So this weekend i got time to sit and have a play with J'ROF

From starting like this:

whack that rear end up in the air and get started!!

Old worn out snowflakes removed and the suspension out too :vcool:

Took the front wheels off only to discover some very rusty and fairly worn discs, so popped off to the local motor factors and £20 later came home with a pair of vented front discs

then back to work on the wheels and suspension

and eventually we have this:

TA-DA!

Wolfrace 40th anniversary slotmags. Initially i wasnt keen on these but after seeing them in the flesh me likey!

Sat on 195/50/15 yokohama's all round :)

I've already raised the suspension a little as after a quick drive (and left overnight) the springs settled a bit more and we had some rubbage.

But im pretty pleased with how its all come out :groove:

That looks really good, I've got a set of 15" ATS Cups on the way to me just now, going to put the car on adjustable coils while I'm changing them around too.

How much would you say you've dropped your car by? Looks really good at that height.

the drop is not huge

maybe between 50-40mm, the coilies will go lower but will get arch rubbage if i drop it any more

cups look nice on rocco's and i was thinking of getting some but i wanted something a bit different and not been done before on a rocco :vcool:

Cool, I was going to go for 40mm myself.

Yeah it's my first rocco, infact my first car! so I'm lacking imagination just now, haha.

Shiny wheels!!!

What brand of discs did you get for that price. Sounds like a bargain?

The discs are quinton hazell, a company I know well through working in the trade and they are ok.

Just popped down my local wilco auto stores as I have trade account with them but pre trade price was only £24 anyway.
