Im doing somewhat close to what your doing with your prelude. hope to see what it looks like in the future. For your BBS, your just painting the face, not the lip correct?

yeah bronze would look really cheap and cheesy on stock sh wheels imo. Maybe bronze/gold on some mb battles or vs-xx but not these

Ok, that's what I was thinking. I was thinking there's no way you have adequate suspension travel on the front end with it that low. I tried running like that on the track once, and it was a disaster. Even with very high spring rate front springs, the front kept bottoming out.

yeah my cars not being built for the track or for maximum function like yours. the extensive drop is for style and form, not function thats why i titled this build a "stance" build

I was just curious to see if you had done anything to gain front suspension travel.
