Yrsdrgn, you got very lucky, and your car looks great!

BTW, you could run some hubcentric spacers in the rear if you want a bit better look.
Thanks. Lucky? I think i might have been very lucky cuz the guy had a set of 16's and 15's lying around.

And I will try for 5mm spacers in the rear because I think that's about all I'll be needing to make it look more flush. I'll probably do that after i get my dent fixed in in the rear right fender (you can see in the pictures since all that i posted is the right side of the car haha)

Yup, 5mm's. That's what I'd try in the rear. Should look quite nice!

Find a GOOD bodyshop.

I've been looking around and found this place in my area called 19th ave auto body. I've seen some reviews of it and it's pretty decent. I'll have to check it out next month or so.
