Steven, it doesn't look like you could roll those Fenders enough as wide as they stick out. Usually folks don't have such beefy tires when they poke like that.

Yeah I did on youtube and I will probably go with the stealth. My dad might buy my rims so if he does, I will probably order it right away. lol

Well poop. The fronts dont rub now, it was just the back. and if I roll them maybe half an inch id be good. I figure I may as well try.

Thank you!

So yep the wheels are all done. I need to put them on and see how they look. If I feel like they look completely silly, I may just sell them. But I love them. The splatters turned out great! I will post pics when I put them on which will probably be tomorrow when my family leaves.

Thanks man! My family is leaving in the morning so tomorrow I will put the wheels back on and try rolling the fenders. Also, my dad might buy my EAPs if I do wind up selling them.. Obviously id sell them to him for less but id be glad they would stay in the family....if I sell them. lol

Figured I would post some updates. Lets see, rolling my fenders didnt go well. I probably could have done it with a hammer, but I didnt want to waste any more time on it. So I listed those wheels for sale.

My headlights finally came in, but almost all of the tabs were broken. :( But the seller refunded me $50, so basically I paid $100 for these proper euro headlights. :D lol All I have to do is glue them back on and I should be set. I might rig up some other way to secure them once they are on the car. I will post pics once I get around to putting them on. It might be awhile because I need some stuff from pyro first. lol

Then I ordered this sticker: http://www.ebay.com/itm/250973397871...84.m1497.l2649
I will just cut the golf part off.

So since my SVT drivers seat has 2 spots where the red threads are worn down, I thought about getting a patch to sow on. The covers can come off on the seats right?? If so, I was thinking about getting any of these:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/140755312606...84.m1438.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/250760173731...84.m1438.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/380424715966...84.m1438.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/251135929995...84.m1438.l2649
http://www.ebay.com/itm/181033537963...84.m1438.l2649

Oh and I took some pics. I got all of that euro dirt off my bumper finally. Last time I washed my car was in August.

You had European dirt on your car? I would have left that on; everyone know Euro dirt adds at least 50 hp.

Oh so I never really finished my LED conversion. I have the dome light and thats it. What size LEDs do I need for the 2 map lights, the dome light, and the lisence plate light? I am about to look it up...but I figured I would ask anyways in case I couldnt find out.
