    Default 96 Saturn SW2

    Im workin on a 96 SW2. Got it dropped and stanced a bit next is gonna be over fenders of some kind I just need to do some work to get that done and order spacers for the rear. Just trying to get some second opinnions on it or advice on what to do next. This is how it sat the day I through the wheels on, dropped the front another half inch later that day... Thought the back looked good though. I was forced to put 1/4in spacers on the front in order to make the wheels clear the brakes but this should be fine once i get the over fenders, Ill actually be going wider.

    Wheels are Diamond Racing 16x8 +12mm offset with .25in spacers in the front.
    I have ground control adjustable sleeves with OEM struts currently.

    Ooh! I like this! Would look nice with the flares on it and a bit more low. I'd polish the headlights up though! Easy to do and makes a huge difference.

    yup headlights are gonna get polished real soon. (possibly today) I had midterms last week so I didnt have much time to do anything. This week should have the front bumper finished with a lip, headlights polished and possibly over fenders and spacers for the rear

    Default Legit pics

    Started a flickr account so i can post good pics....so here are a few Ive taken up to where the car is now. Its about 1/2in lower in the back than it is in most these pics. I should be ordering my over fenders in a week when i get paid. Should be goin about an inch wider in the back and another quarter inch in the front. gonna drop it some more when I get those too. Biggest issue is raising funds... Oh, and i started polishing the driver side headlight, my drills battery died and i discovered I left my charger at my friends shop an hour away...so now i have one unpolished and one half polished light while the car is sitting waiting for a clutch master cylinder.

    Welp, heres how shes sittin in my apartment parking lot and where she'll stwy for tje rest of the week at least. Gotta get a clutch master/slave cylinder. Fixie is my only transportation until then. I guess i can take some time to get the front lip mounted and mayne go to pick n pull to get a wiper delete plug since i pulled the blade off and im gonna take the motor out tonight. Im also gonna take some stuff out the engine bay and trunk (mostly all wiper and sprayer components). Im also gonna finish my driver door, it is off another car since i fucked up the original door. The driver door is off of a base model so has black instead of color match handles. It also doesnt have the electric locks on the inside so im gonna wire those to my old door handle which i still have along with switchin out the stock speaker with my pioneer 6 1/2. Best part though is that I now have a rollie on my driver door which i absolutely love. Im thinking at some point i might switch them all to rollies since the electric windows in these cars always seem to break (i currently have only front windows tjwt go down). well anyways heres some pics ill update as I do some work.







    (btw these pictures are pretty heavily edited because my tablet camera isnt great and the lighting was garbage where I was parked)

    I was thinking some monroe air struts i found for cheap ($122 for 4) so probably those until i save enough for coils, coils will happen this summer when im working full time and bringing in more money. Originally I was thinking some adjustables for a WRX but for that price I could have coils. I just need sometjing better than OEM so that I can carry people and tools at work wothout bottoming out on the dirt roads I have to drive on....

    I know its not ideal, but itll have to do temporarily
