New Paint

Now the rebuild can begin....

Still need to have the wheels redone (maybe even polished)

No, I only had the lowers painted.
They did an OK job on the match, but I just didn't have the budget or desire to have the whole car painted. I would have liked to but had to draw the line somewhere.

Nice wheels...

Bryan,
Are those Moda/Radius R6 wheels? They look great on the 500!

Oh...and the painted panels look awesome!

Thanks Glen !

They are Moda R6 staggered 18x8/9, a bit heavy but easy to clean.

Thumbs up

The R6 is a really nice looking wheel. I used to run a set of 17 x 7.5's on my 16V...have them on the wagon now

Do you still participate on Stu's and Richard's list? I haven't been subscribed in years...
