Nice m8, pretty tidy for a starting point
1.id take the strips off the side, color code and good detail for now, not sure about lowering it unless u plan not to put stuff in the back (if not lower away) lolol
2.prob a nice set of rims..
Also check my ride,sitting on HSV R8 19's
" And on the Seventh day ,GOD created Commodores!!!! "
as you can see, its already missing one of the door strips, im going to put it back on, because!, the paint underneath looks like it has a join, theres a run on the shape in the skin, so im concerned that if i remove the rest that theyll have that drip on all n look crap.
and iv literally just put the fresh steelies back on, coz the chrome was peeling off the other rims i had on there and they looked soooo bad.... it looks 100x better now. and its not often we carry big loads in the back, just my PA system. and thats not very often.
please please please dont get FE2 springs in the front and SSSL rears, it looks super gay. SSL fronts and SSSL rears is the stuff dreams are made of
well right now, it looks ghey coz the fronts mega high and the rear must have sagged, coz its nearly tuckin tire now. so FE2 will at least bring the front down to a respectable level, and the spings im lookin for the rear will be just tucking rear tire.
i agree with you that the ass drag look is horrible. theres always the grinder to take a coil :P
and for $25 a spring from holden at staff price, who would complain?
SSSL's will tuck a fair bit of tyre haha.
and SSL's itll sit just about flush with the tyre on the front.
i spoke to kings about where i wanted it to sit, and they suggested the part number, it might have only been ssl i wrote it down at work, but i said to them, i want to tuck just the top of the tire, and they said, WOW (lol) thats low, i said really?? lol..... but still told me the appropriate part number to get it to my desired height. so repco have them in stock in coffs and if i get enough tax ill be getting her a set.
im just trying to go off my experiences and i had 20s lol, but with SSL's in the rear i was tucking about 0.5cm of tyre. with SSSL's i would have just been tucking rim lol.
i used to work at the repco store im talkin about and dealt with people who wanted to lower their cars quite regularly, so also dealt with king springs quite regularly, when asked about lowering a car, i go, how low? lol.
my answer is, as low as it can go
agreed, lots and lots of low
small update. scored a VT SS front lip for nothing was a touch short, so its streeeetched on. lol. basically, screwed it on at either end, and then dragged it up over the stock lip until it clicked into the groove. so, for that, its ever so slightly lop sided, but im talkin like 2-3mm difference.
