How do you all manage to get your cars so low? Been racking my brains for ages but can't get it anywhere near as low as yours.

Just want to get rid of that ghastly gap between tyres and arches.

lower the arches on the body or hi-los and lower the whole car, then think about cutting front wings and tubbing rear arches

I've got hi-lows all round so I think doing the arches is next bet. I've just picked up some 13"s so will offer them up as I need to cut the arches to suit.

Looks brilliant man, sits really nice! I know your pain, I had the same problem back when I used to run sportspacks. I ended up cutting most of the arch away underneath up to the lip to try and give the tyre somewhere to go. In the end I put them in the bin when i switched to the Mexico arches. I still kick myself for chucking them away as I later found out they were actual genuine plastic sportspack arches...

Really like your car! lots of effort and thought gone in to it!

 

A wee bit off topic, but are this mirrors any good? i.e can you actually see out of them?

Thanks!  :proud: ... They're absolutely rubbish haha. I never use them though really as I just tend to look over my shoulder instead.
