I see you have no caps either, I have two sets of the damn things but never put them on, just been too lazy to cut the threaded shaft end on the front axles lol. Look forward to more pics.
    Thanks! The color is "Medium Blue Green Metallic". Thrilling name, I know haha. The lugs were something I thought I'd try out. As I mentioned in the other thread, the finish is crap and I'll be doing something different in the spring. As for the caps, mine didn't come with any. However I did do some quick searching and it looks like Rota makes a cap that should fit the axle stubs, but $60ish is too much for me to find out right now haha.

    So much wagon love there, I need to get a picture with those two, before you tear down the green one. At least a picture of the two white ones together, going to have to get that one before you make yours too extreme haha.

    They are made by Drag, I forget the model now and I think they have been discontinued but they are 5Zigen replicas. Travis had them for snow tires on his old miata, I never planned on running them for long since I prefer dark rims but these really have grown on me. Thinking about tossing some r comps on them for auto crossing and track days.

    You guys are making me want to dump the SL for a wagon. All the parts from the SL swapped over would be pretty badass. Can never find them here though.
    It's not my fault, blame the radiation.

    That teal always looked so hot! Looks amazing with the black wheels. Good looking car Craig. Definitely in for more pics of that beast. Enough with the damn teasers.

    Loving the wheels
    not loving the wheel gap

    Dropping over an inch off the tire height has me now with even more wheel gap and the 15x8's 20 offset makes for more issues fitting the fronts.

    This is the second (i think) white wagon that has black around the middle and it's just fucking awesome! When I get some tint done, I might have to give that "dip you car" stuff a try and do it.

    Yup, I am running 15x7's with 205/50's. They are wide 205's though (Kuhmo Ecsta XS's).

    That's what I would do with a white wagon, paint the roof and mirrors black so everything above the window line is black and white below

    I gave very serious consideration to doing a "white hot" style of paint to my wagon but I always wind up deciding against it. I wonder how much more heat it would bring to the car and against the headliner (mine is like perfect) and I like the mirrors being white. I'd like to see it but who knows, maybe that attitude will change sometime, be easy enough to just gloss black the roof and mirrors.

    My headliner WAS perfect. Unfortunately I developed a leak somewhere and the headliner has slowly started sagging at the drivers rear corner and forward. I suspect the leak is around the hatch - there are some seams at the top of the frame and the seam seal is long gone (along with most of the factory chassis coating). She is still solid and my intention was to take the hatch off and refinish/reseal the area. Can anyone comment on leaky wagons?
