18" Tarmac II's Color Variations

Gun Metallic-----------> week one, with brake pad dust.
Full Royal Gun Metallic: wait two weeks, take finger and wipe off spokes.
Tadaaaaa! you too can have em all.

For Bronze use different pads, such as Ultimates or something.
For Black, just wait a month no matter what pad you have.

RR

edit:
For Bronze start with Gold and apply same process... although doing the full royal gun metallic mod could result in something very blingy

And the lights are for doing Night Time Road Rallies such as THESE

Boy I would hate to be the person who cuts you off. All you need is a set of hella supertones. on the front. I see that you got your subaru from culver city subaru. Too bad they killed it. I test drove my WRX there.

Kudos, that is looking real good. I dig the rims big time. I'm still in the air between those and the SDR's. Nice work!

I can't really comment on them. I am only powering them off of the Pioneer HU and it only puts out about 22w, and the Focals have a nominal rating of 75w. They sound like cr@p right now, but I think that will change when I hook them up to my RF 200ix at 100x2. I'll have a stereo install pictoral and infomation added to this thread when it becomes available in a couple weeks. Right now I only have time to focus on an up coming road rally.

as for the install. they are a complete beotch. They are very deep and require the biggest spacer you will fit in the door panel. BUT it was loads easier than jamming 6.5" MB Quart COMPS in a 4" hole in the rear doors

The key is not looking at them all when you drive. It would make you kinda kookoo if you try looking at eveything. Most of it is there for looks, I think the only thing I look at when I drive is the GPS unit and I check the voltmeter when the lights are running on occasion.

Supertones are on the way... along with some FIAMMs and yeah its a bit disorienting when I come up behind someone with all guns a blaze

you should have seen it when I had my laptop running mapping software on the LCD. and then there's the scanner and CB units, the multiple clocks and rally timing gear

yeah it was nuts.

We are back to something a little more normal now.


Thanks to everyone for all the compliments, makes it all worthwhile.
