The tires are 245/40R17 all the way around, the quarters had to be pulled and rolled to fit the wheels. Then they were bodyworked and painted along with the car. Im running about -2.7 camber in the rear.

The fenders are actually all carbon and when it was painted we left a little strip of carbon in the vent to give it some contrast. I didn't want too much of it to be left unpainted, but it did need a little something.

Finally got to work on the hardtop some more to get the fitment where I want it to be. I'm pretty happy the way its looking now, but there's still more work to be done before it's painted!

I love the R1 bumper with the CE's.

That fiberglass work on the hardtop is really impressive as well.

Well I finally gave in and bought a Forcewerkz Bumper So now I have even more fiberglass work to tackle. I went ahead and drilled the holes on the two pieces and bolted it together to check fitment. Overall I cant complain, it looks pretty good, but I haven't mounted it on the car to check fitment around the headlights.

There were no holes made to bolt it up and I was definitely not going to drill where the dimples are on the pieces. I borrowed some of the bodyshop tools and adjusted the pieces until I got them where I wanted them. After that I found a drill bit the same size as the bolts and made my marks to drill. I wanted a drill bit the same size so that there is no room for play, and it will always bolt back up with the same fitment.







They only supplied me with 10 bolts but I ended up putting 24 lol, it ain't going no where





Final Product





The plan is to get the hardtop and bumper bodyworked and painted at the same time
