Where is the backup camera as with the rear window 100% consumed with the wheel/tire you have zero rear view..... I don't see it in the picture.

I also don't understand the twin stabilizers mounted so low. One high mount thru-shaft type does the same job with symmetrical response.

Front bumper welding looks like it was done as a first-project in high school shop class by someone with the shakes.

thats sema for you. everything from lambos to hummers on ginormous wheels and thin tires. ridiculously over flashy to attract attention to the vehicle. a few years ago sema actually started denying entry to show vehicles they determined werent good enough for the show (ie flashy). i know a few people who had spots in the show who were denied weeks before the show. not vehicles IN booths but non-booth spots.

It’s not a “roll of dimes” but they appear to be solid and clean welds short of destructive testing. Some of the 20’s with 40’s don’t look bad but the rubber band tires are silly.

I think the glare from the paint is making them look worse than they really are. They don't look like fantastic welds, but they look better than I've seen on some others.
