Unless that's you with the cigarette, that's poor form on the shop's part. Not a fan of the seats on the roof either.

Looks like they need to clean up the edges of their cuts a little better too - great location for the switches, but the edge cut is ragged as hell. The little details matter!

Looking forward to the final result though

Lol, I put the seats there.

The edges look ragged because they have silicone on top, but all of those details would be addressed with some suede.

Gotcha - figured it might still be a test fit situation. Long as it gets cleaned up, looks like it should be awesome!

Is the tank going in the spare cavity?

I will post more pictures once the finishing touches are done.

I am extremely satisfied with the kit and the install performed by Wolfcars.

Crazy build - amazing how much work goes into bagging. What's your plan for wheels? Would look sweet on some big fat LM style wheels!

Haven't kept you guys updated.

Notched the frame.



Boxed the compressor.


Did a test fit.





Bought wheels

F 17x8 e t45
R 17x9.5 et 45



More test fitting.



Got the wheels repaired.



And played a prank on an unsuspecting JSW owner.

niiiiiiiiiiiceeeeee!!!!!!!


how much did the installation run you?

i was tossing around the idea of bags. i could get em installed for $600 which i think is more than reasonable. what's the going rate on installs?
