    Welcome JdmTom, there are quite and few RLs on here and I'm sure you will be able to find all sorts of info on here. I think the car looks great, I'd bring it down just a bit in the rear, other than that I think it looks really good. You're off to a great start.

    not quite sure why youd put junction produce center caps on those wheels...

    Thanks for the feedback, I plan to lower the rear next weweekend

    As for the centre caps
    - I don't want to run Mercedes badges
    - Plain centre caps make them look like eBay replicas
     
  6. Love to see another RL doing it.. Don't give up on her

    Some camber in the rear would be dope.

    So finally got her back from the sprayshop after 4 weeks
    Pretty pleased with the outcome considering the car was absolutely covered in dents and scratches before
    Only problem now is the wheels look super dull, thinking of getting the alphards chromed or maybe something polished

    Even after getting the car sprayed the rims still look good imho, i think if you chrome them, it wont look good

    Why's that mate?
    My reasoning is the car has 2 colours (black and chrome) and the silver wheels dont match

    i think chrome wheels would over power the look. maybe it's the pictures, but looks good as is.
