The 99.5: Uncharted mental territory.

Like an enigma wrapped in a riddle wrapped in chinchilla, LBM will bring you in and out of consciousness with alternating waves of outer space-like freshness and pharaonic opulence. You can think of the Paris based design firm like a renaissance man from the future, whose inspirations age timeless, yet capture and astound those in the present.

I consulted the vortex and they advised that a berry-go-round mural would "flow" better

:D

Thankz to everybody's favourite uncle for stopping by on Saturday! I got all the stuff on, and removed the lower collar in the rear and bottomed out the top one for another ~1/3" of drop... made a notable difference. The rears will be receiving an 8-10mm spacer, and the fronts couldn't be tighter... Rando helped me roll the fenders after I yanked the fender liners... the driver's side was much tighter than the pass... weird.

I also cut out one of the liner's mounting tabs on the driver's side and epoxied all the way around the inside of the lip... took it for a more extensive test drive and there doesn't seem to be much if any contact.

I'm super stoked. Here's a terrible shot because I forgot to charge my camera battery and the car is still FILTHY.

Don't be in such a hurry to condemn a person because they don't do what you do, or think as you think. There was a time when you didn't know what you know today...

$100 for MkIII and under. $109 for MkIV.

Can't be too much margin once you consider costs of manufacturing equipment.

$110 for mkIVs, $100 for older gens... prototype? :)

DW doesn't need your help steve :lol: ;)

EDIT: beaten to the punch... anyways that hardware ain't cheap either... I thought they were priced really well when they dropped.

It'd be nice not to shred my fender liner every time I go over a hump but aesthetics-wise I am on the fents... I think bernie's car looks terrible, but dymer's car benefited from them. YOU definitely need to go low enough that the wheel is at least centred if not a bit forward still... on bernie's the wheel is slightly rearward and it looks very odd.
