the spacers are from H&R. they are 20mm for the front, and 25mm for the rear. There is a link somewhere... actually I contacted Mike from RDC and he helped me to get the right fitment. If you go to the FSwerks site there are the same spacers there but less mm in size - they are the model specific fitment I guess. I think the reason is there are different types of spacer fitments even if they are both the same size in mm.
Anyways there is a couple pics of how it looks on my car on the last page, but the box they came in is at home but when I visit home i'll take a picture of the box.

I can take some more shots of how they look on the car tho :)

Thanks! yes it's Lamin-X precut gunsmoke. I still had to heat it and stretch but it turned out almost perfect! I think next time I do something like that I will just use a sheet of vinyl and cut it myself.
