Default Yay or nay?

Well I figured if I'm gonna keep my ole LT1 around, I should make it stand out in a way that will not look like shit.



As you guys might know, someone backed into me last weekend so I'm going to replace the cracked fender, get a new hood and re paint the mismatched color nose. After that, a new suspension setup, and maybe a t56 swap, I think these wheels will be on my list of things to do.

What do you guys think?

I like the wheels!!

FYI - Headlight covers are sort of a pain... They are installed by drilling holes in the front portion of the the Surrounds for an L Bracket, which looks like ass without the cover on, and probably not very good even with with clear covers on - Hence why you don't see too many that have them.

A lower stance always looks better than the original factory off road height...

Yeah it gives me motivation to lower the car, just gotta keep saving. Headlight covers look too outdated and only look good on Monte Carlo's.

I would like to make some projectors with a square black housing

Those are nice wheels, what brand? I prefer polished or silver but they look good.

And nice save on the headlight covers LOL

I agree, silver or machined would look best.
