Re: DAUSTIN's Build Thread

I know, I know. I had been wanting to and then deciding not to because it wasn't really worth mentioning. I guess now was a better time than ever, I just need to really get on getting some good pictures of the car to post.

It still needs plenty of work. I've still probably got a few good scrubbing sessions ahead of me as well as I need to do this seat belt buckle swap thing to get rid of the airbag light that is being thrown now. Turns out the seat belt buckle actually has the impact sensor for the side air bags and because I don't have those on my car, it's throwing a weird response signal and tripping the light. Hopefully this weekend will have my resolution.

I absolutely agree. I don't know if it's the fact that I like them so much or if it's actually true, but the Speed6 wheels ride the smoothest of anything I have had on the car and give the best ride. Might just be me though.
