    Default Sedes body dropped w114

    WARNING NOT FOR THE PUREST OR FAINT OF HEART

    We mixed a S10 with a w114 Mercedes and called her "Sedes"
    This is a father son project that my son dreamed up,the only problem is he let his OCD father get involved
    My son just wanted a simple w114 lowered on air but I took it a hole other stupid direction
    Here's one of the victims

    Hi I mixed up a Lycan Supersports with a Skyscraper. Also a father to son project.

    Believe it or not, but they even made a movie about it!

    Here's a pic of the process:

    And here's victim #2
    My son traded a pos boat that he paid 100 dollars for this 2000 s10 with a blown motor but it had a great body which we parted out on Craigslist and made enough money to buy all the suspension parts and a sbc

    Sorry, we're a bit impatient here. We always have people start threads with one picture and clutter up the builds section without contributing anything.

    Pretty interesting! I really want to see where this goes.

    It wouldn't go all the way down until we dehumped the lower arms and used high angle ball joints

    Gonna suck to do that again once the ball joint goes and the whole arm is replaced (at least it's cheaper to go about replacing the entire unit in the Honda world)

    Your work is titty. That is all.
