      I don't wanna high Jack the thread. Just giving some insight. <br>Mines a daily driver. With all that done, the air'd up is suprisingly lower than most static drops. So I still hurt going over speed bumps & dips.

      Of course!<p>So did you cut up the bay or did you just notch the strut tower hat so the arms would push though...<p>If I just did that how much lower do you think I could get the front?

      Hmmm that may be my little project this weekend. Its much easier to replace a strut tower hat then it is to cover holes in an engine bay.<p>Sick avant by the way I've seen it a few times.

      Yeah I air hammered mine first. But didn't work like thought. <br>What I should have done was let the arms knock on it over time to have a reference as where to cut. Now I'm gonna try to fit an S4 or passat cover on it to cover the holes up. <br>If that doesn't fit properly I'll weld in some metal dome providing it has clearence from the hood to cover them.<br> I'm loving the vibe of your ride. That color flows so well on black <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://**********************/smile/emthup.gif" BORDER="0"> <BR><BR>

      Cutting my rain tray got me on the ground, working on the covers but the snow has gotten in the way. I really like your set-up though. If done right the cuts can be barely visible with the cover in.

      When you say cover do you mean the battery cover? <p>I'm gonna cut spots in the hat so it'll come down some more the lips on those things are pretty gnarly. I would really like to gain like an inch I'm not really trying to be on the ground just yet. I'd like to get a new daily beater first so the A4 can be a weekend/show cruiser.

      I've always been a fan of your car and to be honest I got little upset when I saw you are going with bags but boy, was I wrong!<p>Can't wait for Santi's pics.

      Yeah I meant rain tray. I never thought about notching the hat first. Whatever works works i figure. Our cars sit kinda high on the ground up front.
