Mounted and ready for the next flat. It's now the prettiest, cleanest thing under the Cruiser.
Now it's time to do that exhaust.

And replace your Jounce Bumpers, the one on the right looks pretty bad, I'll bet the one near the exhaust is toast.

And put a rear sway bar on. I recently did and it makes a big difference on cornering.

I've thought about it. I have a stainless muffler with a cool tip, I just don't want the 4 cyl cackle.

It looks amazing!!! But I think you've opened Pandora's box. Now you need to detail the entire undercarriage...

You could get a tire cover to protect your project?
This is what I did with my PT Cruiser spare.
