that patch kit SUCKS arse..

Anyway, I borrowed a spare from a ford fusion and it works great!

Yeah, I knew about repair shops but my dad is fixing it at work. Paying 125$ to fix a 145$ wheel would have been pretty dumb :D
I thought it from another car you have. and yeah, I thought that was dumb too. anyways, good luck on the repair and be careful I heard once a rim is cracked its best to replace it because it looses its strength and I have seen rims that were just bent (and more than likely cracked) just give and basically blow up on them and cause them to crash.

Oooooh, lookin nice. Are you going to take off the round Chrome trim then? If I remember correctly it's a 1 piece construction that would need cutting off. I would love to do the same thing with slightly different tips. After seeing the Aussie VT from the magazine spread I was hooked on the idea. I think it'll look great sticking out the back!

The chrome trim comes off with I think it was five bolts, three nuts and a screw. Two of the bolts are tucked up a bit and take about 5 minutes a piece to get out. You can then pull on the diffuser and snap the rings out the back side. The rings are not attached to the exhaust at all. I couldn't get into the muffler shop this afternoon, but will try again in the morning. I will post pictures of what we did after.

Hey man post picks when you get them installed, dying to see how much room they cover. I ended tucking in my Magnaflow tips into the stock fake tips since I hate the gap that the tips left behind.

DIG! Price paid for the tips and the install if you don't mind my asking? And, do you happen to have a picture of how/where they get installed and put on? Thanks in advance!
