Dont worry mate all of my cars that ive lowered ive done the front first or straight after. there is nothing worse than just the rear of a car lowered coz it all got a little to hard when some back yarder tried to do the front



thats how my old calais sat, dont think im gonna go quite that low with this one

me to thats one of the reasons why i bought it lol. fixed a few things tonight. new ignition so you actually need a key to start it now. new radiator cap, and got horn working. still yet to put in new door locks. think im gonna put the passenger door lock in even though its been covered over and painted, looks like its just been boged over so could be pushed through real easy.

as for turbo plans, possibly in a little while just wanna get everything fixed on it first then will think what path i wanna go down with it

got a 2 1/4 cat back with rear muffler removed and 3'' dump tip thanks to Daniel (barnsley) off of here on Friday and put it on yesterday. looks so much cleaner than the cannon lol. took out tape deck today and put my CD player in, wasn't original tape deck but dam it was in there good, had to take half dash apart. must have bumped the heater controls or something coz now it doesn't light up so have to have another look tomorrow. will get some new pics up soon
