OME 884's on the way!

I ended up getting the 884's and will be getting them in the mail shortly...

I was debating on painting or powder coating them for a different look. Anybody suggest some ideas as to what way I should do it? Color? etc?

Thanks!!

Red.

I ordered the adjustable coilovers from ToyTec and I like the fact that the springs are red. However, I also ordered the TC UCAs - I wonder how the grey and blue UCAs will go with the red springs... Guess we'll see!

But, I vote RED for you.

Congrates!!!
Have them powdercoated. Its more durable, and I belive there are kits that allow you to do it at home.

Hmm that sounds interesting! I like the idea. How much do you think it could cost to get them done somewhere? Vs. buying this machine?

I dont know. It may be a little cheaper, but if you but the machine, imagine everything that you could powder coat! You could be the "In house TW Powder Coater".

FWIW, A buddy of mine bought one of those things and went on a powdercaoting spree. Wheels, parts, whatever.

Haha you have a good point there! I could do powdercoating for peeps to pay for the thing. Also did your friend buy this same one?

I just realized I would need a darn oven to bake them in afterwards and it specifically says to use a non food oven... Unless I can find someone locally that has an oven I could use lol.

Yea but can you bake it in the kitchen oven? Or would that be a health hazard?

Blah I will just leave them black... lol I don't want to have them chip and look crappy after a few hundred miles etc. Also if they start to show some rust after install is that ok? Or if that starts to happen should I take them off sand the rust and reclear coat them?

Nice! Lets just say they do since I live by the ocean and it happens... would I need to worry that it would get worse? Or is a little rust no biggy?

Also, do you think I will be pretty level or at least higher than my current 5100 2.5" setting without the top spacers?

Thanks!
