Perfect, out of my garage and into something useful.  At $250 at steal I might add surprise

I couldnt beat 75 bucks thats for sure. especially to have a good set of mechanical gauges to help monitor my my motor which will be heavily abused lol.

These are the wheels you are looking for, with NT01s or RE71s.  Probably not in the budget @ $400.

I actually have 2 17x10.5" concave 10th anniversary cobra wheels for the rear i paid 60 bucks for, and i already had 2 17x10.5 with tires on them. the parts car i got had 2 17x10.5 saleens with tires so i am trading those for the 2 i had in my garage and then adding the 60$ i paid for the extra 2 onto the budget. when the fender flares come in i will start test fitting the front wheels as i need all the clearance i can get to fit 315 tires on the front of a foxbody lol. its going to be extremely wide lol

Well after finding out about the self trade ordeal im happy to be able to use my old roh wheels. Id live to use the rpf1 but that wouldnt be allowed as they weren't cheap.

Finally put on the wheels ill be using for the competition. Some old school roh wheels. 17x9.5 with 275/40 square set up. I like how they look and fit i just dont like how much they weigh. A small price to pay. 

 

Pimpin aint easy.

So build update. 

Suspension is done minus cc plates and subframe connectors.

Nitrous bottle brackets are going to get mounted this week and i can finally test the nitrous system out. If it is successful then i am going to the track! Car will be painted very soon and then i will start applying decals i have for it!

well finally got the car painted. need to even out a few areas but i took it to a car meet today and everyone thought it was either sanded down to the metal or that it was cleared metal etc. point is i got what i wanted, the brushed metal look with silver paint and the process of antiqing. 

 

it is finally coming together and starting to look a little more "raw" which is exactly what i wanted.
