    Thanks Bez, is there a members motors section, I can't see one?

    Only asking as a build thread might be stretching it a bit, more just subtle tweeks with wheels etc:)

    Got some 19" speedlines to fit once I decide on a new colour for them and sort the ride height, forgive me I've asked a typical noob question in the suspension section.

    Test fit

    Cheers!!
    Not really, A nice subtle drop and wheels and I'll be happy. Its already got leather so quite happy with that, might carbon wrap the grill and plasti-dip the chrome but that'll be next year. Tbh I don't really want to change it too much, I'd rather just enjoy having a comfortable car for the moment.

    I considered doing them gold, I always wanted to change the colour, light grey was always a possibility too.

    Did you split them to paint them? Was it not a nightmare rubbing down the textured finish?

    Still not really decided on the colour yet. I had gold paint in the garage so they'll be done in that for the moment. I won't be fitting until I can get the car lowered so plenty of time to decide then I'll probably get them powdercoated.
    Yeah I split them, left the tyres on tho, just makes things easier with no masking etc. The textures not actually that bad, 3 coats of primer and some wet and dry gets them smooth, not as bad as I was expecting!!

    Cheers mate. I know, been down that road before but not going silly on this car, just want a decent looking comfy cruiser now:)
