I had a brain fart when I said WS6 Hatch > T/A hatch, when a Trans Am Hatch, and a WS6 Hatch are the same thing. I mean't to say a WS6|T/A Hatch > Firebird hatch, which doesn't have a spoiler?

Better?

Yeah it makes sense now lol. And firebirds do have spoilers, they are just low rise. It also depends on the car though. I usually think that wing look big and out of place on a firebird/formula body, but for some reason it works on Zex's car. Maybe its the tips or the rims...

Trans Ams, Firebirds, and Formula's all have the same body...

Yeah thats what I was referring to. Firebirds and formulas use all the same body panels while T/As have different bumpers, side skirts and hatch. just putting the hatch of a T/A on a firebird/formula and nothing else looks odd to me except for on Zexs car. Thats all I was trying to say.

Wednesday a buddy and I installed Edelbrock Performer IAS shocks with Eibach 2.5" ID coilovers for the front only and finally bolted in my UMI 3 point tubular SFC's. I was just going to weld them in but a different buddy had spare bolt-in hardware handy from his SLP SFCs so he bolted the fronts in while I worked on the coilovers. Today I had the SFC's welded in and the exhaust tips fixed so that they're tucked higher and further in (towards the front of the car). I'm really happy with it now. Rides like a real sports car with a stance to match.

Only thing left to do is paint over the welds to keep them from rusting [in this 10% humidity year-round environment] and bolt the trans tunnel cross member back in.

Moar Pikcszx when my car is clean and it's good photoshoot weather.

Here's one pic showing the stance:

Still dirty though and incorrect lighting/angle for a good picture.

Compared to the pic in your sig, zamg your wheel well looks horribly big in the before pic.
Still unsure about lowering the car any more than it already is...
