Get it down Olly!!
I must admit I cheated and fitted front and rear hydros to help me avoid grounding out, and to annoy boy racers at the lights by taking the attention away from them!!
I couldn't get my fingers between the top of the tyre and the top of the arch. The only thing that stopped this being that much lower was the tyre profile. I did consider tubbing the front arches at one point!!

Hahah, thats well smart, cheers Carl, loving the digi image! Yup I love the rake, but I rather cleverly managed to reverse it into a neighbours Pug a few days ago, did no damage to either vehichle thank god, but got me a bit wary! But thats largely because all I can see outta the back is blue sky... haha. So me old grease monkey Ricardo is going to do a 1 spline rear lowering, should still be raked, but it'll sit more level and I'll have more faith around roundabouts. Also gona get him to put the front up an inch... yeah I know im a pussy, but theres a grinding noise developing from something (poss dust guards?) and I think I prefer a more level look now anyway. The plan was to spray it over this Xmas week, but the weather has been against me, so it'll prob be early summer now, sob sob. On the plus note, it now has no leaky roof, I've managed to plug all the holes, painted the interior floor in lovely gloss black, and have done some other small jobs.

Yup (pulls baby face and sighs)... started doing it again. I'm not scared to drive it,. but it defo has put me off a bit. I haven't driven it since I reversed into K's neighbours car. Need it lowering at the rear, not too confident with it that high now. Wish it was the summer so I could get out there and start preppeing... so frustrating the bloody winter aint it. Sad Sad
