Sweet.
I'm kinda digging the Virgos on the blue car to be honest.

I do too. They're one of my favorite OEM wheels. I've just had these Ronal's for FOREVER, and I've been wanting to throw them on a 240 since my '89.

Thanks much! I really dig the black headlight surrounds!

I was also thinking of swapping to a flathood with the quad rounds, but this coffin hood grows on me more and more every day.

I'm starting to see that it might look out of place on my car for right now at least.

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE the flathood with quad squares, but I'm really liking the coffin hood too, so it's not a priority at all at this point. :D

I'm not really sure if I'm going to. If I do, I'm not planning on cutting them near as much as I did on my other car.

I'm hoping I'll get lucky at the JY some day and find some IPD sway bars eventually. I have some GT firewall braces though, that I'll throw on soon.

I'm debating on cutting the springs today or tomorrow, and just doing an alignment myself as close as I can. Suggestions?

how long before you can do coilover stuff in the front?

90 for the colman stuff 100 on struts and 75 on springs. cut chop weld and get bushings for the strut mounts and you're set.

Car has Gas-Adjusts in the rear just like my '89 had, weird. lol. Also still has the front air dam scoop on it. I think today I might put the GT firewall braces on it. Been sitting in the shop since last Davis.

Hopefully! :P my 244 was so twisted that they wouldn't line up with the mounting points on the firewall. Did you ever end up having someone do your alignment or has it just been you aligning it?
