Love it! Although I'm just a fan of your car in general.

Scored these on Yahoo auction for a nice price. Cusco 22mm sways. They had some surface rust, so I sanded them down to put a VHT Anodized coating on. This is the primer coat, blue will go on after curing is done.

Nice!
Sways make the most noticeable improvement in my opinion by far

They definitely do. I swapped in 1" sways on my Z31 300ZX and the stability in the corners was improved a whole lot.

I've already got the Kartboy links, so these should be pretty stiff.

4 days until the next coat!

Sprayed on the color coat.
Let's see how it finishes in a week's time. Should be alright.

Thanks!
That's what's recommended on the can. The primer coat also cured for a week.

I might throw a clear coat on it for a little extra protection. I've got a can of it laying around.

I just checked on the paint yesterday. Looks real nice. No sags or runs anywhere.

Waiting for the fronts to come in, but now the rear sway bar will fit with no problem.

Laid down some concrete, no more scrapey scrapey when I don't hug the edge of my driveway. I'll probably lay down another layer in during my spring holiday.

damn that's so close to scraping!

got a question for ya, I just picked up some V7 wheels (they look so good on your bug, I decided to get a set for mine!), is the inside dish portion of yours holding up paint wise?

The face of my wheels (spokes wise) the paint looks pretty decent for them being used wheels, but the barrels look like they've been blasted with road salt and the finish is pretty gnarly. Do yours look like that too?

It is pretty close haha
But it works!

Regarding the barrels on the wheels, mine just have the usual dirtiness you get from brake dust. Last time I checked, they were doing good.
You got a photo to throw my way?
I don't mind if you post it here or just give an external link.

The fronts finally came in.



Going to install these plus the sways next weekend and just enjoy driving for the rest of the year.

Also, this wheel cleaner is sooo nice. Best I've ever used.
