excited. If I end up not being a fan I will just put my EAPs on in Spring again.

Sooo. I asked for a FSwerks gift card for christmas because im tired of my exhaust. It was great sounding before the header, I loved it. It wasnt my favorite, but I loved it. Once I added the header it went downhill. I had a resonator added and it still sounds ricey when I punch it. Plus, it still sticks out some. I noticed they didnt weld the tip on all the way because there is a hole. And they scratched the chrome on the tip so its rusting. So the question is....FSwerks race or FSwerks stealth?? Or just a whole different brand? lol I love the way they both sound, but im scared in combo with the header it will still sound lame. :(

Lucky you, getting a brand new FsWerks. I'd suggest FS Stealth. it sounds awesome, and still has some bite to it. The Race model might be a little overboard with your long tube header.

Search through Youtube and compare
