yes it is indeed. and today while driving im positive that my exhaust sounds louder now , well inside . and i like it actually. just some louder noise comes from rear after 60km/h speed, an slower too. think my side rear cv axle need to be changed as it had that rubber broken in winter so for some time im driving with broken axle boot on rear. because it was touching exhaust tube when i was stuck in mud and tried to get out . thats very bad place for exhaust pipe to be its just couple cm gap between it and that axle boot.
then after i changed my front speakers i was leaving that plastic frame on both sides but on passenger side i removed it some time ago and i didint thought it could touch window when it goes down, so today begore driving to cinema i opened passenger window and heard some noise there , then slide it up and that speaker no longer working. guess wires comes off . will be redoing it again guess i need to use that plastic frame that oem speaker was in. , mine was not separate was all frame and speaker as one, so i broke speaker to parts and cut some stuff to have that frame part intact for me.

later day fixed that speaker , so now window wont hit it .

dont feel any more exhaust smeel inside car with that much cut so will just leave it as it is. and i like more pronounce rumble now inside car

changed driver side rear CV axle . was broken rubber boot. found one last used spare i had from last year


that exhaust tube just touches that rubber on full drop. and if car would drop on exhaust it would push it against that cv axle and brake that rubber as happened for me.
hi lift was not used because its still not done for sides and sides needs to be redone first. and its dangerous too. it can lift car and then later smash to door or worse case window. i got some scratches when i tried last time hi lift on side. but that was in garage on flat surface. now i was working on kinda muddy soft grass, so that hi lift would need extra large pad to work on this kinda surface.
as for exhaust still thinking how else it could go there. not more space there for it and if you hang it lower it become just worse on trails. but thats only problem on full drop or when your car hang on middle. or some large stone would push it up , but as i dont live in stone country yet that's not bothers me

tried diy mudflaps on rear. on front they wont fit because its so small gap when i turn wheel it wouldnt fit there on top on those plastic covers there. so front strut spacer need to be redone for camber and caster offset so wheel would go just slightly to front.
but in rear there is no problem to just hang it part on bumper side part just drill into body . i was drilling new holes on bumper side its strong enough there to hold it on bolts.


didnt had time for better pics from rear and such , later i will make more pics. i like it how it looks. it changes look of all car really.
2 larger one are bolts as those

another one is simple screw into plastic and those inside arch are those , they went into metal.


and i thought why cut some form there if you can just put there square peace as all , why bother with any cut. that way it covers more there.

Mudflaps from other angles. Looks good still plenty space . did 600km trip yesterday so on high speeds they hold ok too. Didint tested them on deep mud yet but on wet road now all dirt goed on mudflaps and not on bumper or inside it as before. Thats what i needed and it works.

They soft rubber but strong so hopefully wont brake even if would be catch on tire going in reverse. Didint needed them too long just long enough to cover

its that time when your rims / tires change all look of car , mudflaps do that too. now that rear of car looks diff already. even if put wheels on spacers 25mm those mud flaps should still cover them. or i just redo them . its simple as i make very small holes just for bolt to go trough not more.
p.s. now postimg.org locked so no more pics upload there. omg i hate that , first i used photobucket , that got screwed , then imgur, that locked from my pc , and now this ... :/
wait so imgur works again..


was working on hi lift adapter to lift front both sides as well as redone lift points in front. now all is much better and works good. smaller tube goes into large tube and they hold tight not letting hi lift move front or to sides. tested when car was on little hill and no prob lift front wheel.
but pics are large from imgur now they dont fit on screen here. on other forums thats not problem thou.

Loud sound as jet plane starts at 60km/h and then goes louder and louder. At 120km/h even very loud music wont help. And sounds from rear. Guess wheel bearing is gone as i understood from reading about that. Just not sure which side. Sounds like from driver side but cant be sure. First i thought maybe tires but its sounds even like more metalic kinda sound. And thats same side that i allready changed couple yrs ago. Guess cheap aftermarket bearings not hold very long. Good thing that i can buy all in one and change it myself. Bad thing that this way its cost more. Could buy 2 bearings as separate and let specialists change it then. But what if they will do bad job. Who knows.
With that loud sound did trip to Baltic sea. About 250km one way.


If anyone interested where is that sea im going to often its there. And my home is icon too.

Shame that all those areas there are protected and you can only walk to sea, no cars allowed anywhere near sea , not like australia where you just drive to the beach and camp if you like near water. That would be amazing.

Well with larger wind i saw people do kitesurfing there.
But in summer hot days that beach becomes not so nice to be. People from all country go to one beach it can become croudy

I dont like that kinda place so i look where or when is less people there
And its funny like if its bad weather beach is empty if sun comes up bammm instant full beach . imagine all that urine from all those people in water .
