Your car is looking great, man!

Hey, if you want red tails and don't want to cover them in film, you can pull them apart and remove the chrome "trim" with rubbing alcohol. I did mine years ago,...

Where'd you find the Euro trim? I need to order a front passenger side piece, and no dealers will source one for me. I've poked around on realoem.com, so I have the part number- just can't find...

Welcome!

You should be able to find a decent r50 (naturally aspirated, up to model year '06) around that price. A super charged version of the same vintage (r53, or Cooper S) will likely be around...

Got it. I just lowered it the rest of the way down. I should have realized that the whopping 1/4" I got was not going to affect anything too drastically. The car is sitting pretty now, and that'll...

Thanks Rally. That's why I felt the need for quotes around 'negative' preload. I had seen the term somewhere and it never made sense.

I don't mind that the springs will be loose when the car is on...

But bringing the red collars down would make the spring loose in its perch. Which would cause that 'negative preload' situation. No?

No, on the shock in the picture (same one I was messing with yesterday), I loosened and threaded the silver collar up to the red ones, which frees up the shock body to thread up and down in the grey...

That's the problem-- I can't thread the shock down anymore. It's bottomed out. I assume the sleeve it threads into is only threaded down to a certain point, and I've hit that.

Thanks for talking me out of that one. I guess those are all the things I knew would happen if I lowered the car more. It's good to have it spelled out though.

Going lower on Megans

I want to go lower (20-30mm, if possible) on the front and rear of my r53 on Megans. I pulled the front wheel off today to thread the strut down, only to find that it's as low as it will go. The only...

Thanks for all the input, guys. I ended up just buying LR5 (it's only like $80 or so), and have so far been very happy. Until now, my only editing/processing software was Nikon View NX2 on my old PC....

Hello again

It's been a while. I was early to a photo shoot yesterday and snapped a few of my car in a parking lot. I thought it looked pretty good, and that I would share with you all.

I have a 10-20 f3.6, and I've done some night shooting with that one slammed all the way to 10mm. I'd like at least a 2.8 10mm for starry landscapes. Go try yours tonight and share!

WTB- Canadian wheel arches

A while back, I bought some wheel arches (the part that attaches to the front and rear bumper) from a guy in Canada. They don't have the parking lights like our DOT ones do. Recently, one of...

Konstantinos, yes. That shot was around 10 seconds, but I cranked the ISO way up. Around 3200, if I remember correctly. I've shot other night sky photos at lower ISO, but it seems that once you go...
