Hey did you drop it at all? In the recent pics it looks lower unless it's just me. Really nice and clean car by the way.

Re: PaCiFiKbAllA's EM2 **Updated Info** w/ Pics! (56k ..no way!)

This update should have been posted Saturday, but I was outta town. So here it is. Just this past Friday, I met with Spoon ES2 (Vic), and he helped assist puttin' on the springs/shocks along wit his homie. Victor is a very generous dude and I thank him for letting us use his garage for some suspension mods.

He's a young cat, with an awesome knowledge of 7th gens. Anyways, thanks again bro...enjoy the pics!


BEFORE PICS:





DURING INSTALL:



















FINALLY DROPPED!











\

AND FINALLY...SNEAK PEAK...18" WORK EUROLINES W/STRETCHED TIRES!





Big props again to Victor aka Spoon ES2 for hooking me up wit the install..and big ups to his homie John for the assistance. Awesome work Victor! These springs/shox are friggin awesome!

Did you smoke the taillights yourself? Also what method did u use if you did? The spray over the already existing clear plastic or did you sand it and then do all the good stuff for a professional job?

yeah i did them myself. i used the never-done-this-before-oh-****-here-i-go method..i used Krylon Fusion black spray paint (made specially for plastic..no need for sanding,etc.)...and i did spray over directly over the tail light without prepping it. i used about 8 coats of black and 5 of clear coat. i'm thinking about wet sanding it though, re-painting, and buffing it out for that ultra glossy look.

if ur wondering, i taped off the reverse light (white part) with electrical tape..came out clean i think.

K I've got so many questions.

What's up with the grille? It really works.

How did you paint the hubcaps?

Where can I get those window visors?

Did that silver trim on the interior come stock? If not, where'd you get it? eBay?


I've got an SSM coupe as well and this is a really nice way to make SSM less boring.

Aight...i'll answer your q's in order.

The grill I decided to throw on cause there was too much SSM flowing in the front. The grill is an OEM NHBP grill off of a 01-03 coupe..you can get them on ebay for cheap.

I painted the hubs the same way I painted my tail lights. I used Krylon Fusion. Put about 8-10 coats of black and 5-6 coats of clear coat (to prevent chipping).

You can get the visors from: http://www.weathertech.com/

Just search for your make and model on top.

And finally...No, the silver trim did not come with my car..I spray painted them on...they were originally black. But after I think about it, I think I'mma go back to black soon...I didn't prep the inserts either..I just cleaned it real good, did a few coats here and there, slapped them back in, and bam! I was done.

Keep us posted about ur ride man..get some "in progress" pics posted soon.

Thanks for the link man. I already had a pdf on how to do it though...although, more info helps...gives us more ideas on the various steps you can take to smoke the tails. if u want my opinion, sell the altezzas, and revert back to stock! otherwise, let us know how they came out after u smoke them!
