Me too :) I'm just jealous of the time you have to throw at this, while mines sat in the garage with the floor missing!

I really like the look of your car so I'll be keeping an eye on what you've got planned for it.

Right next up was to sort out the ride height as it was sitting a little too 4x4 for my liking
So I wound the hi-lo's all the way down on the front and wound the backs down a fair bit too.
This was the arch gap before and after

Ran like his for about 3 months until this happened 😂

Safe to say I then raised the back up about an inch which gave quite a nice raked stance

Glad I did really as the back end was extremely skittish and if cornering hard the rear wheels tended to lift off the floor haha

So after wrestling that one off I refitted this instead. Was a twin box maniflow. Now it's a single box stainless system

So that was the fun/ dangerous few months out of the way. Onto the next
