Re: Project upgrade dory

Haven't tried whole car sound deading. Whole car sounds like it's dying, does that count?
Sounds trick. (do the youngsters still say that :conf: ), and of everything I feel like I really want to see the tartan roof liner, genius! Like the idea of the oil catch can too, maybe if I had one under my car the drive wouldn't look such a mess
Keep up the good work (and then take some pictures)

Re: Project upgrade dory

So next on the list for dory is to get some rear camber plates as the wheels just don't site right too me hahaha looking at -1.5 so should sit pretty looking about 80 quid for them from DNA racing so not too bad their is I guy near me that reckons he can make me some but don't trust him and won't get a warranty with them either.

After the camber plates I just need wait till my air ride comes in from the state's and then pay for it then it might be chassis notch and she will sit mega low hoping for chassis touching when all down hahaha and yes I know I'm slightly mad lol

I know I've probably asked before but humour me... Why is your car called Dory?

Re: Project upgrade dory

Well it's time to order the biggest mod I have ever done too a car yet going to be a big thing and I don't know about taking pictures for the thread but when it's finished the turm "lowered-punto" will be well used as dory is getting bagged spoke to a few folk and have decided that the lowest route is corsa d shocks with air lifts newest management 3p will need a chassis notch cut on the passenger side and God knows what else.

This also is a big thing as far as I'm aware there has not being a blue gp bagged yet so I'm the first one even better loom forward too your thoughts.
