Re: Very nice convertible (BenES)

Wow! Nice! Do you happen to know what rims that person has? Also size and stuff? That dish is pretty nice. That person might want to do something about that grille though. Looks a little tacky.

Re: Very nice convertible (GShyneDM)

Gonna get the tracking number around noon or so. Supposedly they were shipped out already. Most likely will put the car on jack stands with the wheels off, then just drop the old rims/tires to the local tire shop and ask them to put on the new rims. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emsmile.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/embeer.gif" BORDER="0"> Can't wait...

Re: Very nice convertible (GShyneDM)

Well, they still haven't sent them out yet as of today. Supposedly one of the wheels' clear coat came out pretty bad, so they are "working on it". Will overnight them to me as soon as they are done....either tomorrow or Wed., who knows.

Plus, the grille finish is not as awesome as yours! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emwink.gif" BORDER="0"> The owner didn't bother to fill up the indentation/impression from the slash and badge on the grille.<p>Some bondo body filler will go a long way. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0">

I might swap it out again. I won the MS Design grill (the one you have) from ebay so we'll see how that one will turn out (have to repaint though). Once, I decide on one, I'll sell the other ones.

For the price of ONE rim, hell yeah, I would expect that sort of service, probably even more.

But I have yet to find anyone that will drill them for our cars. 17" they are around $190. ACE doesn't sell them blank, so you'd have to find a smaller diameter and have it drilled larger? Of corse, with the right offset too! They look sharp, theres a black S70 that I've seen pics of with the 'platinum' dark silver finish- oooh its tight! So if anyone finds out of a place state side that has them or can make them let me know!! <p>By the way, I didn't see them on the SAM site, just some split 6 spokes.

Re: Very nice convertible (GShyneDM)

Almost sounded like a bad excuse, but I'm not going to jinx myself, gonna let it slide..and want to see if they will indeed send me this 'something' they promised to do as something else kinda got screwed up earlier.
