I would say the last set suit the theme the best.

What dou you think when seeing option 5 and 6?

Option 3 is still my fav, but option 5 is pretty awesome too.

 

I printed a similar set of wheels, and most likely be putting them on a Lightning.

The last ones would be my 2nd choice. But i think they are a still a bit too modern looking. The old style are still the better choice. They just fit the lines and truck style.

Thank you, Anton! Those are 17x8's, Vision Legend 5. I adapted American Racing "Daisy" center caps. The tires are 235-65-17's up front and 275-65-17's in back. Lowered.......a bunch. Lot's of work! 😀

Nice setup! I can see that it’s lowered allot! Great work on it!

Just found this. Cool build and well thought out. Watching where this will lead to. Where did you get the cone filters?

Thanks! The cone filters are printed by @Ghost_33 I think he bought the files from cults 3D.

So I think I have decided.. I gave the C5R wheels my best effort but still when looking at them straight ahead they look bad. The Pegasus 23’s are to big, so I will go with the Nismo’s or I guess I call them Advans. 
This is almost ride height, the tires will just be touching the edge of the body so it’s gonna be perfect when done right.

Most definitely an improvement over the kit lights!

For sure right! Could probably have made the edge of the lower light a bit thicker but will look god when painted and clear glas being put on.

Made some needed adjustments to the radiator support. Starts to look good. I think I will make the lights a bit more shallow before putting it on cults.

 

What's your Cults name? I'll definitely purchase those headlight files when they're ready!
