it's about damn time for a proper
i will begin with a few old photo's i'd found on my laptop,
photo's where taken with my first DSLR ( Nikon D3100 )
car looked pretty much the same untill today but i thought i'd share them.
i'm also learning about photgraphy and stuff, already shoot a few cars
results wheren't that nice but practice makes perfect.
2 pics i took for a buddy of mine : his beast
(coolest twingo i've seen haha
it seems i was having some bad luck the last few weeks.
story starts with the constant velocity joint (thank you google translator)
every time i took a corner, my axle was making a weird noise..
took the wheel off and grease and shit was everywhere,
realized my velocity joint was busted cause the dustcover had a cut in it.
with a tax-up-to-date coming, i knew i would be fucked,
so i ordered a complete new axle cause the damn thing wasn't for sale in parts.
spent half a day replacing it, but sadly forgot to take photo's. sorry for that
The little Saxo was on the road again but a few days later i found a letter in the mailbox...
yup, my very first fucking speeding ticket..
the money i had from saving up for the bbs lips was needed to fund the ticket and the axle.. so that sucked
besides having to deal with a little bit of bad luck, i have been busy with choosing a wheel color..
i wanted to be a little different so i bought bright orange paint.
so the proces began..
i know, it looks like pink, but i swear it's bright orange
i personally **** the way the'd came out, so i will repaint them..
for now this wheel has a new function : spare tire.
i did liked the way the primer looked so wheels will most likely be white
or blue... can't decide
but suggestions are always welcome
HERE COMES THE GOOD PART
after a wrong delivery, i finally had a nice set of coilovers and shockabsorbers.
they where delivered this week but i couldn't make time to install them.
today i said fuck this shit to my homework and drove to a friend of me and began the
quest of dropping this bitch..
first time doing this shit but already learned a ton about suspension and stuff,
i now know that it isn't a good idea to try to take off a shock absorber when the lower control arm bush is still in place..
spend 1,5 hour getting my shock absorber back to the top mount cause of this little fuck-up
but hey, just learned something!
will shut up and let the pictures do the talking...
a bitch on a bridge
first strut housing out.. for a first time a real pain in the ass
pic of her ass
finally got them in.
result was this
she really needs a bath
coils are almost maxxed out, wil do this asap
didn't had time left to work on the back but will do this next weekend.
i' m happy the car is lowered, handles a thousand times better then before
but it sure is not low enough
springs probably sink in a few mm when its driven a few times.
if that and maxxing them out doesn't work, i will order shorter springs
thanks for reading and please let me now what you think
