Still have lots of work to do once the guy doing the repair has restrengthened the holes and joins.

Also polished my rear lights.

I picked up a set of RS*R Ti2000 lowering springs from Dell'Orto. 3.15kg/mm front and 5kg rear. Possibly 100% stiffer over stock.

Hopefully make the car handle better and look better. 20-30mm drop. Ideally I would get new adjustable Koni Yellows to go with them but funds won't allow at this point.

After a bit of trouble getting one of the strut top nuts off I finally managed to install the new springs. CRC and a bit of determination with a breaker bar got it undone.

There is at least a 30mm drop front and rear.

Thanks. I am really happy with the way it looks now. I also like how it sits much flatter through corners.

I have entered a few photos for January.

My work mate has let me borrow his 10-22mm lens for my camera so I will hopefully get some more photos to add to this thread. Quite a wide angle lens so you can get some creative shots.

Looks like your up against some stiff competition for the January slot.

Yes it does. Two MR2s vs one. You live in a better part of the country too.
