Shocks and Springs

The coilovers I am using for my car are the following:

Damping has a single adjustment knob that varies bound/rebound at the same time.  Damping data excerpt:

Headlights

Headlight installation – 7 in diameter dietz style headlights from summit racing. Cost $50 for a pair. Mounted via a 1×1 square tube welded to the top of the chassis and cantilevered out past the nose cone. Had to check for clearance between the nosecone and full motion of the wheels and fenders.
