Ordered new wheels for the car already. They're Drag DR-19s, same size and dimensions. They're supposed to arrive today and will be put on sometime next week, or later because of the holidays.

Wheels Came in. Picture

Update:
Ordered some Halo/Projector Fog lights that will be getting installed once they get here. We're going to be swapping out the halo color to Orange to match the car.

The Calipers will be getting painted red next week when Spring Break Starts for me.

The Bow Tie will also be getting wrapped in CF & the gills in Gloss Black. Will post up pictures as parts come in and progress gets made.

Finished installing the custom projector/halo fog lights today. Only thing left to do it is aim them and then make a custom housing for the switch. These things are "MONSTERS". They're bright as heck and the halos look great (blue as of now, orange in the future).
Here's a link to them in case anyone's interested- http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Compl...Q5fAccessories

The install was rather easy (props to GTAHVIT for the Front Bumper removal ).

Here's some pictures of the install.

Mounting the fog lights in to the front bumper. I drilled holes to use the bracket the fogs came with, a custom bracket could also be fabricated to use the OE fog lights.



I wrapped all the wiring in that protective plastic (forgot the real name) and then tucked it all away as well as mounted the relays & fuses out of the way. The relays are hooked up to the front fuse box positive post and then there's 2 buttons on the remote, one for halos, one for fogs.







Tucked some wiring under this plastic

Switch to turn them on/off. (currently routed through the fender and hanging under the steering column, until a housing is made).

Final Product:



(There's a little gap, but that allows for adjustment, might fix in the future )

Here they are on during the day


Dark garage...meet projector fogs(Un-aimed):



The halos on at night:



A few head on shots of the fogs(Still Un-aimed)




No I don't have Purple HIDs in these fogs, I don't know why the heck the light appears to be purple in the picture, they definitely aren't in real life

Finally finished painting the calipers on the car. Here's some shots of the car outside in the sun, sorry for the numerous pictures, I got a little camera happy. The gills have also been blacked out.

Update:

Bought a factory RS package Spoiler off a member here a while back and finally got around to installing it.

Install was simple, after two trips to Home Depot and finally getting the right size drill bit , and I'd have to say it makes a subtle but nice difference .

Anyways here are some pictures:

I was just eyeballing those same fogs online. Did you buy the oem fog light bezels with the backs cut out for this? I'm wondering if I could use the same fogs you got but use the stock bezels and just drill holes in the back for the wiring. Might make the gap not be a problem?

Sorry man I didn't notice you had posted this. I just used the stock LS bezels and then cut the middle part out. If you cut around the very middle (idk how else to explain it) you'll have absolutely no gap. The problem then is that you can't aim the fogs and I don't know how well they're aimed like that.

On another note the car finally got it's windows tinted a few days ago. I'll get some pictures up soon.
