Project X: phase 2other wheels/tires, removed side trim,
installed stereo, replaced back muffler,
installed coil-over lowering suspension
|wheels:||spoked alloy 6 x 14 Ronals from Golf GTI, 185/55/14 tires|
|side trim:||I removed the trim that runs along the side of the car for a cleaner look|
|stereo:||- Pioneer with cd changer
- Magnat 4x40 watt amp.
- Pioneer/Quarts speakers front/rear
|exhaust:||replaced the back muffler with a Cherry Bomb, retaining standard end pipe|
|owered suspension:||installed a set of Intrax coil-overs, it's adjustable in ride height.|
|other:||This was a very time and money consuming part of the project - especially
the lowering set was expensive. I eventually went back to the manufacturer
because I felt the ride was too hard for the money. They rebuilt the
shocks to my liking while I performed the labor of taking apart the
suspension and putting it back together again. It was worth it, the
car drives pretty smooth for being lowered, especially at higher speeds.
I used stereo parts from two previous cars for the setup in Project X. The muffler needed replacement, but I didn't feel like spending money on a new one, so I used a cherry bomb I had lying around.
