Looks nice, base model? Looks great with the grey plastic painted white and with the GTU rims.

Yeah, I edited my post too late. They look great.

Did you respray or polish the wheels? They look like new.

If I do this it's gonna be with Alsa killer chrome, it's creates the perfect chrome finish without the chrome price, I thought about doing some under the hood stuff not anything that gets hot but odds and ends then clearing it with some good ppg dc3000 or their new dc2000 super fast dry if I get a quasar I'm gonna do the center with the chrome and the rest accented with blue

because companies hire incapable car illiterate people to do car repairs... why hire someone who's trained to do it? they would be way to expensive to have on the payroll.

is it possible to put Z26 rims on backwards ? lol.. the slots on one side of the car are forward facing, if you look at the other side they go the other way. the rims on my wifes lumina are the same way, they face opposite directions on each side of the car.

Z26 wheels aren't directional like Indy/GTU wheels are.. I think they would look better if they were though
