OK so I seen this on the Pro-Touring site and I think this CAN have the potential to turn into a sticky worthy thread. There are a lot of threads asking will this look good on this etc or What wheels & tires will fit this?. So this is a chance to both show off what you have as well as inform others of what they can do to their cars.

Please copy and paste the Text below to your post and simply add your information to it. Then add a picture of your car for everyone to see those nice Hoops!

Thanks a lot Brady! :D

The front air dam is part of an old-school Kenne Bell setup. It was on the car when I got it. That part hasn't been made in years and is hard to find. But I did recently talk to a guy who expressed an interest in making a mold and producing them again. So we will see what happens. :cool:
