    I have not measured them but yeah I think they are 16 inch, but could be 15s. The rims are not the big issue. Its the tires aspect ratio is too sort for vintage Porsches so they don't fill the wheel wells up like they should and some of the bottom detail hangs down too far. Makes the kit a little weird. It looks nice painted up silver, but FWIW most all the suspension parts are black on these cars, and on some cars the cross members were aluminum some where steel. Trans mount sway bars spring plates, and frt control arms are always black. Most likely the rear drop arms would be steel and black. Could be aluminum, they switched around in these 1980s years. Not to be picky or anything. It's fine the way it is.

    Yup, I am not bitter about it. doodoo happens. Moving on now. I have a wonderful girl friend (not the reason for the divorce she came along after the drama) and I my other stuff is mostly intact. It was a learning experience for sure, but I am feeling better than ever. I am not even mad she is gone, but why she had to distroy everything. Just no reason for that.

    I guess I need to get a new camera now too,

    Starting over with a blank sheet of paper.
    Well I know I havn't been around in while. I am getting to the end of my divorce.

    My X went on a distruction rampage and cleaned out my entire built model collect, every last one... along with small appliances all my clothing etc. I have been on an 8 month nightmare that is nearing the end.

    But anyway I am thinking about getting something back on the bench soon.

    Hobby Lobby has a limited line up of most likely "A" stock. They may or may not ever carry them.

    wow, that turned out nice, I was thinking about picking up one of those but wasn't sure if it was worth it or not.

    I could never quite figure out why the V8 super cars run so much neg camber, much have something to do with the weight of the front end. And track Porsches will run a bit more than other cars. The school of thought has changed on how much... and tires are always getting better so you dont use as much camber as you once did say 10 15 20 years ago where that was the hot setup.

    In any event nice job on the model.
