Whilst what you're doing isn't really my cup of tea I've got to say the work is great. As for the air... One way to stop the clampers!!

Not sure if I like the red wheels... I liked them in gold.

Keep up the work and keep the pictures coming... Like I say, not my cuppa but looks good all the same :y

Really nice fit on the rear, can you tuck the front anymore? It looks like quite abit of camber on the rear, I'm guessing if you correct it the tyre won't fit under the arch tho?

I need to remove the spacer of the front as it has aired out onto the tyre so once removed hopefully will sit better at front. And yeah I'm pleased with how rear sits. I do have a spacer on the rear I could remove then I'd be able to adjust it back. Buthe I like abit of camber lol

Id be rolling those arches back, both front and rear...

Can't you fit the adjustable camber anchors for the top of struts to get the wheel to tuck under when on full drop...?

I'm sure they are available for the Monaro, so should easily fit the Omega... with a bit of work....

Looks real good bud, I never noticed the roof rails were missing till I noticed the filler hehe. The rear camber does look good but them tyres sure ain't gonna last very long.
