Just catches the outside lip of the fender when going over dips in the road or going over bridges that aren't smooth at high speeds. Around town driving and cruising isn't an issue.

    I thought that was a no brainer. However, I am not curious. What would happen if you didn't? I should have taken a picture of it on the fork lift! That was kinda cool.

    Too bad you don't live closer -- we'd have that all taken care of in no time.

    BUT..........







    Some issues to bring up.

    "Chrome" graphics seem to last 1 yr, 2 if you're real lucky. After that they begin to fade, even flake off, but leave the sticky paper. PITA to clean off.
    Clay Bar and waxing you have to be careful, need to do by hand, otherwise if you use a buffer it will take them off.


    "Stainless Steel" - These last longer, suppose to be 5-7 yrs, still look good on Black & NMB cars, others, not so much. Same precautions for clay bar & waxing.



    What ever theme you decide make sure it works, otherwise you're wasting money.
    ........IF i had a bird to do- a T/A id go for air brushing i know its alot more money but would look too cool...just my 2-cents..

    Came out GREAT! Looks and feels amazing

    Before ordering I had called WS6store and I spoke with Mike who is the owner to make sure it would work with the pistol grip, he was really cool and helpful and assured me he would ship the same day
    Ordered it on monday and received it wednesday!

    Out of storage and fully insured. I'm always amazed, after sitting for 3 months with no starting, a little jump from the pack and she turns over in 2 cranks.

    I almost forgot how the loud these damn doors are.

    Im no expert on wheels but the only thing I can think of is maybe its the wrong backspace. Making the tires stick out too far. My 315's don't rub at all.

    I'll have to look tomorrow to find the offsets and spacing on them. They don't rub too horribly. Enough to catch the very inside edge of the fender. I just got the Jeep bump stops, so that should hopefully prevent then amount of travel causing the rubbing. If not, we'll move on to the rolling of the fenders.

    That would be great. I don't travel down to Indiana nearly as much as I used to, however I make a couple trips to Chicago a few times a year for work. If it's nice I'll drive, it's crappy I fly.

    There's a guy that lives about 30 minutes south of me that has a 2002 MRM WS6 but he never drives it... EVER... I don't quite understand the concept of that, but to each their own. He bumped into me at a show last year and was picking out the flaws on mine, I had to kindly remind him that I was here and his car was in a barn under a cover collecting dust.

    Hate that when ppl do that shit, never bring a ride but can nitpick the hell out others. I told one to put up or shut up & , I won 2nd place in that show for modified 90's category 0ut of 15 cars.


    I had a 96 FB this color and have regretted selling it. My favorite color, I hate the orange red color. If I ever get another Trans Am it will be this color.
