How'd they make that grill? Cause I really want to... It's about the only thing I could afford to do right now and it looks sweet. And what bumper is that?

Wow never have I wanted an 900 series car more than I do now.

One thing though... how do these guys lower their 95+ 900s? I thought the rears couldn't be lowered due to the leaf springs?

You cut the rear perch for the Nivomat and reweld it on lower. The nice thing is that, IMHO, the rear doesn't look that high at stock height with my 18 inch wheels. So, just by lowering the front an inch, it looks balanced and doesn't have that motorboat look. And 1 inch in the front really isn't changing the angle at which the car sits all that much at all.
