    A few better pics of my Salvage Coupe

    Here are a few better shots of my Salvage Coupe, it probably will be about 1 month before it's all sorted out and on the road. I can't wait

    Check the second picture down, is that a red spring I can just see. I am sure it's lowered, but not how much by . I have just thought about it, the spring won't be that far down :roll:

    Cars definately been lowered you can tell by the pic of the rear wheels, looks a good 30-40mm lower. Measure the distance between the tyre and the arch and let me know, Ill measure the gap on our Turbo and see what the sifferance is. Doesnt look that badly damaged either for a salvage car, given its age.

    Cool, saves me a few quid that way lol. The side windows have also been tinted but not the rear window. I am not sure to remove the tints or not. I will try and get round to measuring the rear so I know what its' lowered by. Thanks

    The rear of ours has approx 2.5inches between the top of the tyre and bottom of the arch, and approx 3inches on the front
