Espero by Viper

Postby Viper » Sun Oct 21, 2007 2:51 am

Hi, my name is Vedran , I am from Croatia and I drive a 97' Daewoo Espero

So here it is..

it was like this before I got my hands on it

Image

Image

I bought some new rims, from factory 185/65/14 I went to 215/35/18

Image

I had to put some track spacers on the rear axle , 2cm on each side

Image

Image
but then it was normaly very high , it looked like a monster truck
so , I ordered Eibach springs -30mm for it, but by mistake they gave me -30mm for Nexia , and it lowered the front about 70mm and the rear about 40mm , I was very pleased

Image

Image

Image

Image

that was it for a while..

then the project started

because of the big rims, the rear brakes looked silly , so I got the rear axle from a Vectra 2.0

first I dissasembeled it..because it was rusty and didn't work ..

Image
By ViperZG

I got rid of all the rust and painted it in mat black

Image
By ViperZG

the callipers were repaired , fitted with new parts..

Image
By ViperZG

old vs. new discs

Image
By ViperZG

new discs painted in mat black

Image
By ViperZG

all new parts fitted and assembeled

Image
By ViperZG

old vs. new axle

Image
By ViperZG

after a while driving and parking , I scratched a rim , so I decided to repair them and paint them

painted the inside in mat black

Image
By ViperZG

very carefully I had to tape the rim to be painted

Image
By ViperZG

the rims repaired and painted

Image
By ViperZG

on the car with the new disc

Image
By ViperZG

then it was the cars turn, so I started do take it apart

Image

and the new rear spacers, 3cm per side

Image
By ViperZG

Image
By ViperZG

the front bad look

Image
By ViperZG

Image

and finally ready for a little trip

The car was then driven 100km like that

The custom front and rear bumper are being made at the moment , as well as the custom sideskirts and rear wing, I expect it to be finished and painted by the end of the week, so till the next report ...
