    Yes, it's got to come lower if only to get rid of the negative camber front and back.

    Can't understand why it's so high.

    It looks great though, Brian wouldn't recognise it.

    depends on what you want to spend really? Are you keeping it?

    Sadly, no.... so ideally not a fortune

    How come? I would have left it without the arch extensions in that case then you might not have the issue.

    I guess it's about what you think will do? Gaz at about £1200?

    Cheapest and most popular for resale would be BC extreme low. Arched cars are really popular on facebook and look at their best when slammed.

    Originally the car was to be kept, however, during the 3 years that it took to get to this point I split with my ex and therefore the car needs to be sold :(

    I am also travelling longterm now, so the car is wasted, although I did try to make her an offer, we could not come to terms for me to keep the car.

    Thats also why the decision to go for wide arches was made.... I wanted them

    Im not a huge fan of extreme and slammed....

    Hi Graham, perhaps try to sell it 'as is' and let the new owner sort the suspension to his preference? Fit some 'cut-down' springs and explain in the advert.

    Basically you have restored a car for someone else anyway and done the hard work.

    Really sorry to hear you've got to sell the car after all your hard work and effort :( I would get my Anger grinder out and ask her which half she wants front or back then sell your half for spares :devil:

    Derrick :(

    Hahaa! Anger Grinder..... I like that!

    Yeah, not the best end to this cars life with me, but now that I will more than likely be living in France it means that I can get LHD one at half the price :D

    Rob, nice idea, Im just not sure that someone would appreciate it.... if it costs £500 to get it right, I would prefer to do that and sell it like that
