    Default put my eibachs on correctly this time

    but the front is still a little higher. about 2 1/2 finger gap at the rear and just over 4 fingers at the front. Any suggestions? Oh yeah, I got one of my ZG flares on. the paint is still drying on the others. I don't know, does it look right? seems like the front should be a little lower.

    yes, in actuality, every 240 I have owned and lowered has been a little taller in front, I was hoping this would be different.

    Same here, I have noticed that the front is generally higher. It makes the car look like it's ready to haul some serious ass. Your car looks great, and I love the zg flares.

    Oven is for powdercoating, the fridge is for essential hydration! You can see the Z31 brake that I powdercoated 350Z daytona blue for someone today hanging in the first pic here
    Prox, yes, they are 15" rewinds, from the NASA deal. $275, delivered!

    Here it is with the flares installed, just finished!

    I think I'm gonna paint the lower rocker panels and under the rear bumper black to match the flairs and front bumper, so it will flow better. My wife won't let me paint the hood black.

    Looks great those Konig Rewinds fill the guards better than I would have thought they could. How wide are they? Have you done anything special to get it to fill the guards better?

    its the new msa version 3 bumper, I;ll take pics later today.

    The Konigs are 15x7 +0 with 1" spacers. I'm running 280 hubs up front for my toyota brakes, because thats what the spacers were made for, and the wheels don't clear the brake without spacers. With the spacers, the tires sat a little out of the fenders, which led to the flares.

    thanks. You have to trim about 3 inches of the front of the flares to make them work with the airdam. Also, a lot of people use VW welting between the flare and the fender. I used 3m trim adhesive tape from pepboys instead, which also held the flares attached while I drilled the mounting holes.
