This is right after I bagged my car for the first time. I was very limited at the time for air suspension so we built one ourselves.


These are the brackets I had (black) and switched to (silver). It helped lower the car more but I sacrificed uppward motion. GRRRRR


After the install this is the slammed height I was able to obtain.



After alot of thought I knew that with the spirits body kit I would have to be able to go higher or I would be in some trouble so I bought a whole different set up for the front and this is what I was able to obtain lowering wise, it does go higher then before too.





Front


Rear


But all this came with a price to pay....



Let's just say to keep a story short, Don't let your air line rub till it gets a hole in it do to being in a rush. Then lets say while your pulled over and trying to replace an airline don't have your friends arm between the fender and tire and have the jack fall. Holy Crap I thought his arm should have been broken but we found out Wayne (Suspended) has arms of steel. LOL I'm glad we are able to laugh about it now.

So after all this I brought my car to a shop today for an estimate and my box should be going into the body shop tomorrow if all goes well, so keep a look out on progress pictures w/ all the Fabulous and Spirits Goodies!!!

Good news is now that my car is lower in the front, I'll be able to prob lay bumper on the ground what do you think?





Plans at the shop besides the obvious is to shave the front fender signals, the rear wiper, and the front face finisher. Pandanky, I'll getting a hold of you soon!
The Mercedes mirror turn signals will be coming soon. Should look like this--->



Once this is done, I'll have to take it a little bit more easy but Next will be the whole interior....

I like those mercedes lights way more then the jdm ones since the lights are stretched out longer. I was thinking about scooping those up too. Overall I love the setup you got going so far. Keep up the work.

Im glad your friend isnt in the hospital either, that couldve been an ugly situation. And when it comes to a ride like yours, and most of the "veterans" on the forum, there is no such thing as too much credit. Keep up the sexiness. (OF THE CAR).

You and Wayne, and the rest of your crew have great taste in styling.

If it wasn't for this divorce, I would have had my 006s, and who knows what else on my xB by now.

And yes, I love TCM also.

I thought about going black or a straight silver but I didn't want to change the color plus it saved me money on the paint because I can leave the engine bay and door jams the same color.

To the addition of stuff the body shop is doing they are also shaving the nozzles on the hood and paint matching my Tein hood dampers. I need to get these powerfolding mirrors put on too!!! Those were a Bday present from the Fiance. Lets just say she heard me talk about what I want one too many times LOL!

Well, 2 days after dropping my car off they have already fitted the kit and massaged the front area (making brackets for bumper and fender and pulling both fenders for clearance.) Carl my body guy said that the sides and rear were really easy to work with so far. The side markers and rear wiper hole have been welded already. So far this is looking better than expected.
Looking Sexy

New Fender shaved and pulled



With Fabulous Hood Wing

Flushness!!! Man, that exhaust looks pathetic, Need to install the Twimble after paint

I can only fit half of my phone under the front bumper
