space the rears out dude ;)

other than that, I <3 Teddies! :D:lol:

 

Cheers dude!

 

I've had to have some slightly stretched tyres on the front due to catching the inner arches. Unfortunately that has left me pretty much skint :( The rear arches will need rolling before I can space the wheels. They already catch the arch occasionally.

 

Glad you like the Teddies, they're definitely a marmite thing. People either love them or hate them, no in between. Planning a full wheel refurb soon with something rather special for them ;)

I have indeed. The front can still go lower but then i'd be back with the problem of catching the arch. I also scrape on every speed hump and pot hole. However, I will be looking at going even lower soon. Static of course.

Does anyone know if the big bumper is required to fit a VR6 splitter or if it can be fitted to the front valance under the small bumper?

Update time!!

 

Started on the wheels this weekend! The lips were destroyed so it's taking quite a while. One down, three to go!

 

Before just to give you an idea:

After:

The eyes are proper button eyes where the black bit moves.

 

Hopefully get the other 3 done over the next two weeks!

 

Opinions?

Well, hoped at doing another tomorrow but a 12 hour shift means it won't be happening.

 

Just took this one to show a few friends at a local thing and everyone loved it! Well chuffed!

Lol at the teddy's, fair play. As for the VR6 splitter... please dont, they fit awful and require chopping which finally concludes in them looking genuinely retarded.

 

I reckon some beige early spec interior would look awesome in this, would compliment the colour. And as for tyres, 185/55's would cut it!

Right, one wheel is complete so thought i'd get it on and see how it looks!

Roll on the next 3 days time off so I can get these finished!

 

Just out of curiosity, is there any way to change the thread title at all?

 

Thanks!

Now looking for ways of going lower. Some may have seen this in my other thread but here is the issue...

Subframe is as close to the floor as I dare go so trying to find a way around this.
