Re: Lowered Zetec - worth the wait!!!
Thanks for the compliments, I haven't met anyone who doesn't like it now, it's awesome what a simple 40mm drop will do to change from a simple hatchback that nobody looks at to one that everyone stares at!!!
Kymera4 I'm putting on a stock front spoiler, the factory one just likes yours. I know i'll get scrapes, I have already scraped the standard black plastic/rubber strip. Worth it in my books!!!!! I'tll look better and the factory unit is the smallest lip I can find anyway. Just what I'm looking for to balance out the car. Don't need skirst or that rear bit, just the front. I told you my car would begin to look more and more like yours!!!! But yeazh as soon as I started working full time the whole "never modding" it kinda got blown out the window lol... the list is extending to front spoiler, cat-back zorst, rear wing and possibly colour coded moudling. Then I'm sweet!!! And broke.
Brother I did keep the standard shocks, all stock as a rock save for the lower springs. Works great, a bit floatier, not as supremely balanced as say the ST170 but for overall body control it's now much better. Generally it handles 95% better, just the bigger undulations and bumps where tha car crashes a bit much for my liking, but overall the looks and handling pays off. I just need to keep of bloody Parramatta Road. I don't have to go sideways over speedhumps or anything so it's cool, it's not exactly a 200sx with NO springs...
As for the reversing light, forgot I had done that. It is still connected to the rear fog bulb actually so it comes on when i turn on the rear fog. It uses the same bulb, so all that needs to be done is to have the wires crossed over. I'm investigating how to do it properly, if not i'll just splice them over. Right now it's just for looks, but I get people now telling me one has blown and I have to explain!!!
