Axle flip done and dusted. Set the rear on the second lowest hole for a 70mm drop.
Took me two and a half hours to do the job.
Pretty chuffed at the outcome.

Looks pretty decent now, methinks. Not stupidly low. Went for adrive and no strange noises, no catching on speedbumps, etc.

Thanks mate.

And front bumper has been colour coded and a small custom touch in the form of a gloss black top and bottom grill and spot light covers has been done.

Looks stunning and I am collecting it tomorrow from the painter

I collected the bumper this morning and just finished fitting it.
Whole process of removing the other bumper, fitting the foglight grilles, swopping the top grill trim and badge over, and fitting the "new" bumper took about half an hour.

But it looks freaking stunning now, and the gloss black just makes it look perfect.

That looks a lot better, especially with the gloss black. But then I’m biased when it comes to gloss black
