    You must be getting excited. I remember when I sent my last Mustang off for paint. I was on pins and needles till it got back. :nice:

    Honestly, not really. I think the last body shop burned me pretty good so I'm hesitant to get even slightly excited for my car.

    Has no one had gold wheels like that?

    I think with the right set up you could pull it off

    Lmfao! That's 7 years of caked on dirt that I haven't cleaned off yet haha. I'm going 5 lug anyways so I'm just keeping them on there so it can roll.

    I can't decide what wheels I want, though .Black with polished lip FR500's or all chrome FR500's. I love chrome, but the cowl of my hood will be black and so will my mirrors, so I was thinking the black FR500's would look awesome :shrug:

    I'd go with the black lipped personally. But i'm pretty biased. Not a big fan of chrome wheels.

    coming along man! i'm a little biased towards black/polished lip wheels, but i think chrome wheels will pop more on a sonic blue car.

    Actually the only reason I'm considering the black ones is because they're roughly $60 cheaper per wheel. But, the whole project has gone way passed my projected finish time, so what's a few more weeks of saving money to buy the wheels I actually want. I think I've settled on the chrome lol

    I envy you for this. When my car got painted at the end of October I was cool and collected for a couple weeks. Then I was just itching to get it back. When I finally got it back it only took me 4 days to put everything back together again...I was also "working" full time during that 4 days.

    It'll probably take me a couple of weeks to get my car completely sorted out lol. I'll have to save up for my wheels, but other than that i've got everything ready to go in. I think
