Story:

I bought the summer wheels/tires and had a rubbing issue, hence the coilover purchase. They still rub a little in the rear so I'm going to have to raise the rear a tad. Right now it's at 13"

The front mount intercooler is powdercoat black. Perrin has stopped making this item due to its expense and the lousy powdercoat. You can see in the first pic from Jeff's going away party that it was all chipped up. Today I zapped it with a bit of rustoleum and walla! All black again!

Sorry, I don't know why those two are rotated, but I can't seem to fix it. I will also appologize for my lower quality point and shoot driveway pics as well :D

Damn! I was gonna make a smart-ass comment about this being the best-looking conversion from an '01 to an '07, but you fixed the title just in time. :lol:

That intercooler looks waaaaaay better now!

that's how we ninja do it...faster than you can react to :wink:

I'm pretty sure that my battle to keep the intercooler black is going to be an ongoing one.

except for the weird cropping, everything has returned to normal.
