    I'd like your opinion on what you would change/clean/paint/modify in this picture?

    I have Bilstein struts and some BBK springs to install and the brake swap will have to wait just a bit longer.

    Seeing you have new struts and springs ....the calipers, brackets brake line brackets could use a cleaning and quickie paint job to hold ya over till you upgrade. Pull the fender liner and give it a new coat of black paint. Yank the rotors and clean and paint the hats while there off clean and paint the spindles. You can also clean the frame rail up while the fender wells are out

    That sounds like a plan!! Do you think painting the frame rail and inner-strut tower black as well would contrast well against my silver wheels?

    Pay no attention to the exterior "paint" because that's changing as soon as we get some consistant 60* weather.

    Opal is on point Josef

    As for the inner strut tower I'm not sure you would notice it much from a distance but up close you might. My vote is since your already painting shit under there go ahead and do that too.

    Not sure what color you plan on painting the car but I would look to keep the frame rails body color . Either the current crystal or whatever you plan for the rest of the car.

    Ok, thanks! It will be a white but probably not crystal white.

    Lower it to the point where none of that is even visible.


    Some rubber undercoating and a brush/soap mixture will also do wonders.
