SLK Gold Calipers & Vogtland Springs...hacked, yes I know!!!

I know it's not ideal's my project of which I can experiment with so I cut 3/4 off the front coils to achieve this stance. I like it. Didn't seem to change ride quality too much but there is a difference. I mostly mill around town in traffic or drive to work on good roads so I'm not worried about much. Put the factory 16's on, painted the calipers gold, didn't want to go with red. Decided to spray the paint on a brush, brush it on heavy then hit it with my heat gun for quick dry. Came out pretty good, even coats.
