You got a photo to throw my way?
I don't mind if you post it here or just give an external link.
Sorry it took so long for me to reply, I let a buddy borrow them while his car was getting repainted.

Here's what I was talking about:
face looks good


Dish not so much

Ah yeah, I see what you're saying. Those wheels look like they've seen a few winters.
A good sandblasting and a coat of paint would sort that right out.

Nice. Did you paint/powdercoat your stock lateral links or are they aftermarket?

I haven't run the setup enough to really notice a difference in the wear. It may be a little excessive, but the grip seems to be better on my daily drive.

Unfortunately the sakura season is done in my part of Japan. Too bad

Very cool Chuma. I haven't been to Utsunomiya, or even Tochigi myself yet. Do you have any memories of it?

Came in today. Did some sanding and polishing:
