maybe because it's an 89 homie

hahaha

as for suspension, I might just do the fronts....the rears are fine for now, it's just the 3+" gap in the front is what's disturbing..lol (maybe some tokiko struts, stock springs)

tint is on the way...hopefully some 12% in the next few weeks

and the wheels...they are gonna stay for now...but looking at some 195/45ZR rubber hehe

oh, and the mirrors and turn signals are going to be painted flat black and stained glass amber, respectively

That won't fix the wheel gap problem though.. so with AAS the rears adjust too right? So with the stock rears, you can adjust the back but not the front right? That could be interesting...

If life were easy, everyone would do it.

are you sure it won't fix the gap? tokiko struts in a Z with stock springs drop it 2" lower than stock.....

and yes, all four struts have the AAS motors. I actually think it would be nice to have a lowered from end, but keep the rear stock...because the rear is only about a 1.5-2" gap, instead of the almost 4" in front.

No, you were correct in the first place.

Thats an aftermarket windshield. Looks like the place half assed it and put a chrome windshield seal in instead of the stock black.

All Gt's do have black trim in the US. Specifically its window trim, in which case his is still black. It was just the windshield that was replaced with the nasty chrome.

Looks really clean, just maybe get the mirrors painted. They look a little faded. Also, why not resize the pics rather then just saing 56k dies or whatever. I mean, I have broadband and its not the time it takes to download that bothers me, just the fact that you can't see the whole pic without scrolling up, down, left and right even with my monitor on 1600X1200.

I told the wife of the cost for replacement AAS struts...told her the suspension I want is 1/3 of that (K Sports) and she grudgingly agreed !
