Ok not some but alot....

Well, prob not alot, but it sure did feel like it, cause of all the time it took....

1.Re-Painted "Krylon Fusion" All my pieces that were painted in my interior from White, to a glossy black...

2.Set a appointment, do get my wheels re-powdercoated, different color, have to wait and see, some people might know.

3.My truck is going to be about 4" wider "widetrack edge "

4.Took off the "Windshield" decal, its coming back on a later date to match the wheels...

Stay tuned, pics of some mods to come soon, just thought i'd let you guys know.

Whole new look...

So Leo....Widetrack Edge, huh? I like that idea.

Although you've got me curious as to how you're going to pull this off.....I once thought about doing something like that...

I was going to use the fiberglass pre-runner fenders as well as the bed, do about a 5/7 drop, and run some 2" adapters all around combined with some wide tires to give a "touring car" look, if you know what I mean.

But then I met Steve Saleen at a local car show, and the rest is history. He drove his Saleen XP8 to the event, and he showed me all the details about it. I was sold.

I assume your thinkning about a street setup, seeing as you're keeping the Cobras.....if you need any help/pointers on the suspension setup for good handling and whatnot, give me a holler.

If you're staying stock height.....then I can't help you

I can't wait to see what you've got planned.

So you're seriously going to use 2" adapters?

Make sure the ones you get have stronger studs than the last ones....

Or are you BSing? :D

Actually, on the last ones, they were only 1" , i had to cut the stock studs down to make the wheel sit flush with the adapter, but like an idiot, i didnt, this caused the stock lugs to push the wheel away.

So the wheels were on like half way on the adapters lug, so thus, they snapped, this time, i wont have to cut the stock bolts, i never did, thats why they snapped, the adapters are strong as ****, it was my own dumbass fault, if i knew what i know now, i would still have the l-wheels...

but oh well, u live and u learn, and now, its gonna be sweet....

My tires tuck WWAAYYY to much anyway, damn 5.95 backspacing stang wheels....

Sounds cool....

But most importantly, keep an eye on your wheel bearings....especially if you intend to drive fast through the twisties...speaking of which, I need to re-do mine.

I hope this works

oh i will, i spoke to a guy about the adpaters, he told me, as wide and as much backspacing i have with those wheels, it hurt more to keep them like they are now, cause they are so wide, and the big tire wasnt helping, so this should even it out alittle, but you can only believe so much, ill keep and eye on em, thanks...

Just watch your wheelberrings. Hanging the balancing points out that far will definetly have an effect on your focus points for the weight of the vehical on them.

well, my wheels have 5.95 backspacing, take two inches, its still enough, not to make or put any stress on the wheel bearings, there was more stress with them as they were....
