    The overall picture is "great". Really like those wheels.






    The front tires seem a bit narrow (stretched) for those rims, but that is nice. [/quote]

    Beautiful shot of this 2002 Electron Blue coupe. Lowered on stock bolts.

    Sorry no pics but just lowered on stock bolts last weekend. I have the F45 suspension on my 2001 so I was a little worried what would happen. SOTP it feels just a little bit firmer on all three settings (tour, sport, performance). Can't tell any improvement in handling since the roads were still wet and did not want to push it too hard with my Kumhos in 40-50 degree weather with the summer tires.

    My measurements before and after taken from the floor, center of the wheel, to the bottom of the fender lip. The vette was pretty square to begin with.

    Fronts were both 27-1/4 inches before; after left side at 26-1/2, right side slightly higher at 26-2/3 inches.
    Rears were 28-1/2; after 27-1/2

    I'll measure again after another drive. Hope it evens out side to side.

    Outstanding 2000 Artic White Convertible - dropped using lowering kit
    and Bilstien Sport shocks. CCW 505a rims look great as well.

    Default Finally Done

    OK gang here's a shot of mine finally finished. Lowered using T-One springs and sway bars, WCC lowering kit and Bilstien shocks.
    Ride is considerably stiffer, conering is flat as Kansas in August, compression and rebound much shorter and tighter. Big improvement
    over the Z51 suspension - but you need to make sure your fillings are tight.

    Looks good Remo. Is your dental insurance up-to-date?

    That picture has been Photochopped. Here's the original picture:



    The pictures were taken after he installed and had his new Magna Heat Extractor hood painted. Here's the thread: http://forums.corvetteforum.com/show....php?t=1809509

    Junkman how are you brah?
    I had just Googled myself, and found this thread with the pics missing. Since I deleted them when I had changed over from Imageshack to Photobucket I wanted to replace them. The 'edite' function didn't work so I just replied, didn't want to leave a void. 5 years...

    Hope you have a great holiday season!

    I saw a Remo thread active and I just figured he found a way to dial into Al Gore's Amazing Internet from the great beyond. Perhaps this was a good karma and a good moment for all of us to remember friends and family that we have all lost this year. I still feel privileged to have had the opportunity with Guy to deliver Remo's prized Quicksilver to his son Brian out on the left coast this past summer. Rest in piece my old friend. Here's a toast to you.

    Great post. Very moving as I didn't realize that Remo was not among us physically, but is still remembered spiritually.
