Time for some update, I have been lazy lately.

Image
So here it is with the 80/60 lowering kit. FK springs and TA Technics shock absorbers.

Image
Bought clear blinkers and put the parking light bulbs in them.

Then the disaster happened. While I was going to store I heard loud banging coming from back of car car. I tough muffler or absorber is loose but when i got to parking lot I noticed that the roof rack is loose and two of the legs are bended :mad After that i have been riding without the roofrack.
Image
Thats how it has been for couple of weeks now. I'm going to weld the roof rack to the roof next weekend so updates coming.

Nicely done, I love these cars. They used to be so common here in Ireland.
