Well I decided to plasti dip my tail light bezels and side letters. I either didn't spray it on thick enough, or didn't let it dry long enough. It ripped and peeled everywhere. I didn't cover enough of the car with paper when I sprayed the bezels and ended up with over spray all over the rear panels! So much for being lazy and trying to save some time, ended up spending 2 hours claying and buffing the rear of the car. Then taking the bezels off and painting them.
I got it all off the rear, but couldn't get all of it out of the letters. I pulled them off and just ordered a new set. Looking at the car now, I need to get rid of the rims. I thought the polished ones would look good on the car, but they stand out like a sore thumb now that there is no chrome left!
Time to do some shopping, any opinions on a nice set of black wheels?

Pulled the trigger on some new shoes, should be here next week will post pics then.
20x8.5 265/45/20 and 20x10 295/40/20
And if what I am reading is true, they will be about 3-4 lbs lighter at each corner!

Took the car back to storage today. Weather report says sub-freezing temperatures for at least 10 more days. My wife wants her heated garage back until then.
Oh well at least it gives me more time to make the wheel and tire decision, I have it narrowed down to 4 sets of wheels and 3 sets of tires. I'll be sure to post pictures whenever I decide.
On a negative note, I noticed a long scratch on my passenger side interior door panel that I could not see in the garage. So I will be working on fixing that as soon as I get it home.

Ordered another set of wheels last night, we'll see if these ones get shipped. 8.5" fronts and 10" rears with Cooper Zeon RS3-S 245/45/20 and 275/40/20's. I'll get pictures up as soon as I get them. I'll have to weigh them when they come in but if the list weight is right I'll save 14lbs up front and 20lbs in the rear between wheels and tires.

Just dropped the wheels and tires off to be mounted and balanced. Had to order different lug nuts, the ones I have are too wide. I put in the red led footwell lighting this weekend. I was able to run it to come on with the gauge lights, so it will be on when the doors are open and whenever the lights are on, looks awesome! Cell phone wouldn't take good pictures, charging the battery on the Nikon will post pictures inside and out after the wheels are on and I wash it up.

Put the wheels on last night, threw them on the scale before installing. 55.1 lbs front and 56.8 lbs rear. That's a good loss of 37.2 lbs overall. Stocks weighed in at 62.3 lbs front and 68.2 lbs rear! Only cell phone pictures, but it was raining last night. Looks like the weather report says 50 and clear tonight, going to wash and wax after work.
