A few subtle changes
« on: March 13, 2016, 08:33:05 AM »
Spent yesterday at Pro Alfa,had a really enjoyable day with the guys there and Ads,it's so gratifying having others enthuse about your plans for your own car,Chris helped me my with my choices of products and I couldn't be happier with the results.
I had a new splitter,new diffuser and a slight colour change on the wheels,as usual the quality of the work was unquestionable,watching the guys take great care with my freshly powder coated wheels was very confidence inspiring(seeing as they went on and off about 8 times),although it was getting late in the day and they had other builds that needed finishing they still adjusted the camber and height of front and rear until all 4 wheels sat perfectly,I've never seen a set of set of rims go on and off as much,I'm not sure who was more pleased with the end result when the ramp grounded for the last time,me or them!
A huge thank you to Chris and the guys for all there hard work and a car that sits pretty much close to perfecton👍

Looks great Chris.  Have you lost the smoked side stripes as well?

How much front camber do have now Chris? Looks like more on the rear from the photos.

You're either brave or eccentric, as you've got deep pockets to pay for this I'd go with the latter. ;)

Matt black Tributo stripes with a lime green border would set the wheels off nicely 😉

Now Chris - what are you doing about the colour of those Brembos? the red is clashing with the green...
