    Doing a bit more to the rina..... Putting a pair of MCN/AVO shocks in of course and a pair of custom MCN springs. Our rear coilovers wont fit with the design of the rear of the carina unfortunately

    [​IMG]

    Def going for the bumperless look on the rear

    [​IMG]

    Dunno about the front yet......

    [​IMG]

    Did a coilover conversion on the front using our MCN/AVO shortstroke adjustables. Will get a solid top mount made at some stage...

    [​IMG]

    Looks out of place with all the rusty parts

    [​IMG]

    It was a 3 man just to get the 195/45/15's to inflate on the rims but we got there

    [​IMG]

    Love the stretch on them

    [​IMG]

    Look pretty damn cool mounted too!!

    Got some overfenders on the way to test fit. Gonna get the mirrors mounted and roof rack made next week along with a couple of other things
