Hopefully the picture comes out okay, I'm uploading from my iPhone. Ordered a 4gal tank and 2 viair compressors with hardware. It'll be the start of my bagbuild. I have yet to install my header and buy brackets for the seats. Looking into doing a single exit exhaust with bumper swap but keeping the corksport piping.

Haha it's basically all that I think about too. I had coilovers for about a month and then decided to take them off for this. What are some of your plans for lowering? Are you looking into Airride?

I'd never be able to do bags where I live, my car's my daily and the winter is vicious (Canada...) so I'm sure it would destroy the bags... So I'm going the coilover route with BC coilovers, I'm decided on BC's unless some insane deal on good coilovers comes my way but I doubt that... For the summer I want to tuck some tire and then raise it back up for the winter, need to powdercoat my wheels candy teal so there's alot going on hahaha that's what it seems like to me atleast...

You should contact airlift or whichever vendor and see how their bags hold up to weather. I daily my 3 as well. I've been stock piling all the things I've bought cuz I haven't had time or the money to install. So i definitely feel like it's a slow process. My bc's are for sale but I'm in the states, oregon. They're barely used but I've been asking not much less than a new set would be.

I've thought about it, but my car's outside all winter, no garage or anything so it would probably be testing the limits of how well it lasts as it's out there for 6 months of winter and I figure no point in spending money on that... Shipping would be rank to Canada which is unfortunate for everything I buy from the states so coils are definitely going to be bought from somebody in Canada! I can't even compare to having the parts and not being able to put them on... My parts are just in my head hahaha

Oregon winters are just lots of rain haha. I think I'll so some searching and see how bags hold up in certain weathers.
And yeah I've had my coilovers for about a year and then I finally installed them during the summer and then I took them off about a month later. Lol

Just a lot of brutal cold here -40 every winter and tons of snow, if it only rains for your winter bags are
definitely the way to go! Why wouldn't you leave them on until you got bags?? Too rough for you?

I did a quick search on it and some people have been on Airride for a few years at very low temps. It's just depends on what precautions you take. Like Anti freeze in the lines.
And I took them off because I thought I was going to sell them right away. And then make the purchase on Black Friday. There was a pretty nice deal but I ended up not having enough money. I sold my wheels but that wasn't until after haha. So now I'm just saving. I've thought about putting them back on in the spring tho. I miss the lows. I loved how the bcs rode. They were rough but I liked it haha.

Fair enough then, but who knows how long I'm going to keep this car and I feel it'd be a lot easier to sell some coils compared to a bag set or a car with a bag set where I live. That and coilovers are cheaper so low sooner I'd definitely put them back on... Lows is an addiction... Hahaha that sucks that are your selling and buying didn't work out... Soon enough you'll get your bags!
