    Yeah, it's a blessing and a curse. Right now I am re-doing the body panels and gaps on my fiance's 68 Camaro. I am like a freak with the dial calipers making sure every single panel is lined up perfectly with the same gap. It's the meticulous work I really enjoy and fine attention to detail.

    I need the details to be perfect, too. Horacio has all carbon perfectly matched for every Paganini-and it pays off.

    UPDATE: Spoke with current owner...he is sending it to his shop up there for a once over. Looks like it'll be here by the end of the month given transport schedules. I've decided to go OG on the wheels and sourcing some AMG Monoblock Aero IIs as a second set...staying with 18's just because I think any bigger would just not look right.

    Just trying to source them now...we might need to build our own hoops if we find the centers just to get the 10" rears. The widest I've seen are 9" or 9.5". Or we might just work backwards and decide on a rear lip width (3-4") and fabricate from there to get a flush and deep dish look.

    Besides that I'll get them to mirror polish the lips but leave the centers as is...

    Personally in my opinion best rim for w124 w202, and get central caps with chrome sign!

    Update: I pictured the single piece AMG's above but I meant the 3 piece AMG OZ racing wheels (like below). Hard to find in the US for some reason...I'm in the middle of talks with a UK source to get them shipped to me...even though they are 17". They just look proper for the car...still deciding if we go color match centers with mirror polish lips...definitely mirror polish lips.
