Lowered Today

Lowered today and removed the side pinstriping

heres a before picture




Now heres with the pin striping removed and the drops. Dropped on Eibach Sportlines.When the springs set in it should drop a little more. Right now these were brand new so might take a little bit with sag and so on. Oh and I don't care what you have to say about the tail lights. Next weekend they'll be blacked out.

Re: Lowered Today

My buddy has an air tool that's similar to a cutting wheel, but with a rounded end that's like a buffer. We used that and it ran right through that pin striping easy, then one more time for the glue and a little rubbing compound and it was good to go.

Looks good. I like it. For the pinstripes, I used a heat gun, goo gone, and an old credit card.

Re: Lowered Today

looks good to me. As for the rim/tire comments, I think its just because that rim style has a lot of openness to it. What size are the tires?

Picture of tool used?

Nice drop, dude! How does it ride? Are you on stock struts? I'm sure I'll get flamed, but you have the same tails as I do, and I like em!

Re: Lowered Today

how much finger gap do you have, to be honest it looks more like prokit drop. sportline should have no gap or maybe one finger. prokit has 2 finger.

Re: Lowered Today

It looks better than before, that's for sure. But I don't understand why you bought such low profile tires when you should have / could have bought meatier tires to fill up the wheel wells more..

But that's just what I think. Nice car.
