Thanks Brian. Good quality wheels also? My first set of wheels were ADR What pieces of junk. The finish was gone in little over a year. Know a good place to order them from?

first time to post pics so some are cell phone pics and others are with a crappy camera and unexperienced photographer. Just thought I'd give a heads up!





This one was before she got debadged, and yes yes I know the wheel gap is horrendus.

it takes some balls to do... but yeah it takes a lot of patience. 90% of the time I did this mod was prepping it to put the lip onto the bumper.... go figure.

Hah, I knew that looked weird for a reason. Actually looks like a 99-01 TL front lip already on there.



And here's a nice pic I had from my driveway:

Yeah, 19" fronts (bbk clearance and a 1.25" lip) and 20" rears (3.125" lip). Ima keep em on as my premier set, and probably just disassemble the face and have it custom finished once a year or something. Thanks, i love em too!

Ron those rims are the SICKness. Definitely by far the best, keep those on! If they came in chrome and were more in my price range theyd be on my car by next week.
