Trust me, I asked the same thing when i saw him!!!
He did a good job with the cutting and he is the only one dare to do it beside me at that shop.
First impression (without front fender installed ), LSD over all did a good job beside there is a hole need to drill inside the fender area and cutting a huge chunk off the door and need some welding back the installation was pretty straight forward, for anyone likes working on your car your self, I strongly suggested you have enough beer and buddy around plus the wife locked out, this thing takes my shop two days already and they still got one side to cut today!
For a kit selling that expensive I would expect some sort of installation menu or some sort of help but there isn't any.
I'll post more when it gets done.
Might want to stick with "before" and "after" pics only.
Agreed. It's like showing all the details of a heart transplant. Not all of us can stand looking at the gutting of a car. I can't believe my heart was pounding just looking at those photos. You are indeed a brave man to do that to a brand new SLK.
Bip, what tires and rims do you have? The front tires do look wider than the stock tires?
Meanwhile in Europe, legislators are trying to effectively outlaw ALL aftermarket modifications. Under the draft legislation, fitting any part (that's alloy wheels, spoilers, stereos, lights . . . anything) that deviates from what was fitted during manufacture will render the vehicle liable for the kind of expensive type approval testing that kit car builders and small volume manufacturers face.
In the words of the proposal, "components of the vehicle must comply with characteristics at the time of first registration."
So I say enjoy the few vestiges of freedom we still have and modify away. I still couldn't cut up a new SLK though!
