Looks good man! Recaros ftw! Honestly, I think with the way the rest of the car is set-up the rims just dont seem to pull it off quite yet, now if you get some new euro front and rear parts it will be a diferent story. Ever think about getting some of the original pieces before it was parted out? They looked sick on it!

Those wheels are bomb. I am not a chrome fan but they pop on that yellow. Super clean ride all the way around.

Just read more of the thread. I stand corrected on the "chrome". The ride is Sauce"!!!

What do you have planned next? I read that you were going to deep-six the US bumpers.
Anything else cosmetically or are you going to focus on performance?

So how does the way the rest of the car is set up not pulling off the wheels?? euro bumpers? really? i never thought of that....?
and nope, never liked the old look much... i prefer a cleaner look, the sideskirts were way to chunky for me.

performance?
this car gets gas and oil and maintenance when it needs it. when, not if, the engine finally pops, i'll put in a 04 Sable/Taurus 3l 24v and call it a day. beyond that, any and everything done to the car beyond cosmetics is strictly to fix issues from either the original build or previous owners neglect or to minimize issues down the road with how it's currently setup!

just look at the kid trying to do the swap right now.. 2 years in and it's not even close to driving. the only upside to the car is the soundtrack otherwise it drives like a solid BBK JRSC Zetec or NA 2.3L duratec build. unless the sound is really worth the probable $5-8k to do the swap, you really don't want the poor reliability of this engine.
