As does the notching and tubbing!
Hold kæft mann,,,,meget lækker vogn
Not quite finished.but getting there
perfect stance there fella! that purple or brown? or browny purple?
Its brown.. But odd brown.. its a type 3 colour.. Nutria.. But looks milky in the sun but dark Brown in normal light, but the camera won't pick up its colour properly and makes it look a bit strange
what suspension set you do you have on it? sits perfect, also tyre sizes if you have them? cheers mate
I'll have a look at the tyre sizes again..i spent ages searching for the right size.. Think the fronts are 165's and backs are 175's but will look at the profile..
The front is lowered standard width beam and drop spindles..rear is staggered spring plates turned two outer splines up and one inner down..the drop on the plates were 3inches.. I want adjustable at done point.. But one its loaded up it should sit a little Lower
The front tyre is a 175\50\14 and the rear is 185\60\14
Digging holes in the gravel is cheating.
haa @zed you got me, next up, a picture in some tall grass
I can do that.
Here's mine just bought some dropped spindles so I can get lower at the front
Here's the latest incarnation of my Lola!
French Slammer UK narrowed front beam with French Slammer UK Dropped Spindles (from Graham @ Midland prototype),
Transporterhaus adjustable rear spring plates,
Small rear notches for A-arm and driveshaft,
KYB Gas-adjusts front and rear
185/70x14 Rear tyres (going back up to 185R14C soon to help with the gearing on long journeys)
165/55x14 Front Tyres
Cannot recommend this setup enough, rides better than it did with the adjustable standard beam. Have had the beam side plates hit the floor on a couple of occasions but only when pulling off the road to let oncoming traffic past on our bumpy narrow country roads.
I don't get the lowering/slammed thing... Why?Is it just looks or does it improve handling?
I just like the look...then it becomes an addiction
Too true, even my 130 mile a day daily is on coilovers!
I much prefer the look of a lowered Bay but I also can appreciate why people like them standard as well. If we all liked the same stuff it would be a pretty boring wouldn't it?
