    didnt turn out too bad. I bead blasted and painted the arms and springs then made my own aluminum exhaust heat shields. I also cut some large holes in them for access to the shock adjusters.

    the passenger rear hub is off to replace a bent rotor. Its been ordered for 4 weeks now. And those damn hubs are on with blue loctite, i had to tap it off the whole way. It will go back on with a little neverseize for easier removal next time.

    next up is the front suspension.

    Seems like you have done a pretty good job with your rear suspension and I did the same and end up with replacing the suspension.

    removed the front suspension this weekend and bead blasted all of it. Then hit it with some white paint. Also did the outer rings of my led headlights. I also made some inner splash guards out of aluminum with some mesh for more airflow.

    i still need to paint my front bumper and install it.

    Looks good! Are you going to paint or change your plastics?

    I am going to order the 2014 white plastics and wrap the black panels white. Then powdercoat the wheels red.
