I would recommend adjustable coilovers in case it ever needs to be towed.

You can get under the car and raise the springs to the bumpers don't scrape.

oh so like you can raise it at any moment? rather than springs having to be taken to the shop to lower or raise?

There are nuts on the springs that you can adjust yourself. Not easy since you have to take the wheels off. But it is possible.

You need to get at least 4 cans. Keep in mind that the rims are exposed to all sorts of elements, and need proper protection. Only using 2 cans would make the job look choppy, cheap, and would tear apart easily.

I'd also recommend buying a spray handle as well.

It's sold at Home Depot because it wasn't originally meant for cars. You can buy it at any car store. I saw it at Advance Auto Parts last week. It's been used on all sort of sports cars as well.

Don't knock it until you try it. Especially when you haven't even heard of it.

It's not paint. Not anywhere close to being paint either.

Are you ever going to do cosmetic mods?

No cosmetics ever. May get some carbon fiber parts if I really get into racing like hoid, hatch, wing, and splitter but only if they will help improve performance.

you should plasti dip the rims at least. it makes the car look completely different.

i tried smoking my rear lights today with plasti dip but i put to much on one side and not enough on the other.
