So it's been a little bit since any updates but I do have a few to add now. Since last posting I've raised the car a half inch all the way around to avoid scraping on things and so I can pass tech inspection for an event this weekend, but it makes the car way nicer to drive with the extra clearance. Some small updates:
Parking sign my girlfriend got me:
Also picked up a new buffer and took on a huge detailing task that lasted about 13 hours consisting of a wash, clay, polish, wash, and wax, but man what a difference.
Finally got around to installing my new thermostat and Samco hoses which was a PITA, but they look great.
A bigger update would be the purchase of some new wheels thanks to a gracious member on S2ki, (NFR_AP2). They are Formula Silver Volk Racing Ce28n, 17X9 + 40 and 17X9.5 +35, they're amazing. Thanks again Chris
Test fitting them on the car:
Got some new rubber to go with the wheels, Dunlop Direzza Z1 Star Specs 235/40/R17 and 245/40/R17.
Mounted and test fit:
Honestly I think the wheels and tires fit great, they do rub but I plan on getting the fenders rolled in about 2 weeks because I have an event this weekend and I might have to work next weekend so we'll see, other than that the car is about ready. Hopefully picking up some new lug nuts as well, those updates will come later.
