Here's some pics in daylight of the rear spacers. Looks like the rears are on hold till tomorrow.

Quick question for everyone.
Agent 47 mirrors on a black car painted or unpainted? (Dam you George!)

Nice pix Leo.... lookin' good.

Regarding the mirrors.... not a big fan personnally (NO OFFENSE to anyone) but if you do them- learn from your spoiler- paint the mirrors for sure.

Yeah I'd paint them. .... Sorry George...

There is a seam running vertically down the base on the door and part of the stand or whatever it is that supports the actual mirror... That, for me, should be sanded down and finished...

Now for your car I'd have 'em painted with a satin finish. I think it would work.

Forgot to add the link.

I wasn't either untill I saw them on George's car. I'm wondering if it was just the "PJ effect" that made me like them.

Haven't done this in a while....
New products I found while browsing the net...

I really think it's up to your own preference. Here's a pic of a car at sema with the mirrors.



Well, I had the Watts link recall done today at saleen's facility in Irvine. Jared from parts/speedlab took my car in and gave me the grand tour of the place.
Got to see lots of neat stuff in research and development. Got to see the shaker/supercharger, It's still slated for a mid-year release.
I was done and out of there within the hour. Here's a few pics of the completed recall...




Sorry my car is not clean underneath

Hmmm... Satin that's sounds interesting. I'd have to see that first.

No comment on my whee spacers?

I'll be in town the next two weekends. I'll probably bring it my B-day weekend. That way I'll have the tires on by then.


Maybe Jed or Ray can do a photoshoot.

Thanks for the pics George. After seeing that I think I'll stay unpainted if and when I do get them. Worst case scenario I run around with them unpainted for a while.

So what did they add or change to your watts link? Was it the black bar?

Edit: just noticed your avatar is that a new personalized plate you ordered? Speaking of which my dam plate still isn't ready. Darn Convicts, WORK FASTER!

They added that black bar/brace and changed some hardware

Nah man, I stopped looking at your car in general...... usually I'm using my laptop computer and when I look at your car, the computer starts to raise off of my lap.... Really screws up my viewing angle.

Man if there was one thing I didn't need to know about.

Hey George, can you feel a different with the additions to the watts link ?

You are right it's horizontal... This pic is a little clearer.


I didn't like them when they came out and I pretty much dislike anything on the Agent47 car, but on yours they are phenominal.

Leo.... I gotta see the spacers in person.

The rearend seems more planted when going around corners. Other than that nope no difference.

I wish I could see the spacers in person. I can't tell all that much from the pics. I like the idea though.

As for the mirrors, I say go painted with your car. I just think that would go better with a black car.

Yeah it's real hard to photograph. In person though you can really see the difference. The tires don't look sunken into the wheel wells like before. You can't even see the spacer unless your looking into the wheel well and even then it doesn't look bad or anything. I'm sure the Socal guys will voice their opinions when they see it person.
