I've been into upgrading (and downgrading) my car for over 4 weeks now. Here are some items that I recently bought and some updated pics:

Bought a 6-row oil cooler
Image

Took off the Japanese flag hood sticker, body-colored the front & rear bumpers, bought some stickers, took-off the side body moldings, chopped a few inches from the front & rear springs and bought 2-pcs 165x60x14 tires to replace the 175x60x14s on the rear.. still not finished though :oops: :?

On a lighter note.. 'also bought some nice Japanese items for the car hehe :mrgreen:

amazing car, i like it very much :tu: What springs and shocks you used? I want to put down my lancer a172, but dont know what springs to use, can't find original -30 :(


Hey thanks!

Springs.. actually I just had it acetylene (torch) cut..

Cut spring Vs. Stock springs
Image
The remaining spring rotations gave me about 6 inches drop :wink:


The shocks.. 'just worned out stocks (since 1982).. planning to have it changed maybe by next month
:oops:

Update:
Installed Cibie baby Oscar fog lamps ..
:shock:
