I have a new set of Pedders in the garage waiting to be fitted. How are you getting on with the set up? How much lift did you get and hows the ride now? I have also ordered 6 new steel wheels (25mm neg off set) and 6 new cooper discoverer s/t Maxx tyres 265 75 16 to compliment it all. Just waiting for the wheels to arrive before we get started!

Hi Steve, not had chance to drive it yet, my dad took it for the MOT the other day and said if rides very nice, a lot softer than before, prior to this set up it had original springs with OME shocks, I measured the ride hight before and after and it's lifted the rear by 1" and the front by 1/2",

Cheers
Pete

Long term a trip yes, but I bought the 6 wheels from Switzerland, and the 6 tyres from France, cheaper than I could get 5 for from UK - usually its 2x the price the other way around!

I didnt realise you had OME before, mines a standard set up - how the heck do you keep it so clean?

Wow Pete, that paint finish looks truly breathtaking! (The whole truck looks stunning TBH; I am afraid my local peasants would LOVE keying something that...)

Mine polishes up well, but how on earth do you get that depth of shine???

Got into detailing a few years ago, and it's turned into a bit of a hobby,clean & clay all the paintwork followed by a machine polish, seal & wax
Thanks for the comments
