    Painted stock rims black with the chrome spots left like the moto metals just a lot cheaper and was happy with outcome. Then purchased kobalt toolbox. And at some point purchased 1.25" wheel spacers [​IMG]
    Painted toolbox and chrome grille surround black to keep my theme black/indigo ink pearl going. [​IMG][​IMG]

    Installing the spindles was a pain in the ass. Tc made it impossible almost to tighten or thread the nut on upper controll arm. Then brakes gave me trouble. Start to finish took a day and a half, but if I had to do the spindle install again I think it'd go faster now that I know how to. The front is a little nose high but it's only a very little bit. And I like the look. Here are some more pictures. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks man. I'm happy with how she's transformed over the years. Now I just have to figure out the new tick noise coming from underneath.
