I've spent the last year sourcing parts for air ride and it's finally going in. Over the moon. Going to write a list of parts and prices for anyone who wants it.

Ok so since my last post a lot has happened to the car. The air ride is sorted and been in 2 years without failing, just shows time and effort pays off. Now I know this will not be to everyones taste but I truly love my car, as you do yours :)

Here is the progress so far.

Air tank in, mounted just how I wanted with mm to spare.

Image

Love it....

Image

I sacked off the Borbets and found myself a set of Style 26's all for the grand total of £128 ha!

Image

sprayed them gold which I now regret and strapped a big carbon wing to it. haha

Image

Image

Then just my luck, a zed with black interior went to the car park in the sky. We stripped it of everything useful.

Image
Image

Decided I no longer want the hearing aid beige interior....

Image

Image

Image

Started on the new interior
Image

Image

Image

And that is where I am now at. But I have many more things in the pipeline but I do not have any photo updates as of yet. Just looking like chaos right now.

I prefer the wheels in Silver.

Lots of work and hours gone into your car :drive
