    Hahaha, I too was really worried when I read the title, came flying into the thread. Then read the Overhaulin style car mod.

    They could at least done the whole job and done springs and cambers too !! :Grin:

    I thought this also... but bearing in mind they had to steal my spare key,, drive to my work only to find out the battery in my spare key was dead,, decent amount of time driving around trying to get the right size battery ( which proved to be quite a pain ) ,, then get the tyres on the wheels and balance,, swap the wheels over (which again was an absolute pig of a job,, you would have thought the wheels had been welded on lol ) then get the car back to my work and back in the same parking space...

    considering I can only manage a 4 hour shift they didn't do too badly lol :Grin:

    I like the fact that they went through all that trouble to do that, the thought always counts more than the result. :Drinks:

    Car is looking good with that darker contrast to the light blue colour.
