Hello all!! As some of you may know I’ve been working and repairing the hell out of my 2001 rt10 and just yesterday finally buttoned her up. The car was in pretty rough shape and considering the way I got her, I couldn’t be more thrilled at the result! I just wanted to thank all of you who helped me along the way these past months! I’m excited to finally get to enjoy this old girl and hopefully meet some of you along the way!!
Beautiful! Great panel fit at the front. It's hard to believe it's the same car by looking at the interior.
I know man! It was a real undertaking considering my lack of experience on these cars but turned out great!! Gonna enjoy the snot outta it and maybe set my sights on a gen 5: now that I’ve checked a major box on my auto bucket list! Haha
Those wheels are CCW Classics with street grade (polished) fasteners and center caps. You don't see many of those.

The wheels didn’t actually come with center caps. Being an aviation machinist has its perks though because for the life of me I couldn’t find the OG caps anywhere. So I threw a little personal touch on em while I was at it!
Thanks man it was pretty tired when I got it but some hard work turned out awesome
Oh man, I'd be down for a set of some spun center caps for my CCWs. If you're up for another run, let me know!
Absolutely! The oring design I used wedges the cap in really good
(165+Mph) 😅 but doesn’t allow for the cap to sit fully flush to the face of the wheel. I just used two dabs of super glue and they sit flush now. Doesn’t really matter if it’s glued because the wheel comes off with the cap anyways.
The exterior shine looks great, was it rough when you got it also?
Thanks man. The exterior was actually in really good shape. But the car clearly hadn’t been waxed buffed or clay bar’d in a very long time if ever. Luckily it is a moderately low mile car and has spent most of its life in a garage from what I can gather.
