Appreciated! My friend who is a professional photographer took some shots yesterday. I'm excited to get them from her in a few days.

Also, with spring break coming up, I'm hoping to finish up my headliner!

Wow that hounds tooth looks badass, I am jealous.

You should colour match the lip. it will make your car look more well rounded and proportioned.

Ordered KWv2 coilovers and GC rear control arms today! I'm going to hold off on getting the lip until I figure out my final right height on the coils.

Thanks. Coilovers and control arms are at the shop with the car. If they have time tomorrow, they're putting them on. At the latest, it'll be done by the end of the week. So excited for moar lowz.

I installed everything with one of the mechanics today. It's up on the rack right now. Alignment and camber dialing happens tomorrow morning. Teaser shot.

I've already rolled them. I'm just going to go at the with a grinder soon, but I don't know how to seal them back up afterwards.

Plus, I still haven't adjusted the new control arms yet.

They just took the roller back to mine once they cut them and rolled the sharp edge back towards the fender. May work for you depending on how much you need to cut.

I'd be cutting off all I could. I have access to a full shop and roller whenever I need it, though, so I might shave them this summer. What did they use when they cut yours?

I can't be completely sure as I was asleep in the waiting room but I believe a grinder.

Rad. I have one of those. haha. Time for more research. I'll be doing it myself, so until then, it's ridiculous amounts of negative camber.

Next time I talk to the owner ill ask him exactly how they do it. Hope you get a hook up on tires! Haha mine was at -3.9 for a while before I realized how much it was chewing the **** out of the rears. Went and got the fender work done that day. Hehe

I'll probably just go to -3 and sit there. My rub was almost gone at 2.5, but that was before the drop. haha.
