thats what he means. mask the tires off. you could use some tire cleaner to try to get it off. next time, get some index cards, and shove the edge between the rim and tire so you dont have to do that.

Thanks! Good luck finding those wheels. :P Best luck is in Sweden or Norway. Since they are swedish made. The production ended in the second half of the 90's

I know, I've given up on them really. But I was drooling over all the ones I saw when I was there for Vallåkra this past August!

It'd make it a ton better if you just sprayed the tires black now

looks kinda cool, stance is okay but what's with all the gadgetry and cage for something that doesn't even make that much power? m46 is a dead giveaway that it can't be that fast.

Shifter position and basket don't look like those of an M46 though. Maybe it's a swap and the shifter was reused?

I was just thinking here: I would like to weld a M46 shifter on the base for the T5 shifter, so I can make it look more factory.

Even if its not that fast, you would still want to keep an eye on all the stuff going on under the hood and why not put a roll cage in if you're tracking it?

that car makes me want to get it that low, and it shows you can fit wheels that are wider than 7.5 inches in the back fairly easily..
