I painted this set myself just to see. If it lasts good, if not I will have them powder coated. I don't remember where I got the decals from, sorry.

Attempted to install the Whiteline Roll-Center & Bump-Steer Kit, but one of the stock ball joint nuts gets stuck/binds onto the bolt and spins the whole joint, instead of loosening itself. I ran out of daylight, so I might just have to use a cut-off wheel on it tomorrow. Seems like it might be a 2-person job getting the ball joint to seat back on the control arm, as well. Needed a third hand to swing the hub back into place while i pulled the control arm down. Realllly wasn't planning on spending this much time on this project.
Also found a fun surprise, which must have just happened this weekend - my right inner CV boot is completely torn open and spewing grease all over the place. Looks like I'm adding a new axle & boot onto my enormous to-do list this week.

I had bought the F/R COBB sway bars for really cheap. The paint on them was pretty bad, but the bars themselves are fine. I know you can't really see the bar, but for a little at the rear. Plus my car is lowered and has a full rear diffuser. But, I wanted them to look new anyways.

I didn't like the kinda baby blue color they were. I ended up painting them Royal Blue with some pearl. Rustoleum Primer to prevent rusting. I did my own stencil and did COBB in silver (to match my PSM), and put some clear coats on it. I also painted the brackets "Cast Aluminum" for the heck of it. They were Black.
