Finally got the rims and springs on!

Installed the rims yesterday but without bthe TPS! had to buy 4 new ones from dealer for $8 a piece. Lowering springs came in so I took to a friends shop and had them install the springs and TPS. Looks awesome but honestly would have liked it a bit lower. I went with the extreme lowering springs which brings the front -1.8 and rear -1.7. Thought that might be too low but it's not. Boy it does look good now! The nice metal Break covers are in next week so pics soon (weather permiting)
Of course with my luck they snapped the sway bar connctor and could not get one till noon tomorrow and i will be in Key West by that time. they said it is no harm to drive without. said it would just not handle as good. No worries as I'm not racing corners. The only road to the keys is a very straight one at that! Should be getting my Roto Fab next week as well.
Man this car is starting to look really good!
