I had painted my a/c knobs the other day, they came out well, also painted the 4 white pins that i guess brace your bumper in place.
the 2 with the door off is my repairs from an accident, i just thought it looked cool with no door lol

Thats right... I have a 40 series tire on a 17" wheel and with Roush Springs I am as low as a ZN on GC's! Hehe... wonder how low I'll be when I do ground controls ;)!!!!

Edit: Car looks awesome as usual BTW.... really bright....

you'll have to take the airbag off first. if ya look behind the steering wheel you'll see 3 holes on the left side and on the right side, the middle ones on each side are holding the steering wheel in(its a torx bit, cant remember the size) unscrew those by turning the steering wheel a lil bit to get a decent angle. once its off, you can just unscrew the buttons with the same torx screw

i love the look of your car, and all your cutom sharpie tribal work in it. but i really really wish i could see it clearer!! but it looks sweet. were the A/C knobs stock colored before? or were they red? i think it might looks a little better red....for some added contrast. but if you like it, then keep it man. nice drop though.

richierich: you have 17" rims and 45 series tires and a 1" drop and its almost on the ground? im getting 17" rims this sunday, and by next month i will get the BG springs for a 1.6" drop, so how far off the ground do you think my car will be with the stock body??

this was explained dawg. smaller tires = lower car.


the caster camber may or may not raise your car a little bit, depends on how off your camber is when they fix it :)


car looks good. pics are a little blurry tho - looks like you have my rims in white :cool:

i have the chamber kit, didn't notice much a difference in height, but yeah i slam the car all the way down, my struts go through hell, but its great cornering at like 65-70mph with little drift because of the tires, definitly limits what driveways you go up, but is really cool when you 3 wheel a drivway and everyone thinks you have bags or something, yeah i definitly need to replace my struts though
