Here with have my 86' Mk2 Golf with a standard 1.3cl powerhouse Razz
Baring in mind I just passed my driving test and being 17 I'm on a very limited budget, lowered it around 50mm this weekend (cheers to VR6brew for the front coilys) bought a DTM style backbox and some big bumpers from Muttley and hopefully after some spraying and welding they should be on her.

I know for now keeping it around 60mm, body works is pretty tight, but near side door got bumped by a van and there is the odd dent/scratch, so probably in summer the filler will be out Razz

Haven't really been up to much, (being a young'un my college seems to take priority over my car Crying or Very sad ) anyway, here are some pictures of what she currently looks like - I've got her lower at the front - the back will stay the same as I have to carry equipment/people all the time so the tyres would just scrape if it went any lower. Bought a new grille and am currently spraying and prepping my big bumpers, just need indicator lenses and maybe loom and the fixings for both the front and rear (if anyone could sort me some that would be sweet).

I'll stop rambling: here are some pictures Smile

Notice the scrape/dent on the nearside door Mad not a happy bunny!

I know! The dent in the door is annoying but will just have to fill/paint to keep it up to standard, was such a good find and for less than 500 quite a steal
