Yea I think you are right....I haven't even thought about the colors. The guys at the shop commented on the quality of the wheels...props to AEV.

Wow I really like how quickly this build is coming together. I am actually really excited to see it all together. I just got my 285 duratracs and i feel your pain just seeing them sit there unused just itching to be abused haha Congratulations on the buy and on all the parts this thread is starting to look REAL GOOD

When you install you drain valve, but some liquid gasket on the fiber seal you have. Mine has a slight seep now. I get the odd drip on the driveway and the bottom of the oilpan is damp. I know it is the valve as I used engine cleaner and there is no oil above the area. The valve is brass, so don't over tighten.
Looking good, you'll love the lift, it is how the WK should have come from the factory. Looks awesome.

Fedex dropped off my Grote housings for my Cibie lights this morning...still waiting on my Cibie lights to show up...quick test fit. I think they will look good...should I paint the housings black? Leaning that way.

Idk man that silver is a nice contrast to the matrix and makes both pieces stand out .... I'd leave it silver
