Looks real good man!

I got a question, did you have any clearance issues with the with the locking rings hitting or rubbing on the tire with the front two coils? I ask cause i have the same coils as you and if i lowered it anymore in the front it would dig into the sidewall. Oh one more question, do ya know how many threads you have left to go down?

Thanks. Yes I have the same issue, I run the car with out spacers and almost ruined the new tires thankfuly found some 5mm spacers (maybe 8mm? it's aprox 1/4 of an inch) and problem solved.

In the fronts I have like 1/4" of threads and 1/2" in the rear. The first pictures with the coils are in full drop, the new ones are with the new set-up.

Well I have options, the problem it's the lack of money

This it's like a project itself because I have to find an extra barrel and lip to complete the 4 wheels, then do all the restoration work and figure out how to fit this suckers on the Cabrio.

I was thinking in redrill the hubs to 5x120...?

^Thanks!

Yesterday I put the wheels at the hubs to see how they fit on the fenders, with a 20mm 4x100 to 5x120 adapters I should not have problems (I hope)
