There are the last pics I have for now as this is as far as I have got. I will be getting the Lower Shock Absorber Bracket fully welded up tomorrow and measuring up a new reinforcement plate for in the boot so that the shot doesn't end up wanting to shoot through the boot floor... I can only work on the car in the weekend thanks to work but once I get more pics of the progress I'll be posting asap.

If any one has any questions or want pics of any thing in particular let me know. I'll try my best to answer or get them uploaded asap.

Stay tuned...WORK IN PROGRESS!!!!

Will get some more work done this weekend. Can't really get much done during the week as I work long hours. working on making a new reinforcement plate for the rear shock absorbers in the boot. the ones I made aren't really going to be enough so I made them bigger. Also working on the bracket for the lower control arm to be welded.

No probs. I am going to try do some work tomorrow. the lower shock mounts I made were too long and the shock bottoms out when extended so I am going to shorten and make new ones tomorrow. Might try starting on the front bag brackets also.

As promised I have new pics from my work I did last weekend. Been meaning to get these up earlier but haven't had the time to so enjoy!!!

these pics are of the new lower shock mount brackets I made due to the first ones being too long in height.

More shots of the new brackets compared to the old ones. You can see I took about 30mm off it to stop the shock from bottoming out.
