        Got the headlight buckets in. It's not that fun of a job.

            Alright ox, your thread inspired me to attempt the 1st bodywork job of my life. After watching hours of youtube videos.... I started this weekend. I put it my pool/fence build thread.

              Neah, it’s a small project. Not worth a whole thread.

              And referring to youtube.... I’m not talking about BillyJimBob fixing the bullet hole in his truck. All the big dogs like 3M and Meguiars have countless hours of professionally done step by step how to videos. They want someone like me to give it a shot.

                    We didn’t heat up nothing and certainly didn’t cut any coils. We just removed the coils all together. :lol:

                      A set of Eibach springs would set the stance nice. I think I paid about $260 for mine.....If he goes lower than 1" he'll also have to do a re alignment. I had mine installed by my tuner and I think he charged me $250 labor.....If he does them himself he'll also have to rent a spring compressor but it would be money well spent IMO....

                      Disagree. You thoughtfully engineered solutions where the professionals couldn’t/wouldn’t. I found it fascinating.

                          I ordered new tires online. When they get delivered, I'll take them across the street to get mounted and save $300 on their quoted prices.

                            Why didn't you just have them delivered across the street?

                            That would have been rude.
