    Did a bit of lowering today and other bits and bobs.

    Hey guys, my coupe has been crying out for a little drop for some time now so got round to doin it today. All in all went well, had a few probs with my drop links so that took the most time but hey got it all done and i think it looks much better. See what you think.

    here it is as it was.


    Started with the back first as knew this would be nice and easy, also while the wheels were off i gave the calipers a lick of paint and got some polish on my backbox.


    Then i started on the fronts and all was going well untill one of my drop links decided it didnt want to come undone, before i knew it , it fell off ( broke ) Great, so hopped in the car to get a new one.




    So with the new one it all went back together nice, fast and easy. Then i had the next side to do whice i wasnt looking forward to as i had just brought the last drop link and bugger me, exact same bolt gave me trouble again. As i wound it off it decided it wanted to mess the thread up a bit so i spent ages with a file, cleaning up the thread and makeing it so the bolt would go back on again, got there in the end, was prety annoyed by this point tho hence the lack of pics by this stage . Anyway all back together now and all my callipers painted which i think look great. Ive also fitted my new wing mirror covers which i love. Very happy with the look of it for now. The springs i got a bargin off ebay, 30mm gmax springs brand new in box never been fitted £40 bargin.
    Anyway here is how she sits now.

    Ive always liked the chrome mirrors some of the audis have on them which is why i thought these would look nice. Glad i took the chance on them now.

    I was thinking bout painting my calipers. Did you have to clean them? As mine have got some rust on them, would i have to get that off before painting?
