Done a bit more work to get the old girl down a couple mm lower again,think i'm bout as low as you can go on front as i had to clear a bit of the bodywork by the anti-roll bar with the grinder as i was getting some contact,unless i can can get some shorter drop links? anyway a couple of updated pics.






What do you think guys? should i continue Project Low or leave it at this and be happy??T:

Hey guys, thanx for the good comments,what a quick response from all of you,rite will attempt to answer questions,
Mick B,because i've removed 3/4's of the front bumpstops its allowed more scope for getting it lower,still got bout 20mm left on torsions.

Maf Def, yeah i've knotched the damper top plates where the bumpstops are to allow more movement,as above i've got about bout 20mm left of bumpstops and reshaped them.

Bananavan, Dude loving those photoshop skills,how could i not continue with project low after seeing her like that!! wont be happy until she looks like that on my drive. As for bumpstops their cut down and reshaped and to be fair its only sat a couple of mm off the stops there.Next job will be to take bumpstop tubes off and chop down,then reweld back on.

Pearly Whites, Have thought bout sidebars but have just fabricated a side exit exhaust and fitted and would be in the way.

Again cheers for the comments people,Project Low WILL continue,need to all get our info together and put together a Project Low thread similiar to the Project Power!

As far as the negative cambers concerned i haven't touched it yet till i get it to it's final resting place but i think i'm gonna struggle to get it anywhere near to be honest and i quite like the neg' camber look front and rear,wont do the tyres any good i know.
As far as the rides concerned it's pretty good to be fair,got Avo adjustables to help control things,was horrendous before i did the front mods as it was fully sat on the bumpstops.
All in all if you wanna slammed ride you gotta put up with a bit of pain eh!!
Cheers for the comments guys,makes all the hard work worth it.
