Stancewise this is what I'm thinking....
225/40's on the 9.5" at the back and 225/40/18 on the fronts. Space the rears out a little
1999 Mercedes C43 AMG 4.3l V8
170,000 Miles. LOTS of service records
Chrome 18" monos from E55 - 18x8.5 and 18x9.5
Negotiated with the owner (nice guy from Dana Point, CA) and he gave me a great price on it
Here is the day I picked it up. You can just see the guy's M3 he has set up for racing. It was pretty nice
Only problem with it was the whole front end was trashed from highway miles (just cosmetically)
Cracked Fog Light
Broken side mirror and duct tape holding it on
Missing bumper insert
Stone chipped under headlights and top edge of bumper
First up was to replace the cracked foglight. OEM glass was $20. not bad. bit of a bitch to swap it out but probly only a 30 minute job once you know what to do
Next up I swapped in an avantgarde grill
I removed, sanded and re-painted the trim pieces under the headlights as they were REALLY stone chipped
I also installed clear side markers (that did not fit at ALL out of the box...had to cut the mounting piece down so they would click into place.
I finally gave in and ordered the missing insert piece for the bumper from Mercedes and painted it up and installed it (this time adding some cable ties so if it unclips...I wont lose it)
Got a tint done down at SD Tint on the weekend. Travis down there was a great help and gave a great price
New windscreen went in today. Old one was sand-blasted bad.
Removed all the handles today to paint them up. Still need to finish up the clear tomorrow night them put them back on
Once the handles are done I need to paint the front bumper to touch it up a bit
Then I will move onto lowering, then tires, then spacers
