    Yay!

    Please don't install a Playstation controller to make the air-ride lean in all different directions.

    as long as you drive it slammed all the time, bags are cool, because you can rarely go lower with coilovers. just throw some wider wheels with more aggressive offsets on there (to make it flush with the fender, or poke out *just* a tad), and it'll be one of the coolest non-evos i've seen for a looooong time. sunken in wheels only look good on hot rod kustoms, and slammed vw bugs... the old ones.

    Evos don't look cool anyway. Nothing that comes "tricked-out" from the factory looks cool. It might look nice, but thats not the same as cool.

    This girl (assuming she really is one, and disregarding her man for the moment) invested somewhere between an ass-load and a shit-ton of effort into this car. That makes it cool.

    All together it took me my hubby and 2 of our friends roughly arround 20-25 hours of work the project went from friday to monday but there was a lot of stopping like i said before because of the rain. I did most of the wire running and hooking up gauges switchbox valves plumbing ect while the guys did cutting and mounting the struts and cylinders ( im not strong enough to hold them up to be mounted :hsd:) I also installed a train horn in the front bumper :rofl:

    Yeah, I know what you mean about the weight. It's hard to appreciate how much 3000 pounds is until you're lying on your stomach under the car with a foot and a half of working space, trying to hold up a 50-pound swaybar (or whatever) with one hand while tightening bolts with a non-ratcheting torque wrench in the other hand.

  10. Yeah I have to agree here what a waste of money. You could buy a helper monkey or something like that instead.

    Read the goddamn thread and it will make sense. Or maybe it won't, I dunno -- but read the goddamn thread anyway.
