PostSubject: Dunk's (aka EM1_Yo) Coupe build thread - officials    Sat 19 Mar 2011, 10:34 pm

Ok so I've posted some bits an bobs here and there but thought I'd start a proper thread.

Have owned the car for 6 months now, this is where it started.



Got some ACT split rims for an absolute bargain (which helped as some dick left a nice rock in the road that trashed 1 of the BBS's)



bent BBS



Trial fit of the wheels with the 215/45/16's the were wearin



Pic from the Feb 7th meet now wearin 195/40/16's. Much better



So brings us upto date ish. Got hold of Powelly's flaps at the last meet !! Due to how low the koop sits they wouldn't actually go on as they were alredy on the floor Laughing So despite popular belief I managed to trim about an inch off Powelly's flaps (most people didn't think he'd got a spare inch)



They still catch the floor but I've decided to let the floor do the rest of the moulding into shape Very Happy So while I was fitting the flaps I decided as the worst of winter has now passed I'd have a good clean up of the coilovers and in the arches etc and check all is in order







Glad to report all the coilies look fine, camber adjuster don't look siezed though will find out when it comes to tinkering with them !! I did find a broken anti roll bar drop link drivers side front so that needs sorting Wink

As some of you may know I've been put on short time at work so the plans to get the wheels split, larger dishes and refurbed is on the back burner for a few months, I have however been doing some sticker bombing Very Happy




Have done the front lip too but it's still in my living room !! Need to laquer and re-fit. Will update on Sunday when it's on Very Happy

no paint cracks at all. The passenger side is a bit of a mess dude to there being filler from a repair in the past but they didn't crack any paint.
