Check the new paint & rims on my 02 Formula

Pix of it before the paint job can be seen in my photo album. The rims are Boyd's Smoothie II's with Nitto 555r tires all the way around, the back tires are 315-35-17 Nitto 555R drag Radials. Finally got some traction.

The car is an 02, but we hydroplaned during a Thunderstorm & my wife wanted to get it painted a different color. The first 9 shots have the stock rims on it & the last 9 Have the new rims. The car runs 12.59 @ 113 NA & with a 150 shot she runs in the 11's, but I don't spray her that much. Can't afford to these days with all the projects going on at home, but if you see me @ the track & aren't running 11.5 or better don't bet me on a racr .

Click here for Album with pix of paint job.

Hope y'all like it as much as I do.

Oh yeah the new color is Mandarine Copper Metallic with a little touch of Pearl.

Actually they painter had a Ram Air hood that he would have given me for free. But this year they made 15k Ram Air's & only 901 Formula's, so I wanted to keep it different & I like the sleeper look of the Formula's.

Its a nice car as it is. I'm just into making things look as mean as possible or as cool as possible, but I guess that goes with the trade.
