    Scanning doesn't cost anything here, you might get lucky and it'll be a close-enough match to an existing automotive paint color that is easily gotten as touch up paint.

    Agreed. There are only a couple of spots - one on the passenger air bag cover and steering wheel to touch up. It is one of those "I'll get to it later" projects.

    Planned on changing out the wheels and tires so I did a test with the line loc on the LX sports. Handled it fine in first. I just did not rev it up enough and dump it while in second on my first attempt....

    Video of that and some driving:



    And then I changed out the wheels....

    Out with the old:



    and in with the new:

    Nice!
    I always do a 2nd gear burn at the track with wet tires.
    2nd gear dry can be rough on the clutch.

    Yeah. Only reason I tried 2nd was because of hearing people use it at the track...more wheel speed without reving as high during burnout or something.

    I'll stick with first....

    Thanks I like them a bunch too. New old for the season.....I swap between those and the LX Sport wheels when I feel like doing so.
