Here are some photos that I forgot to add from last summer ...
Brief visit to check progress, should be done in march, just waiting for the interior to be re-trimmed.

Martin has done a fantastic job!!

Just reading through your post where did you get the correct lowered springs and dampers from?

She got over it a couple of hours later once we were rescued and back in the 9-3 Soft Top - I even kept the roof up for extra brownie points!

Well there's the thing, I'm not sure it's quite right and think that actually it's sitting a little bit high.
Can't remember if we went for later suspension parts or not now!

Fronts have been converted to later 99 gl springs with bilstein B6 front dampers.

What needs to be changed for the conversion? Or is it just a straight swap?
