Plan was always to have black rims and I scored these with rubber for $300 so it's no loss either way really.

Hopefully get suspension in this weekend, and lined up some clear side indicators (fuck I hate orange)

Thought about that. But the hole for the Micra one is pretty big (compared to my s14) and has a 3 way clip.
Either way I'm getting clear Micra ones (round nipple like fkn things) for no cost (maybe a beer or two) so its a bit redundant.

FUCK

Rounded one of the 17mm nuts on the bottom of the standard strut. Really need a rattle gun about now.
One corner done in about 10mins, knew it was going too easy. Heading off to the shops for a bit, I'll come back and do the rears then set to work on this drivers side one that's giving me grief.

No that's next to do. It sits crooked ATM. Marginal but noticeable to me.

This is the fkn nut that I rooted. Tighter than a nuns nasty.

I'd upload pics of the car finished but frankly, my photoshopped pics look better. It's a HUGE improvement but doesn't really translate to a photo.
Unfortunately it doesn't sit quite as low as the photoshop but then again, I'd probably need to roll the guards if it sat that low. Image

I like the new height. You didn't go too far.

Looks good ! How quick is it?
I just don't know if people like me. I know when they don't like me 'cause they'll say things like, 'Yeah, that's him, officer.'

No idea, I haven't driven it yet hahaha
One quick drive around the block when I got it home is all. I've driven ant's and thats it. They're not fast but you feel like you're in a go kart.
Once it's rego'ed I'll look at a whiteline panhard rod/rear sway bar upgrade.

Just went for another spin around the block. Feels alright. Lack of power steering just adds to the go kart feeling. It's twitchy.
Just put the steelies back on so I can tidy up the 15's when I get a chance. I'd already forgotten how far in the standard rims sit in the guards. Image

Couldn't resist, curiosity got the better of me.
Getting tyres pulled off this week and painting up the rims in gloss black. But I just threw a quick splash of paint on one rim to see.

I was a fan of the silver. I will wait until the finished product, but the silver was a great offset. to the blue.
