    The car will wheels....

    ..back on and ready to into the booth, also some others from today.






    Also i measured the height, and its 6" off the floor at the lowest point, so 30mm drop should still be ok!

    I do like those rear splitters blended in although i'd look at smoothing the whole bumper where the black strip usually is

    It's comming along nicely

    i was thinking about that but its quite hard to fill the gap without it cracking in time, you would have to fill it with melted plastic or something.
    Im having the black strip painted blue now tho, the original black strip in the bumper is only tape, cheap vxl buggers.

    All the sanding is my hand, they use a rotary to help, but 98% is done by hand.
    autosparks - how can a bit of insulation tape be expensive?..cos thats all it was like.

    Good to see they have blended up the quater.
    Thought about coilovers? would be able to get the ideal drop worth there weight in gold with cars with kits on,
    You can set it to the best look and praticality rather than being stuck with a fixed ride height.

    Looks good though
