Plans for a little bit of lowering or do you want to keep it practical for loading?

Howzit Paul,

I would be happy with 2-3 inches front and rear, visually but that will impair the practical side.

So it needs to stay like this.

The other thing is that it just adds costs and hassle to the whole ownership thing.

The rears are apparently easy to drop, if you do not have a rusted one, and the fronts take 307 units to drop.

Both options cost money and hassle.....

Wheels made me smile.

Question time.

This has bugged me from day one.

Obviously a replacement unit from a breakers yard. Keep in mind, this is a 16 year old car so the old guy who had it for 15 years must have broken a corner.

Looking at the top of this light unit, drivers side only......

What is the meaning of this hole in the top.

Clearly factory, does not look like there is anything missing, like a cap.

Been away since yesterday morning 07.30 for two days training.

Thankfully they let us go early today as we sacrificed tea time and worked late yesterday.
So on the way home I stopped in at a sign shop in Medway City Estate to get some while vinyl custom cut.

Got home, unpacked, dealt with Harley who was very unimpressed and vocal about me leaving her alone with a tin opener and cans of tuna.

Then down to the garage to start offering up the white strips I had cut.

Wind and cold, late afternoon, meant I only got one side done.

Initial mock up.

Image

Keeping in mind the rear door needs some slight adjustment inward, the outcome was better than expected.

You will also notice that I put a slight rake on the line......

Little by little.
