Did you cut the springs? If so, how much and how does it ride? Did you have to grind the calipers at all to get the supra rims to fit? Looks sharp by the way. Sideways picture doesn't hurt, I just tilt the monitor!!!

I got it with the front springs cut already. the rear springs are eibach springs for an AE86. i have the front ones too but the kid said they wouldnt work without the AE86 top spring mount thing.....idk. haha and i didnt have a problem putting the supra rims on. i'm gonna get some wheel spacers to give it a more aggressive look. it could ride better but i dont really care cause i've had nothing but lowerd cars my whole life. haha

well thank you. :) the hood and trunk were fadded pretty bad and so were the bumpers so i painted those flat black but i am going to keep the brown and gold. at some point i want to get it repainted but not change it just make it look alot cleaner. i think rims are a big next step...something with a good offset.

Two questions:

1. What size tires are those?

2. Can you open the hood with those mirrors on?

for some reason i having a brain fart but i think the tires are 170/60 14. and as for the hood.....haha yeah i can open the hood but i have to turn the mirrors up and out...i wasnt really paying attention when i put them on. o well it still opens ;)

and thanks for the comments. i got a new phone and was messing around with the camera on it. i guess it works pretty good. there will be more picutres to come in the future.

i'm hoping to get some new rims with a nice fat lip on it. nothing over 15" i think. i'll have to look around and try some on to figure out what would look best. any input would be welcome.

thanks, Josh

Too bad you are soo far away :(. I would trade you a sick set of 15x8 -20 boyd coddington's (have about 4" of lip) for that roof rack. I'd still do it if you covered shipping (I'm broke).

Let me know man! That rack is sick :D.

15x7 0" offset will work on front, any larger needs negative spacing, or big spacers. The 7" gave me about 1/4" clearance to the coilover.

Awesome good to know. I think 15x8 with negative offest could work nicely. I'll messure out and stuff when it comes time to order rims, I still need to change my suspension first.
