Quoting ApexHunter:

I was actually just trying to give you a hard time on the pretty red belts but I did get a chuckle and mild hot import nights circa 2002 flashback out of the belt covers. But for real though that is a badass harness integration.

I ran 17x7, 17x8 on 1951. Cosmetically that car was a pile of poop by and large but the stagger looked sick. And that is coming from someone who typically only likes square setups on AWD platforms. I'm sure it will look awesome on 1837.




Well, it's a well known fact I'm a fan of ricer red. The belts just seemed to fit right in, so I figured what the hell. Never mind if they improve survivability during a crash, they're red!!!

When I bought these wheels, your old Galant was one of the first cars I thought of. I remember vividly how great the wheels on your car looked. Matter of fact, this is saved in my home under Favorite Threads: click




Quoting Turbro_Negro:

Wheels are dope my good sir. I approve!



I bet you do....Probably too white for you before.




Quoting LIV4PSI:

Wheels do look great. I didn't even recognize the color. Superb work like always Brett




Thanks, Craig! Now send me all that shiny Frontline Fabrication bullshit you bought so I can have the most baller GVR4 ever. I'm REALLY hoping to have this turd running in time to make it to the Shootout this year. Looking forward to seeing you there if I can finally pull it off.




Quoting turbowop:

I'm excited to see how those wheels look on the car. I'm surprised at the amount of lip for the given offset, especially on the 7" wide ones. I figured that in an offset required for our cars, there wouldn't be any lip and that is what makes those particular wheels look good, IMO. Where'd you source them?




I actually sourced them from Canadian Ebay. (89Patches, your country still sucks )

I think the concave spoke design helps facilitate a bit of a lip. At first look, I thought the spoke design would help clear my front brakes, even at the lower offset. At 7" wide, the front wheels still fall short of clearing the brakes by a few millimeters. I debated painting the lips, since I was going back and forth about the wheels looking too bling bling with polished lips. That's another reason I decided to go with the satin finish on the spokes. I felt the dull finish would offset the shiny lips nicely. I'm hoping they balance out well when I get them on the car. I'm also excited to see how they look, but definitely don't want them to look dubbed out or gaudy. We'll see I guess. I mocked them up when I first got them just to see how they cleared the brakes. One thing's for sure, they are definitely gonna poke a bit from the fenders. Here's a sneak peak:

It's all about the spoke curve in the design.

I realize that, but typically wheels that fit our cars don't have much lip regardless of spoke design. Unless you get an offset or width that requires some camber and tire stretch.

I guess the Works just work.

Did a little work on 18Turdy7.

New brake lines on all 4 corners. Started with the fronts:




Then did the rears. New calipers, rotors, dust shields, and brake lines installed:



Getting finished up under the hood:

Looks good man, I don't know if i like that filter placement though. I feel it needs to be under that white box you made to keep from pulling in hot air from the fans etc.......

Actually, that's exactly what I did. I've got a 3" aluminum intake pipe routed to the MAF that's located on the other side of the cover. I'll post some pics of it in a bit.
