Well, i want to but money is the problem, i am currently saving and plus, the only thing pushing my car into the air are the springs, not the shocks as the shocks are gas and tend to sit low on this car, all that i need is a set of lows and see how they go, if they look too high, i will go supers

Dont forget that at the moment the car looks like it has lows in there :roll:

My vote is black w/ lows. And I'd defiantly keep the wheel arch moldings you have on yours, looks nice and classy. IMO if you go too low you loose some of the practicality of the wagon.
But mine, I'm keeping with the original Silver color but going as dark as possible with the window tinting, just my preference.

Yeah, Cheers, did you vote for it up the top? as that is what im mainly needing everyone to fill out the poll.

I am keeping the chrome wheel arch moulds, have had them on there for 5 years :shock: and the silver pinstriping might be redone as soon as it comes out, i dont know yet. Should add that to it if i can

It all comes down to what you can afford. I would stay with the colour you have, It will be a LOT cheaper that way. Don't go too low, it will look good but will give you the s**t s real quick, with gutters and driveways, etc.
Lose the stripes and badges, keep the moulds, colour code everything, get some nice 17" or 18" wheels, not too blingy, and you will have a cool cruiser. 8-)

Yes I voted on the poll, Personally I'd leave the pin striping off for a while and see if the all over black works, or maybe a color that doesn't contrast so much. Makes you look again to see if you actually saw it the first time. (Yes I am a big fan of 'ghost' flame paint jobs)

Oh Yeah, lookin nice 8-) i am always open to suggestions to the best combo, so vote and tell me your combo choice

so it will go like this

COLOUR -
SHOCKS AND SPRINGS -
PINSTRIPE -
RIMS


If everyone can try to keep it that way, that would be excellent as i want this to be a shared car thread, not just choose some s**t things and make it look bad
