You mean like this?

Guys at the shop thought it'd be funny to give it a nickname.

What do you guys think? Still too much?

only problem with that chin is you'll be removing it with the first speed bump!

He mentioned possibly bagging the car. That would allow him to raise/lower it on command.

Thanks! I had it custom made by a member on club4ag. It is made of sheet metal.

I think he might be a member on here too.

Let me know if you are interested, I can dig up his contact info.

Yup, Bag is right. That's the plan for now.

Here's today's work, second coat of primer, hand blocked, and doing the final prep work and cleaning up the minor imperfections.

Getting closer!

ANYONE HERE KNOW HOW TO HOOK UP AN AIR BAG SYSTEM? I THINK I HAVE MOST OF THE PARTS. JUST WANT TO VERIFY.

Thanks! :)

How many inches can you drop it until the lip touches? If you cant get it low enough for a cool cruzing height or even a slammed parking height it might be a bit much. But none the lest I love it!!! Keep us up on the air system, I think I am going that route on my Crown.

Maybe 2 to 3 inches. Unfortunately, I think this will pretty much my ride height. But I can drop a few inches when parked.

Considering running thicker tires instead of the low profiles to fill up the wheel gap.

YAY OR NEY?

yup. He said he's beenbusy lately.

We looked at thishttp://portland.craigslist.org/mlt/cto/1558302666.html for my own.

BUt the person trying to sell it BS'ed about it being able to make it to Seattle.

Mind you its a 3 1/2hour drive from where the car is, first Eddie found out that it had burnt valves, needs a new brake master cylinder. The engine spewed oil all over the ground after it warmed up and for sure would probably not make it out a block of where it was and not to Seattle where the guy said it will make it.

Man sorry to hear that it didn't work out. My gf is currently down in OR, sucky drive.

I really don't see as many Mx32s around as much as I'd like. Even for parts.

You guys planning to go down there with a trailer or just going to look for another one?

As for the air bags, do you know enough about it to install them? (assuming that Eddie is busy as in "not available")
