      i would do 13" again but no more SUMITOMO tires so i will run my 15" and be as low as i would on 13" because when its on the ground its on the ground no matter what wheels are on it lol

      This is true sir, I can drop it without really any rub now but the oil pan scraps and i need spacers in the rear forsure and the will rub,So if i go with a slightly less wide tire i should be tiits

      plans for "LOWDEZL"

      1. registration is due lol at a low low price of $19.50 so ill be getting the custom plate
      2. Get off my lazy BUTT and finish sanding my car down in the triple digit heat
      3. clean the surface rust with this surface rust remover i found works real good and spray a light coat of primer on all of it
      4. then wheel bearing all around been quoted $400 bucks for all four because they are press in.
      5. then paint by the all mighty KAROL
      6. 3" drop plates for the rear and a shorty oil pan both from oldskoolvw.com

      it is an original thermador got it from an old man in texas who bought it fourty years ago used it once then put it in storage.

      works very well as long as there is little to no humidity

      So after seeing these pics i went and got a cig pack and did the samething, i'm alot lower then i thought.... I have just under a quarter inch on top of the height of the cig pack...Not bad for just coils and i'm not as low as i can get..... Need that oil pan first....
