Thanks!

I've gone ahead and put the clears back on the corners, you all were right, it does look better with clears.

I did the fender roll, but it wasn't enough for 12mm spacers on the rear, so when I get the alignment done, I'm thinking slight camber will solve that issue.

I'll post updated pics after the alignment.

Thanks to everyone for the positive comments, and advice!

Looks good!

I would also suggest black grills, shadow line trim the pillars, black out the bumper grills, and body matched reflectors on the front. I think that would really set it off.

Hey Tasi,

I could have sworn I saw your car in Belmont by an Arco station a couple weeks ago. Was that you by any chance?

I thought that was you. Seeing your car reminded me of how badly I need coilovers. Good stance and clean car.

A drop on your car would set it off for sure!

Thought I read something about you shaving the rear fender? Did you do it yourself, or take it to a pro? How's that working for you, any issues?

I had my fenders shaved at Sonic Motorsports in Mountain View. http://www.sonicms.net/index2.html They did a really good job. I had to trim the plastic inner fender liner after and I also ground the extra material off the stud that holds the end of the bumper cover. Before I had them shaved, I would rub horribly with even just myself and a passenger. Since I had them done, I have had 4 people + a cooler full of food + bags for a weekend trip and no rubbing at all. Just sitting there, the rear was tucking almost to the rim. I have 19x9.5 et40 with 265/30s and 1.8 degrees of camber in the rear. I am still deciding what coilovers I want to go with but it will either be KW v2s or TCKlines with Swift springs. If you rub now in the rear, I would definitely recommend shaving the fenders. It really makes a huge difference.
