New paint/fender flares/wheels/TKO600 transmission

update image

After living with 15” wheels and tires for waaay too long, I finally took the plunge and got a set of Outcast fender flares from Rob Booth. Original intent was to fit them then paint the car below the belt line. Bodywork took me longer than expected but I’m happy with my results. In addition to adding the flareas and stretching the fenders out, I removed the door cladding as well. I also painted it myself…a first. I put on a gallon of clear then color sanded/buffed for a really nice finish. Wheels are now 245/40/17’s on 8” rims up front and 255/40/17’s on 9” rims in the rear.
