    Hint of things to come!
    I bought these off a cutter a cutter to go on my space grey 92,thats long gone so i still have them ready to go on this 92 ,theyre 6 pot brembo's with 4 pot rears and 380mm discs all round. they were painted white which wasnt to my taste but ive repainted them space grey about 5 months ago which were to match the horror of a space grey 92 that i had for 3 months!

    [​IMG]

    rubbed down and primed in the paint booth!

    Base colour on , i used a met grey 1k aerosol , then a 2k lacquer which i could apply a hydraulic fluid resistant 2k lacquer over the top which will harden up nicely


    [​IMG]


    started fitting the fronts today ,along with some eibachs!

    [​IMG]


    shaved mounts and e36 m3 front bumpstops

    [​IMG]


    i never remove the strut fully when fitting springs ,i just disconnect the top mount nut and lower it down on a jack until the spring is free and refit new spring, easy when you know how!

    rears tomorrow!

    Great work and attention to detail. Love threads like this. How to make a used car look as if it's straight out the factory.

    Superb effort. Well done.

    yeah i love the colour too. unless you own the colour it just looks grey but under different light conditions you can see lilac/purple hues and also a bronze tinge too.
