I wish my mind was more function oriented sometimes. I've always had this obsession with inconviniencing myself by trying to go as low as possible, with all of my cars.

Me too. ^^^^ I love the look, but I'd rather whip the corners.

Quick update:

All of my bag suspension parts are finally in! I'll be done wiring and plumbing the car this weekend, and the actual bags are going in sometime next week!

Too much poke with the brock b6's, so i'll be running these centerlines for a bit.

specs: 18x8 +30 spaced out 8mm to +22. I'll be wrapping them in 205/40/18 tires.

Test fit: SITTIN' ON CHROME!!!

These are just temporary. I don't know what i'll end up getting; 18's for sure though. I think i've been looking at too many bagged mk6 and mk7 jettas, LOL. I think i might actually rock these Chrome too! If not i'll plasti-dip them white!

Not a fan of chome, but your car can pull it off. I like the flushness!

Yeah, that's what I'm scared of, haha. Such a hassle driving a slammed focus around because the pinch welds are so damn low, unlike the other cars i've owned in the past. Can't wait to get my air ride in. Ride at a comfortable height, and air out when i want to look pretty .

Ran the air lines behind my glove box. The fittings used to make this splitting manifold are the only HD compression fittings i'm using; so don't worry. The more vital fittings on the air tank and air bags are legit Parker DOT fittings.

Mounted my paddle switches in the coin tray, right above the cup holders. Stealthy, lol...

Totally destroyed my dashboard and mounted the gauges here. Should have taped up the area before I decided to drill; had a few drill slips as you can see in the pics...

Trunk setup pics coming soon, Just need to tidy up a bit.

Super stealthy with the switches then put the gauges in the most hideous spot imaginable. Respect the work but I think you could have put way more thought into gauge location/ setup, that just looks tacky to me :/
