Your car made a huge impression on me - right down to the silver trunk liner!!
I'm on board for this year as well - good luck in the judging.
See you then.

Thank you!!

Wheels are Rotiform MLW's, tires are Falken Azenis RK-15's

Fronts are 17x8 ET 28 with 225/45
Rears are 17x9.5 ET 19 with 255/40

They turned out even better than I had hoped!

The right stance is just above where it scrapes along the bottom at your driveway approach..... your ride height may vary.
