Good job.

IMO function over form is important. No good if it looks awesome, but you cant drive it.

Besides, you can go too low.

I like the ride height better now.

Cheers

Thanks BenJ,
i prefer this height as its a hell of a lot more practical so now i can turn with confidence, not cringe at every turn.
I still think its sits nice as well.
Cheers

so refitted these on the weekend. Chrome looks so much better.

also removed fpv badge off bumper, retuned stereo and figured out how to play dvd's. :)
also removed stupid alloy pedals that had been cable tied on :o .
and swapped gear knob with a fiesta one looks pretty good just need to keep it on the stick, as it comes off.
Was also thinking about changing my interior carpet to black plushpile. What do you guys think?? thoughts?

Cheers
Daniel

Well finally figured out missing issue.
Decided to carry out small service replaced rotor button, dizzy cap,
leads and plugs. Found when removing plugs cylinder 2 was cracked in the
ceramic part.
Replaced them all and carried out vigorous road test.
All fixed hooray.!!
Also replaced front lower ball joint at home yesterday.
Thank god for hydraulic presses.
Took over 3 hours to get it done, but it's done.
And now for rwc tomorrow to finally get it fully into my name.
It's taken awhile but ive got there.

Cheers
Daniel
