that looks great :thumbsup: , wish I had the factory wheels (they found their way on the 01 when I traded it in since I wanted to keep the BBS wheels and the 01 factory wheels had snow tires mounted on them ). At least I have something to use when the temperatures drop too low for summer tires.

do you know where I can get a predator at a decent price. Somewhere I say $399 theres gotta be a cheaper price somewhere. I feel uneasy about a used one that we see on svtp or other forums. Maybe one of the club vendors sell and can offer a member discount. anybody know??

How long per wheel did it take you to do this. I thought about buying one of those Mother's cleaning/stripping balls and hook it to my cordless drill and do mine. They look great.

The most time consuming part is jacking up the car and taking off wheel and so on and so on. The aircraft cleaner is some strong stuff so its messy work but it just desolves the paint. It took me about 4 hours for all the wheels. and you know I took a few breaks in there too. If you like I can email you the link from svtp with detailed instructions

I'll check and see what we can get a Predator for and let you know...as far as the pullies, I think Billetflow only did a certain number of Comp. Orange one's...I didnt know they had run out, but silver would look good too :thumbsup: ...you could always have a local powdercoater do them, if you really wanted them that color.

They aren't one of a kind, but they were a limited number made by Billet Flow. You may beable to get them used, but I've learned not to purchase stuff used anymore.
Go with the clear (silver) they look just as good! :thumbsup:
