    Very, very nice, Mike! It's a beauty! What seats are you using ... those don't look like Kirkey's?

    Thanks, Mike. Any chance you could post a picture of the seats and perhaps give a model number. They look pretty darn cool from the picture you posted of the interior.

    Very sharp looking. If I may ask, having not read the build thread, could amber turn lights on the rear be used also? I know builders can modify almost everything to their taste, but is there a MA DMV regulation that prohibits those? My experience is that the ambers on the outboard side of the reds send a clearer signal on which way one is turning. Just my curiosity. I should probably ask FL builders that one as mine will registered there. Very nice work..

    I've been hearing rumors that some have found it necessary to add wheel spacers at the rear. Did you?

    The video on the FFR site is a bit messed up regarding backspacing and offset. If you get a chance, please *measure* the backspacing of your wheels.

    Why am I asking you, on this thread? Because your build and your photos are both excellent, good enough to show others exactly where the wheels and tires end up the way you did it.

    Thanks!

    I used 1.5 thick wheel spacers.

    Wow. That looks about right to me -- meaning without the spacers those wheels must have looked really sucked in!

    Rear only, I presume? No spacers at the front?
