    Ему бы еще фарки родные вернуть, а то весь вид портят. Их как будто с тюненого ВАЗа переставили.
    The car would look nicer with the original headlights. This lights are ugly.

    This is amazing. You made the control arms yourself?

    I would suspect many parts for older American vehicles over there cost lots of bucks....serious bucks.

    I did it myself arm.
    I wanted to improve the brakes and make a minivan driven. I wanted to get rid of the buildup. I'm tired of sleeping bed minivan.
    The original arm is weak and is not suitable for the installation of brakes from Camaro and knuckle.

    Yeah, but shipping cost $13 minimum for one kg if the part is not huge. So heavy stuff sometimes costs twice and more than in US. That's why I still didn't get new struts =)
