Default How Joe spent his morning, lots of pic'* (NEW SWOOPS!!!)

Finally got a chance to mount up the new 17" chrome swoops, thanks Mark (harrydunn). Started off the pic taking with a few before shots, focusing mostly on the new tips, seen here:



Snapped a couple pics off my parents back deck of what remaining snow was on the ground.



Had to pull one the wheels out of the box to admire the shine!!


Then it was off to the tire shop to have the new chromies mounted up, and I got a chance to snap a couple after shots when I got back home, keep in mind the car isnt as clean as it could be, nor was the weather perfect for a nice scenic shoot. But here she is with the new chromies anyhow:






I think I definately need to invest in the solid chrome caps (off the '01 models, right?). What do you guys think? The swoops will have to hold me over until the wife will let me have some 18'*, lol. Thanks for looking.

Joe.
