Something so small but critical

At this point, I'm just frustrated!
My car has been out of commission for 3 weeks now. I'm wondering if I should have even tackled this.
Then, I think to myself, I will love the end result.

This has been done before....but to me it will be a complete change

Here is another teaser (wont be a teaser after this)!
Its more challenging to get parts up here in Toronto (Canada) to do these mods at a reasonable $$

I'm just dying to get my ride back

99% done. I think.

I almost got a VIP first viewing on Monday as I was near to his home but he informed me in the last minutes that small parts are needed.

Lol! You of all people know how long I've been sourcing all the parts to finally install them.
Now....hopefully everything is in to finish it.

Unfortunately it is 95% complete waiting on another part that did not arrive.

Damn.....1 month without my car is nuts

I ... can't ... wait ... any ... longer!

Honestly, I'm champing at the bit like a thoroughbred. I'm checking your thread twice a day for updates and photos ... particularly photos, so don't think the interest has subsided. I'm hooked and completely

The teaser shots of the wheels make me want to see more ... NOW!

Vassi ... Vassi ... Onivar!

Lol!
Thought this died along with my patience on parts to arrive in. LOL
The car is 99% done.
One final price that should arrive on Wednesday.
It got pics that I may just post up and them post of shots once cleaned up

Question for everybody.... My OEM wheel locks do not fit my new wheels. What are all you running or what can you recommend?
Car is currently at the shop on 4 bolts....
I need wheel locks asap

Im assuming you're using stock bolts now vs a wheel lock?
There is a company called Rimlox that Im contemplating on using but they are $400 for a set.
Not sure if I want to dish that out....but they do guarantee your wheels cannot be stolen. If stolen, you get new wheels.
Im sure the car will be gone if they couldn't take the wheels on the spot, but on the bright side, you get new wheels.... LMAO

What happen with your spoiler?
