JJRiskas

Hi Guys,
Well, I finally did it, bought a Red 04 yesterday.
I've been monitoring your site for 3 months now, and decided to jump in.
I've got questions, and need sage advice.
Where is all this chrome trim I see coming from?
CARID sucks.
Has anyone put whitewalls and steel wheels on their car?

Has anyone blacked out the fenders to make it look more 50's style

Any chrome available for the front grill, except billets?

How about dash board trim?

Has anyone replaced the rubber in the running boards with diamond plate?

Any one know a good pinstriper?

Any group rallys in South Florida (Boca Raton)

I'm just getting started, and appreciate your tips

Respects,
JJRiskas

Welcome to the fray.
If you want steel wheels larger than 17 inch you'll have to have the made as far as I know. Whitewalls have been done and look good, but there again you'll have to have them made.

Go up to the UserCP and over to Your Profile then fill in what you have(including the last 5 VIN) and about where you are, because there's probably someone who can counsel you, not too far away. As always it's location, location, location. If you're in FL, or TX, you don't need towing service, there's so many members they could come over and carry it... well almost.

Often wrong...... but never in doubt.

Welcome from central Ohio.
My advice on bling is to attend the next rally or meet and greet in your area and see some things for yourself.

Welcome aboard from the ‘Sooner’ state of Oklahoma. Good choice on the color. You have joined a great group to help you enjoy your ‘R’ to the fullest. We have an international rally coming up in Branson, MO this October with over 200 SSR’s in attendance. This would be a great opportunity to get acquainted and have a good time. Hope you can make it.
