$300 worth of centre caps will go flying off at the track. I used black tremclad.

Ya I've sprayed them before. I'll have to do it again when I install my bbk.
I opted not to do the caps for that exact reason Norm was saying... they'll go flying off on the track lol

lol.. ya i'll be painting them when I do my bbk for sure...

Finally got my car back on the ground. Supercharger runs good with the base map on the Flashpro so far... took it for a spin around the block and I get zero traction lol.
And because I don't have an aftermarket exhaust, I can hear the charger suck air and the wastegate going off...

I think i also need to raise the front up a bit and increase front camber because I'll definitly have front fender clearance issues when I get out on the track... so I ordered a set of Origin Fab offset camber bushings off Evasive...

Looks great Dennis. That front wheel fitment is tight! Hopefully those camber bushings help out!
