    Looking for a picture or 2....

    Hi people, i wonder if you all could help me out...

    i was wondering if anyone has any pictures of a colour coded, non GSi MK3 wearing vauxhall 16" boots and sitting a little lower than luton intended (just a little tho).

    You see, i've got a boggo mk3 1.4ls, in red (which is faded differently on nearly every panel - will be getting sprayed!), the big problem however is that it's got the nasty black plastic bumpers.

    I want to replace them with the body coloured one's that came on the later spec LS and 'sport' models, with just the small strip of black round the top. I'm also in the process of acquiring some OE vaux 16" alloys, basically - i want to smarten it up - nothing flash like the GSi kit (i'm going for the tidy look), and nothing to expensive.

    Although, after i've got the bumpers sorted i might replace the black plastic 'spoiler' with a GSi one, and probably get some sort of grill and maybe a spot of delocking and colour coding of the door handles.
    it'll get a proper suspension setup along the way aswell.

    I realise that there's a gallery, i'm slowly making my way thru it, but if anyone's seen what i'm after anywhere on t'internet, i'd be very gratefull if you point me in the right direction.

    Cheers!

    cheers Jamie - couple of questions: what grill is that? did the wheels scrub at all?

    trying to figure out how far to lower mine - if you got away clean with a 60 drop with 15's, do you think i could drop 60 over 16's?

    there was no scrub wat so ever on mine! except the exhaust on the floor when there was a big bump!!
    i think the standard tyre's that were on my wheels had a 50 profile (correct me if im wrong cause im not sure) so if u go down to a 40 profile on 16's u shouldn't have a problem.

    the grill is just the standard v-grill that i cut about and with a little bit of filler, paint and black mesh turned out like that.

    Harvey - go back to the homepage, on the meny bar at the top, the last one says media - if you mouse over it you'll see the options.

    Thanks Jamie - nice work on the grill. What suspension did you use to lower it? just springs or was it a set?

    would appreciate any recomendations on matters of suspension, want better handling but don't want to shake my spine everytime i go over a bump.

    Cheers all. Kev
