      It has a cut in it, going vetically if you're standing at the trunk. Then i just pull one side up and the other will lift up to get it out. I still have one of those repair canisters incase, which would probably be easier.

      I don't see how you can go any lower with the spacer/tire setup you have. You are tucking everywhere from what it looks like.

      I really can't, and plus i'll be getting 10mm spacers up front soon. I think with smaller tires it would stop the rubbing, but overall I am happy at this height.

      In other news, I took the drives side strut out today only to find I couldnt get the nut off for the bushing and bearing, then realized my bump stop was destroyed. Good thing Ian^^ has a spare for me

      I'm still young, but in my 4th semester of college, after working 45+ hours a week and going to school, I STILL don't understand where kids like Zach get the money. Any tips? Haha nice build man.

      hahhaa. my tip for those wondering where all their money goes is keep track of how much you spend on your girlfriend. i personally would have a leeeegit ass dub if it wasnt for the old ball and chain. ive got the usual coilovers and such but a guy i work with has put 30k into his Delorean (yes he has a delorean) and he doesnt have a girlfriend (mind you he delivers Chinese food as well )

      Haha, this is the truth. I would say over half of what I earn goes to Friday nights with the girl or food or gifts, but it's worth it

      Want to refurb the RC's for now, I really like the look and plan on keeping them regardless of any future wheel upgrades, so might be doing that soon

      Probably will have them done professionally, all damage repaired and re-powder coated.

      Crazy time today, drove down to a GTG in Santa Cruz through CRAZY rain storms, won 6 prizes: amp energy drinks, an 034 motorsport engine mount, a "Looxcie" wearable camcorder, some wine which i gave away, two t-shirts

      On the way home my friend Jeremy ran out of gas on a deserted road, had to go back to get gas and ended up going through 4 feet of flood water twice, yes it was in the engine bay, then pulling back on the highway I found another dubber Paul in his MK2, heading home from the GTG and we went back to Jeremy, my belt squealing from the water. Got Jeremy filled up with gas and drove through the worst fog ever, on an 8 foot wide road, slamming sub frame the whole way. Almost drove off a few cliffs, but all in all a good day, and an unforgettable set of memories:
