    Yes, they have very helpful "advice", both before and after the job. There's also a wonderfully big helping of constructive criticism, whether you want it or not.

    :rolleyes3: You people want to post your DIY projects on a message board and then complain because people are offering unsolicited advice? Good God.

    That’s neither here nor there and it’s besides the point.

    I was giving some light-hearted jabs at my fellow posters. You may have taken it a bit too seriously.

          why does it look like it sits up higher than it should?
          seems there should be a smaller gap in the wheel wells.

          put some air bags on it and slam that ***** :lol:

          Looks like the front fender wells are out . The car looks really good Ox. What kind of cost do you have in the rehab?

          Try to keep the battery fully trickle charged or it will run like crap when you finally start it.

          Looks good.

          Looking good.

          For the record, that’s positive reinforcement for you. Don’t want you to think you’re getting unsolicited douchbaggery comments.

          air bags on a car aren't ghetto. They can't afford that in the ghetto.
          Ghetto would be heating up the springs to lower it :lol:
