then she got a w58,a 2.5inch header back pipe with a cherry bomb and a 4x30inch tip.

 

then a douchbag in a civic tried to have his way with my her.

Wow awesome build up. How many coils did you cut? Do you have pics? I planning to do the same, was it hard to cut the coils?

No solid plans for sure yet.

some x8 steering parts up front.

serialnine some shit

perhaps a 1uz.

no pics of cutting coils.

i cut 2 coils up front and 2 coils in the back. need to cut just a hair more in the front so it looks a little more even. it looks like the back is lower because of the height of the arches but it is the exact same height front and rear.

wasn't hard, took maybe an hour, with a jack, basic hand tools and and a angle grinder. i pulled the rear springs right out then cut them, front just left them in and cut them (cut 3/4 way through then a swift blow with the hammer did the rest, be careful, dangerous, not advised)

Good news is if you do get a small two axle trailer, you've already got a full set of spares and 240 kids will think its hellaflush.

they are actually trailer wheels! i was surprised to find out that someone would actually do that. and yes that will be one of the first changes when it gets to my house. Its currently in storage and it will stay there until i have moved in november. no sense in moving it then moving it again with no motor.
