no mate, if you look the car's sat on 2 wheels, the jacks are only jacking up the wish bone and rear axle so i could see how the wheels would sit with the hydro's all the way down

the front might not look too low but once the 15's are on with some low profile tires it should be laying frame :vcool:

long story short, this is going in to storage for a while so i can sort out my beetle and then i'll be taking this in a different direction to where it was going (no hydraulics for a start).

couple of photo's of it going to it's new home

this is not a cop out trust lol. i just came to a realization that after all the work i had put into this car i didn't want to rag the arse out of it by dragging it's arse down the road. so the beetle is getting the hydro's and this is getting what it deserves (16v lump, full body resto, and a few trick bits).



the beetle is just a much quicker, easier and much more disposable way of getting some use out of the hydraulics :hugegrin:
