V40's installed with Hotckis sway bar and springs

Over the weekend I installed a Hotchkis front sway bar and 2" drop springs. The wheels are Vintage Wheel Works V40's, 17x8's up front and 17x9.5's in the rear.
Here are some pics.

Re: V40's installed with Hotckis sway bar and springs

Looks awesome...but then again I'm kinda partial.

Are you happy with those center caps or are they just there to fill the holes?
If you're looking for something different,they do make flat caps that will give you more of a race-look if that's what you're after.

Thanks John, I have a set of flat caps tha I haven't tried yet. These are a tad to big in my opinion but I like the bullet style. I have seen some smaller ones available but don't know if they would fit and I certainly don't want AR's name on there. I really just wish these were a little smaller and metal.

Man, I don't blame you. I was on a job in Bethpage several years ago and started looking around for a fourth gen Z/28 while I was there. Found a beautiful 2002 copper convertible but the dealer had it parked on a ramp....everything underneath was the same color as on top and the exhaust bolts looked like stalagtites. Funny thing is I wound up buying an '01 out of Omaha while I was still on L.I. and it was clean underneath. They had a winter beater.

Car looks awesome by the way.

Looks good Mark! I had the flat caps on my V40s and they just looked funny, sorta of looked like an after thought, so I just put the stock center caps on.
