Very nice.

Change those yellow side markers to black and it will be perfect!

I see you had one of the struts unbolted from the top, did you replace the struts? I purchased new Konis. the fronts are next, it appears to be straight forward, all cars I have had in the past had shocks, never changed a strut. it looks like you can sake the strut out without a spring compressor, but you need one to take the strut apart?

And keep up the good work, working on a car will keep you out of trouble too,

I tried.... They allocate something like 2000 parking spots to seniors, 1000 to juniors, 500 to sophomores and none to freshmen. My only way is to find someone that got a parking pass and buy it off of them.... or shank them and take it...

They aren't powdercoted, I wanted to do that but I don't have a powdercoating gun so sand blasted the rims and then I used Dupont Imron Polyurethane Enamel which is really thick and durable. Turned out great.

I did unbolt the strut and I did need a spring compressor to take it out and to get the springs off. It didnt take that long but the hardest part was getting the spring compressor off after I got everything back together. Now that I did it once I could do it in half the time it took me.
