The Sanderson header topic lead me here, I met norcalace a few years ago and bought the stock front spendels from him, still have them, never saw the car in person, nice car though, get those bugs fixed and enjoy your awesome ride.

It was a test fit. The lug nuts are shank type that go inside the wheel. All is good.

When my dad drove it home I asked him the same thing. With my Camaro I could tell a difference right away. He said he really didn't pay attention but will next time.

Nice car! Anyone would be proud to have that in their garage.
Question. I'm assuming the rear tires are 235/60/15. Any close spots in fitment?

Yes they are 235/60/15's. Wheels are 15x8's with 4.5" bs. The fit is tight but no rubbing at all.

Nothing new performance wise to the car but he did just get the windows tinted. Turned out really nice I think!

I posted in the drag race section but figured I should update in the build thread. Finally got the car to the track and made 1 pass. It did excellent! I left a bit soft on the hit but then ran it hard out the back door. Car ripped off a 11.54 at 118.6!!! My pops was stoked. It has 11.2-11.3 in it as it sits no problem. Not too bad with those tiny 1.5" Sanderson headers!
