Soo i told myself that i was going tokeep this car pretty much stock and up untill now ive only done coilovers and a few sets of wheels. but i cant take it anymore it was a long and cold winter and i bought a bunch of things haha.

Apr stg 2+ with hpfphttp://img.photobucket.com/albums/v210/jarad/photo-29.jpg

First up was the s- line bumper, i put it on the same day i sold my wheels for the winter. the bumper has scratches so will be repainted.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v210/jarad/photo-14.jpg
So some asshole decided to back into my car last month messing up my hood...http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v210/jarad/hoodfail.jpg
so now im Dropping off my car on 3/12/2011 to have the hood repaired, Front bumper Painted, side Skirts painted and window trim and grill trim painted.
Next up are my porsche twists i bought off of a vortex member.. well lets just say they were in horrible shape,and came packaged so bad it was almost funny " one came with no cardboard and no label, i was lucky i even got it " bent outers and inners all the bolts had corrosion on them all of that, well after a few days of tlc with them i got them cleaned up a bit and split so i can have the centers powder coated

Now heres the huge problem with these wheels, they are discontinued so finding new lips for them is pretty much impossible unless they are 3" or 3.5" and after adapters theyre just not fitting.and these stock lips are weakkkk. because of the small centers no one makes lips that will fit these!

luckily i came across thatcher schultz and he is hooking me up!, i wont be able to get them untill late april but im willing to wait it out. i will be doing 2" and 2.5" i also purchased some kinesis center caps from him bc i think they flow better and 7.5" kinesis barrels.

So before i drop my car off i will be installing my FMIC so i can get it all fitted nicely so i dont have to take the bumper off again after paint. i went with the god speed because, its good enough for me i know people who are happy with it and its a great price.

the exhaust will be going on as soon as my friend makes my new tips for me, along with my s4 rear valence and then i will be getting chipped. i will update the thread as the progress happens[wrench]
and heres who will be helping me out along the way

I like the 997 wheels better, but the twisties will turn some heads. The other mods are going to be worth every penny. Good luck with the build.

Glad to see you getting that hood fixed. I see you opted to go with a test pipe with your Milltek exhaust; great choice! Keep us posted with up to date progress. Good luck! [up]

what were the original specs on the twists when you got them?
3" isn't sounding too bad.

03-07-2011, 12:00 PM
They were 18x9.5 and 8.5 with 1.5" lips.
With a 3" lip I'd be at et10 which can be done, but I'd have to kill my fenders haha
