    Haha, true. It always needs to be "just a little bit" lower.

    i had time to roll just the front ones..busy weeks FTL

    But it turned out pretty good..




    oh, and i didn't heat up the paint, cause it had cracks, rust and so on. I now have an excuse for repainting the whole car. lol

    Lol, yeah. It's the first time i had a welder in my hands
    and i didn't have any professional tools for accurate cutting or drilling too.

    I think i'm gonna write a DIY on how to make it

    Hohoho, 8.5j et12 with 225/40 fits with no problems now. That means i have the space i needed gonna put 215/40 on and a small (~10mm) spacer, to make it as flush as possible.

    And here we go

    Not finished with the fitment yet, but the fenders are done

    oh, and a little sound clip..it's nowhere near ideal sound which i'm looking for, but it's still like a symphony after beeing used to M40b18 lawn mower..

    Crap, forgot to update this.

    First test fit of them

    8.5j et12 front. 225/40
    10j et20 rear. 235/45







    Swapped the tires to

    225/40 on 10j



    215/40 on 8,5j


    Test fitted them







    Originals..








    I'm pretty happy with the fitment. Now i need to slam the rear and drop the front a bit more with camber plates..

    I'm digging this thing... awesome job on the fenders... some solid black kidney grille's would really set off the front end. Keep up with the progress!

    you man i really like your car and moding style but ive been hears you rip off/ scam people for large some of money.... i gota say thats pretty damn low,theres other ways to get money to fund projects and car builds. im not saying you've scammed me but you have scammed people i know. please do the right thing and come through with those deals or refund there money.
    ive dealt with honest people from Europe for parts luckily for me they didnt take the money and run(as i can see how that'd be easy to do)

    Jacques Cousteau could never get this low
