It looks like they cut the front and rear fenders to fit the 26's. Notice the uneven, wavy fender cuts at 1:50 and 2:30 in the video. I'm sure the inner fender wells are cut too. It's a quick way to destroy a car.
That GB Packers car is horrible too.

Anyone going to the cruz-in at Freddy's Custard & Steakburger this afternoon at 3? Corner of Orange grove and Thornydale.

I will keep my ears open as well.

Just ordered a Pfadt Stage 2 Performance Kit. Anybody have experience installing lowering springs and front/rear sways? Doesn't look too hard, but probably a PITA to do in the garage on jack stands. Looking for good installer and good alignment shop recommendations.

Also looking for a pair of stock 20x9 rims. Got the track bug bad and its hard to find sticky tires for the front 20x8 rims. Plan to upgrade to black chrome IVS rims for daily use soon.

Took me all day but I did my Eibach 1" lowering springs myself. I borrowed some spring compressors but didn't end up needing em. I took it to Watson (Peter) for the alignment. Haven't done sway bars but the rear looks pretty easy. I've heard you have to lift the engine block if you don't want to cut the front to remove it.

Thanks everybody, it isn't something regarding a problem I caused, my boss can no longer invest into the company with the results he is getting, he will either close or sell off. Either way I will be searching.

I still need to swap the ss stuff onto my car but from what I've been told it's pretty easy. I just don't want to do it at my apartment complex. I was hoping to have a house by now to do it at. But if you need any help I'd be glad to give you a hand so I know exactly what to do when I do mine.

There's a yellow SS down here in Douglas with this set up. He has not had any problems. I was thinking about this set up also.

Who is planning on coming down to S.V. this Saturday. You guys can take exit 283 for a scenic ride and good photo opportunties. I drive that road when I am not in a rush to get back home. Back in the mid 80s, a Camaro I-ROC by DPS would "watch" that road and in the early 90s DPS put an SVT Mustang on that road.

Hey I looked up that hideaway headlight grille I was telling you I saw a long time ago. It was called the ******* Grille. Looks like the company is a joke and the product will probably never be available from what I gather on here but it was a good concept.
