Do you have a lot of rubbing?! I tried going all the way and ended up having rubber thrown into my face and all over the place.

You need to have stretched tyres and also a bit of camber on those wheels, in order not to rub...

that might be a problem, you should run I think 40 profile.. either 215/40 or 205/40 (I ran 205/40 on 8.5 with ET15 last year.. and that was pretty neat)

With /45, it's a "failed stretch", cause the tyre walls make a round stretch... It's almost the same that rolling with no stretch.

Just read this entire thread from page 1, and I must say...... sub'd. I can't wait to see what else you do.

Wow, been through the thread from page 1 and I gotta say you inspired me to work on my car.
Amazing attention to details and it shows !

I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on a set of Rokkor coils after seeing this.

Sorry for the lack of updates everyone! I've been putting my car on hold due to other places my money has had to go in my life. Finally got some new items to install on my car. Just got some LED lights to put in my door handles. Really looking forward to it! Gonna wire it all in, through the factory harness. I will provide lots of detail and pics as usual

DIY to come.

The lights are from Oznium. 4 chip Surface Mounted LED's 100% waterproof housing, prewired with resistors to run on 12v DC.








Thanks for all the nice comments by the way! I appreciate it Wanted let you guy know you can follow my instagram @LoveBeingUseless if you want to know what I'm doing and not able to spend all my money on my car

I stumbled upon this thread today, and I'm amazed by how you got this car looking! I love how low it sits and I really like the wheels!
