I missed that yours is 2WD, you are right you could likely not get the correct overall diameters close enough between 20" and 22" to work with AWD.

Well, it appears that I have made a decision on the 20/21" HRE wheels I will be installing to replace the current 20/22" ADV1 setup.

The HRE S107SC wheels will be finished in a textured black or satin black center and a gloss black lip. The center will be finalized once I know which black matches the flat black pieces on my Murcielago. Take a look at the design by visiting the link below.

As always, if there is any interest in my 20/22" ADV1 setup, feel free to send me a PM or respond below. Your Murcielago would definitely need to be RWD to accommodate these wheels.

Just a quick update on the progress of the Murcielago restoration. The vehicle is currently going back together after the complete engine-out service. This has honestly turned into a very intense project. We ended up removing the interior of the car as well to check for corrosion, leaks and to address specific upgrades that I want to make. I ended up sending out all of the interior panels to be scanned so I can install brand new carbon fiber parts. I will be adding a new subwoofer in a custom box hidden behind the passenger seat and replacing the current radio with an upgraded, more advanced system. There is a custom TPMS system in the car as well, which I will be activating / upgrading to ensure it is up to date and functioning properly. Now that the HRE wheels are coming along with the brand new Michelin 355/25/21 tires that were just released (so excited about that), I want to make sure the pressures are always monitored closely. I believe we are almost on the home stretch and should have the car back together and complete within the next 30 days (fingers crossed). Can't wait to hear what it sounds like once it comes out of hibernation with the complete titanium exhaust!

Super cool, looking forward to seeing it at Supercar Saturday or some where else in S Florida.
What head unit are you using?

Pics of progress please!
Ask and you shall receive! Look at how bad some of this wiring and installation work was prior to me purchasing the car. I can't even begin to describe how much was broken or just completely hacked. This has basically become a full rebuild. You can see the engine all cleaned up and going back in as well. I'll try and get more pictures, but I'm currently traveling.

Thanks! I will definitely start bringing it out to some local events once it's complete. I'm not 100% sure on what was decided for the head unit, as I'm leaving that up to the shop. I'll find out for you though.

looks awesome pal! can't wait to see when it's complete!
Thank you! Me too!

WOW such a crazy amount of work! I know the feeling and remember how expensive this is, great work!
For real! Thanks very much.

Regarding the carbon fiber panels and trim pieces, my buddy owns a shop in Los Angeles and is crafting everything as we speak. I can't wait to show you guys what this looks like upon completion. I'm so excited and it's getting close. We are going to crank it next week, after the titanium exhaust is fitted.

Another quick update... We fired it up today for the first time since the project has started. Sounded real strong! Everything is slowly getting put back together. Only has taken a little over 6 months, lol!

Hello Chase,

You are doing a great job on the car.

As you may remember I am also restoring my Murcilago over in the UK. I have one query I am struggling with. Did you have to replace your door window seals? They are made up form three parts 418827863, 418837977,818837530, i wanted to freshen mine but the prices are crazy. Do you know if anyone has been smart enough to find good replacements?

Regards,

John

Hi John! Thanks very much! I believe we are replacing these seals. If I'm correct, we sourced them from one of our local Lamborghini dealerships. I do believe they were outrageously priced. I can confirm this week for you.

Thanks chase, Eurospares UK is offering 18% discount at the moment but it still over £1k per door. Outrageous. I did get a quote to tool them up myself but it was aabout £5k and no interest from others to share the cost or buy cheaper. Anyway probably a lot of work and complex to make it happen.
