These are the zoom springs recompressed, so I can only do that with the integra springs in it atm but can do that if I remember when I change them

It would be nice if you could show dimension of those springs
(height, diameter and diameter of the wire)

Getting lower.. Still raking though, but another slight improvement. Springs aren't fully captive which is a slight worry. Next in line for suspension changes will be to shorten the shock to make them captive and take it a bit lower still. Front is sitting 40mm higher than rear, but I'm not sure if I want to get the front that low, it's really slammed in the back

Mother F**ker. Was it still next to the car at least?? I'm lucky both my City's are weekend toys, so only get driven when the weather is nice & don't have to leave them un-guarded etc ;)

Yeah it was on the ground next to the car but can't find the spring that holds it onto the car. These mirrors are really weird and you need that spring so until I get one its off the car. Also mirror has a chip in the corner

Boring no photo update. City is back on the road. Bit the bullet with rust repairs and fixed the other stuff. Drivers side CV has had enough though now, a lot of noise coming down there :( finally replaced the plastic dash screen with the one I got forever ago, will grab a picture when I can, it's nice though. New turbo is -this close- to being ready to go in, got the boss at work to go at it with a flamethrower in order to get the housings separated so I can re adjust to make the oil lines fit. Took a further look at the back of the firewall when the car was on a hoist, it's gonna be a squeeze getting the new turbo in with the adapter, but I think and HOPE that it fits... Engine parts still sitting at their places, not much word as of yet. Getting Todd to repaint my bumpers because the paint is starting to peel, he mustn't have prepped it properly. Considering getting them black again (?) but haven't come to a decision. Hopefully fun picture updates to come in the not so far future :D

Also, this:

The empty box in the middle says "fuel cut", but looks like something should be plugged into that area? Shed some light on it anyone? ^^

The only thing is I removed the side trim, I think it might look weird with black bumpers but no side trim

Personally I think it looks Great in the all-blue, I have Black bumpers on my Turbo 1 which I resprayed black awhile ago, and the back one is now starting to peel :( The red Vinyl strip actually cost me a small fortune!
