Why is this in painting and bodywork? Should be in "Engine, Drivetrain and Chassis". Oh well.. next time.

Depending on the suspension there are a number of things you could do. Pretty sure the front is coil spring on those, so cutting down the springs and spindles is just a matter of removing enough material to shorten them. Can you post a picture of the parts, front and rear? That would help.

My favorite color is clear. I am also ambidexterous, I can screw up equally well with either hand. I am 53 years old and been building for most of that time. :)

Sorry I figured you might have to body work to lower it but ya I'll get some pictures. The front end has the cross member where the engine sits

Normally a drop is performed using only the suspension parts. It's likely you won't even have to modify the frame, sooo.. bonus eh?

Are you using a file share like photobucket? Their ad gauntlet is rediculous!

Okay, here's the easy way. After your photo is uploaded to photobucket, click on it. That will bring up the photo full size and four flags on the right. Pick the bottom one that says image. Click on it. It should automatically copy the image. If it doesn't it will highlight it blue. Then right click and copy, paste it here. Your previous link isn't working as I'm sure you know.

I'm right there with you chum! Sitting about, doing what you want when you want, watching TV to all hours. Sounds totally awesome until you do it for about three months. Then you're out of your skull wanting nothing more than to go back to work! I swear disability is what's killing me.
