So I had my poly LCA bushes and lowering kit fitted over the weekend. :D Also replaced the standard lip with a VR6 one (shot Razor :thumleft: ) Had the wheels balanced and alignment done this morning as well. Had to get two 2nd hand tyres for the front in the meantime until I have enough for a new set :bounce:

Front in only, face down a$$ up 8)

All level :)

Just a small update, decided to laminex the front indicators :mrgreen: I bought a light tint for the rear lights but now I'm not so sure since I'm going with the orange look all around :scratch:
