you'd have to do quite a bit of work to a mk1 to roll it out low with no fear. it's been done, just takes time.
honestly i don't know what i'm gonna do with the exhaust right now. currently the motor fits back there with the stock exhaust minus the pea shooters. i could easily take and turn the pea shooters down and have them dump towards the ground. there's tons of room back there so it lends itself to many exhaust options. i guess i'll revisit this when i get back from the show....i still have lots of loose ends to tie up with her. the overall build is far from complete
