Update time.

so as its school holidays over here I've been doing 45 hour weeks plus weekend work at my second job. so not much has been done lately. after upgrading my amplifier wiring in my 850 i got bored on my day off. so i decided to test fit my arch flares.

here's a photo

http://sphotos-b.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-a ... 1206_o.jpg

i don't think it'll be moving along anytime soon. spacers are in the works. ten mm all round.

Cheers mark. yea i reckon they are just so much better than the dull coloured phase 3 wheels. My next step is to get the last front wheel off. then install the secondary electric fan. then find some one inch lowering blocks and some spring compressor's so i can fit my coilover rear's

So. have done a little bit lately.
put some interior back together
cleaned up some wiring
changed drivers window mechanism so it actually works now
but my main change is installing negative height adjustment.
note
no lowering blocks used. yet.
