I don't see any cutouts in there.

My wife's a hairdresser as well...you need to get her one of those gel mats to stand on. That'll score you some real brownie points.

I threw the old one away that you can see was on the carpet. lol

She's been on my ass to get the carpet out of the salon rooms. HORRIBLE to have carpet in salon settings.

I just noticed you painted the drain PVC black. That's another mod.

Ok, I'm buying wheels here very soon. So I"m gonna wait for the cut-outs till I get my wheels because the car will get even lower when I do my wheels. Just want to make sure I keep the cut-out motors high enough if they end up a low point.

Wheel search is down to Vossen and Forgeline.

nice... but if the cutouts are the low point, they're the low point (which they shouldn't be - motors don't like getting bumped around). the rest of your undercarriage ain't gonna drop lower in some other place when you swap wheels.

as for the ride height, your tire size is what'll determine if the car goes up or down. heck... the little 265s on my truck with my 16" wheels would make your car sit much higher (assuming we cut the fenderwells to fit)... unless you've already thought of that & decided on a tire size that's overall heights are lower than the ones you have now.

Well, if I were to be limited on safe room and yet still want to do cutouts, I'd be willing to make them the low point if it were barely and depending on where underneath they ended up.

I'm looking are 20x10.5 forgelines with 305s all the way around.

If I go 30% sidewall then it'll be lower than it is now. If I go 35% sidewall it will be about the same.

Are you figuring in any wheel well gap you'll want to get rid of as well? That means lower still.

305/35-20 = 28.4" tall, 10.0-10.5 wheel, don't know what the 30s would be. OEM height 20s is 28.7"
