    Were you able to get the tires mounted without chipping the paint?

    Thanks mate!! Agreed on the Ch grill, freight is just a killer down here... It's on the list though. :)

    Thanks Jerry!! :)

    Yep, out in the mud!! We went exploring to a remote lookout while away on the weekend, I have more pics at home, the view was amazing and well worth having to spend 3 hours cleaning all the mud off. :)

    Sweet!!! :cool:

    Yes, no problem, the ceramic clear coat is very tough, tyre ship were careful although the painter assured me it would be fine.

    They look great! I love non-stock. I also agree with the Ch grill... Would look very finished with it.

    Would have looked better with black centres on silver rims.

    Enjoy though.

    James,

    Nice touch. That took balls, but it turned out super bad a$$. Good work mi amigo! I've never seen a yellow 355 look so mean.

    They turned out really nice!! Have you thought about painting those calipers yellow as well? It might accent it even more, but then again, it may be too much.

    A couple questions;
    What's the correct offset and/or backspace for the F355?
    How did you obtain the center caps? Did they offer them with the prancing horse or did you have to have them made?

    thx

    Thanks mate, throw up a photo of yours brother, would love to see it!! ;)

    Thanks!! :)
    Thanks Pete, I wanted to try something a bit different ;)
    Thanks brother!! I am very pleased with the out come. :)

    Mate, that is a very kind offer!! I would feel awkward about accepting the offer though as it is quite a large and cumbersome item to carry on. Thanks you for offering!!
    New Plymouth is about 250kms or 3 hours from Hamilton, great driving road.
    :)
    Thanks!! Yes, I thought about paint the calipers but I now feel they would be a bit much, that said I haven't crossed it off the list yet. :cool:
    I know offset was a drama and they had to be custom made, not sure of the numbers.
    Center caps are genuine Ferrari (thanks Daniel) and have a custom ring insert to hole them in place.

    Cheers mate!! :D
