    Yea, the dish is what sold me on them... I had to have a lip on both front and rear.

    lol, that shows hoe much I know about the rims... oops

    Thanx for the complements, the box weighs way too much... it takes two people to remove it but I built the cage and the system to be fully removable so I could take the weight out if I want to go racing.

    Really nice car man it looks like she's well done too. DawsSVT is doing a build up very similar to yours so make sure to check his thread out. Keep us updated on the project. O0

    with your air ride height all the way up you could almost just walk under the car to do your oil change!

    No kidding, but it looks like my car though with stock springs. Do you have smoked headlights?? If ya do were did you get them and if you have any pics with the cobra front bumper that'd be awesome because that's what I really want to do to mine. I really like those 98 cobra rims, if you have them still in August I'd buy them, I'm heading to Virginia Beach in August for vacation. BTW I love what you're doing.

    Re: New to the site... Pics of the build from start to where I am now on my SN-9

    Yea Iv seen his build allready and its looking sick as hell, only differance is that mine is my daily driver but Ill show it some once I finish... Id be to scared of destroying the paint on his to drive it much.

    It was only supposed to be a harness bar for my seatbelts in the beggining but since the friend of mine that did the welding allready owed me money and he really wanted to do a full cage, I figured why not. Its also a little for show since Im molding the sides of it into the plastics and Ill paint it satin black once I get ready to paint the interior.

    Lol, it does make it easier to work under the car... dont need a jack, just lift it and stick some jackstands under it for safety.

    Not yet, just clear headlights and corners. Once I get it sprayed Ill probally change them out for some smoked ones though. Ill post up some more pix as soon as I get the chance, I wanted to get some more work done this weekend and some updated pix but the weather didnt cooperate with me. Yea if I still have them Ill let you know.

    Thanx alot, I do have experience building custom systems... though its still alot of trial and error and just going for it, trying new things. Im actually enrolled to start in July at a school in Jersey that teaches advanced fabrication, motorization, welding, custom interiors... so alot of what the interior looks like now will stay the same untill I get there and have more recources to finish it, we get to work on our own cars for the class projects and I want to make sure that my interior is magazine quality(My goals to get it featured some day)

    Im in Arlington, just south of D.C.

    I havnt finished it yet, I still need to do some mods to my '02 center consul, get my door panels to the primer state along with the rest of the interior before I really finish it... I want to spray the whole interior at the same time, so it probally wont get finished till Im in school in July
