as usual you hit a home run OGB. You still looking at getting those Motegi Traklites ?

yeah, i really want the Traklites. But the clutch/flywheel kit had to take priority, it will be here Thursday. And my car will be back to 100% by Saturday. after the clutch is broken in and i help put back together an SRT-4 tranny(again), my friend and i will finally be able to settle the much anticipated race...

Garret 50trim SRT-4 with direct port meth on M&H Slicks vs Green'd and Meth'd WRX with new and improved stock rims and lightweight flywheel

we have been trash talking (for fun) for 2 weeks now and decided to make it a big money race... winner gets $5 and gets to claim the "Fastest 4 Banger" title :)

Those wheels painted yet?

I'm itching to do something to mine but I wanna see yours first :p

I'm wondering what looks good with DGM. I think probably silver but that's boring b/c they are already silver...

Black obviously is a good choice but I was also throwing around the idea of white. Might be a little boy-racer though.

not too shabby. What engine is that in the crx ?
its a non VTEC B18 that we are taking out. Putting in an LS VTEC motor.
In that picture i put an SRT-4 valve cover on top of the motor and then placed the Garrett 50 trim to make it look legit.
totally fake :)

So it's the duplicolor engine paint?

I bought some cans of the wheel coating but it's matte black. I plan to put clear on it for protection so I'm wondering what kind of finish it will have in the end.

Your car looks sick I can't wait to paint my wheels now.

yep, engine paint.

the paint i used is matte/flat black. i will leave them like that, no glossy finish. So if the paint chips i can just go get the can and touch it up.

thanks.

Is that the stock tires on there? The profile looks much smaller than a 50. Looks awesome, too bad the stockers are so heavy. The traklites you want...are you thinking of the original 5 spoke, or the 2.0's??
