I put the orange wheels/tires on for looks. I now have 3D printed front/rear shock mounts (from sabulatech.com), and the black progressive front springs. Those are...

If you need a shell, wing, gearcover, etc, I've found that a seller named teambluegroove sells a complete set for something like $35 shipped. They must be reproducing the originals, which is fine by...

At last, some more pics!

You'll notice that the front shocks are black, while the rears are more of a dark gray. Both were labelled "hard anodized" (which is supposed to be black), and both were...
