Hey guys...

I'm really new to this posting pics stuff..but i'm learning. Anyway, here's a pic of the 400. It looks like this because it's a Polaroid pic. I'll have a digital camera soon. The car has H&R's, Monotoned bumpers and panels, painted grille, clearcorners and right now stock rims. I put the EVOII's on to see how it would look.

WoW! That is exactly what I am trying to do with my car. You are much further along than I am. I like the painted grille and lower body panels. Looks Sweet. Drop is perfect too. How low is that? I am going 1.5in. How it looks as good as that. Keep it up!

Peter, Looks Great!

Are the EVO's the polished or silver finish?

The Car definately looks better than stock ride height.

Hey thanks guys...

Ash...The EVO's are polished...the picture is just really bad. I'm getting a digital camera sometime in the next 2 wks. This picture was a polaroid, which I then scanned, which I then converted to JPG, etc. etc. etc. As you can imagine the car looks better in real life! I'll post when I get the new camera...

What kind of tint are you using and also did you swop the spring pads?

Great looking car!

I'm not sure about the tint other than it's 3M. I have a buddy who owes me favors at the auto trim place near my shop, and he did it for free. As you can guess, I really didn't get into details about it. I used the same spring pads that were on the car. They looked to be the thinnest when I changed the springs.

your plastic panels that you monochromed to black, how much does it cost to paint? did they strip the originaly colour/paint on it, and then apply the new colour, or they simply repainted over it? do you know how much it costs to get the plastic panels unpainted from factory, and have them painted? I don't like the though of having stuff painted over or looks good!
