the bonnet was a long drawn out affair. i had a mate do it from school, who charged to much money took to long and done a rubbish job tbh, so i put the word out and a local bloke who does graff took up the challenge. took him 1 week and charged £40. then it needed 4 coats of laquer which i got done for free. just needs flatting and polishing now

£40 for that is cheap as chips fairplay!

and a pic of the back. sounds good with the roof on or off. loud enough to make my eyes vibrate. stealth enough to look decent and not look completely out of place

Re: somerset del sol. new stereo setup fitted 23/12/13

Postby solrider1985 » Tue Jul 29, 2014 11:00 pm

major update.

things added since the last update.

shmidt th line 16x8.5 et 18 front 16x9's rear et 14 with 195/45/16 tyres. 8 degrees of camber on the rear 6 degrees of camber on the front
modified d2 rear camber arms
bc coilovers
stock del sol leather seats

have been having trouble with the front of the car. from standard the bc springs are pretty soft, 10kg front 8kg rear. the coilovers at the front are set all the way down and I have had the obvious trouble of the uppwer arms fouling the shock tower. so I have had the shock tower modified to make more room. it helped but didn't solve the problem, so I put 14kg springs on the front and I don't have it fouling any more but sits to high. so am just in the process of changing front springs for 12kg. will get more pics up later
