Shot my dealer a message today to find out where I am in the ordering process and so forth. Asked about the Hurst shifter again but not really worring about it. Requested the badging delete except bowties and there all good with doing that, said they'd even hold some of my parts for me there with the car till I get back.

This quote is what hooked me here:
"Thomas
2lt- with the rs 28780 + t/l & doc fees
2ss-36380 +t/l & doc fees

and the deposit is $500 and we take your order as you want it not how we build it."

Tell her Thomas from Iraq sent you. Wont say you'll get a better deal and no I won't get a discount. But, she'd appreciate it.


She's good peoples. An my order form didn't came out around MSRP, haven't put down payment yet or discount but happy.

Also, shot a message putting my tire and wheel guy's together to figure out the particulars. Waiting on that too.

Discovered that I need to sell my Ford Explorer E.B. ed. Not sad as it was the Wifey's but not happy with all I've heard about he economy either. This should be fun. Maybe I should find an Explorer forum.

This is a friend (Shibby426)'s '69 Camaro SS from Cardomain and she has allowed me the use of a pic of her car to help explain what I really want from the people over at Spector Werkes.

Well, heard back from Dealer about status of Camaro. Unfortunately all I got were the dredded red x's and then it was also holiday weekend. By the way, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday.
But, on the other hand also I have not heard back about the fabled Defender and Dealer hook up for confirmation of delivery (not that I really needed to know) but, you know. Attempting to contact Brian again.

So, I can get a quote and pass on a big

Peace bit****..... Well, you know the rest.

Besides the fact that they offer extremely excellent wet and dry handeling performance. Which you can check easily enough without knowing a lot about tires on Nitto's website. It's in a graphic format. Would you believe I'm also a Engineering student. I understand more and more now how people just don't get what you do but make what they do look like magic. An have them look at you pretty much the same way.
Crap!!!! I'm growing up.

Anyway, here's a 3/4 pic of the tires. I also really like the tread pattern.
What tire brand is this - Any specs?

Specs

Yes actually I do have specs. These are the tires here, I could get more exact but I'd have to dig through about two months of emails back and forth with the shop I'm getting them from. A Tire Discount in Dayton, OH. Down the street from Dayton Wire Wheel. I started with 18x8's and 20.9.5 but moved to 20x8's and 20x10's in the end.

Nitto's
front-245/45R20 99W (Nitto model & stock number: INVO / 203-140)
rear-275/40R20 106W (Nitto model & stock number: INVO / 203-180)

The Invo's are considered a Luxery Sport High Performance an they have execellent wet/dry performance as well as good road noise levels. There line up is here: www.nittotire.com
You can also find a dealer near you through this site too. The website say they only have ZR's but the dealer told me they have R's as well in my size. You may find a bit off because we didn't dicker over the exact sizing as I already have wheels selected and they really need to fit that so I put them with a Gary over at Dayton Wire Wheel and there getting the final particulars straightened out. Usually the best choice.

An you just reminded me to shoot them another message too. Thanks. Hope this was helpful.

I'm spilling the beans because I got a real deal and these guy's deserve more customers reguardless.
Talked to Timmy from Addicted Auto Accessories and confirmed the Defender Werxes parts for paint and delivery. This guy was very helpful and patient, because all my dealings are through the WWW only at the moment, an I had to modify my order some too. It would seem that the Grill I wanted done in Galaxy Black can only be done in Chrome and Black Powder Coat. So, I've ordered:

Grill - Phantom (upper&lower) in Black Powder Coat
Sills - Door Sills in Black Powder Coat
G Cap - The Cap is now Black Powder Coat
Bowties - These are still coming in Galaxy Black for a slight difference in depth and texture.

They broke me off all this for real close to $1000 with shipping and handeling. An the Half grill would have been around $850 with S/H. This is also with 10% off across the board. So some will be that much off roughly. Now I think I should have asked about flat black for the gas cap. If anyone does this I'd love to see pics.

Is the explorer a V8 with 4WD? Is it old and worn out? If so, you might be eligible for one of the Cash for clunker Obama rebates if you trade it in. Check out ALL the rules on:

http://www.cars.gov/index.php/faq

and: http://www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/sbs.htm

You might be lucky if the Explorer qualifies. Just remember if you do, it id the government giving you the rebate, not the dealer, and Im sure dealers will try and act like they are giving this rebate out. I normally do not reccoment trading in, but 3500-4500 dollar rebate is pretty decent, and if your vehicle qualifies, it may be worth it. Just be carefull and read all the fine print... you are dealing with the Gub-Ment!

Explorer

Thanks LS3, but no. It's actually in real good shape minus the Wifes very recent collision which she say's only busted the tail light. I'll see when I get home. It's a 2007 Eddie B. with V6 and two-tone paint job. An it's also a 2WD with manual third row seating. An I just want to get rid of it. If I can get that rebait that'd rock but not planning on it or looking for it. Now if they give me cash for this thing I'll take it, as long as it covers what I owe.

Latest update and change to the original plans. The wheels are still being made by Dayton Wire, but have now adjusted again to have them be Galaxy Black and Chrome. Same look, spear tips and nipples. Signing the order form today and getting that project off the ground. We'll see how this turns out for real.

Ahh Supe, there's the rub. At the time I made my order the only way to get most of the interior options I wanted was to get the 2LT. Those are the wheels that come on the car, I have not upgraded them through my order. Although I will be keeping them and everything else stock that comes off the car. May want to put that stuff back on one day.
