w00h00!

My coilovers are gonna be here on wednesday or thursday, so I'm pretty excited thumbsup. I'm gonna get them installed on saturday and I'll try to get some pics asap. It's gonna feel so good not having those huge wheel gaps, I hate them angry. I'm gonna try to get them paid off by Christmas, January at the latest, so if any one has a black '03 front bumper that they wanna get rid off around that time, email me. I'm gonna go with the Extremor front lip, side skirts, and rear bumper. Then Extremor Carbon Fiber Hood and Carbon Fiber spoiler, as you can see, I've got a whole jdm theme going. My wallet's feeling pretty light right now wink, wheels, tires, exhaust, coilovers, and strut tower add up to a little over $4,500 in nine months.

I also want to paint/powder coat the two end plates on my strut tower, what do you guys think would look good with black? And is it better to paint or powder coat them because I want something that's going to look really nice and last a really long time.

congrats my friend, as for the srtut bar what kind? if i had one i'd repaint it flat black like a primer color. but powder coating it would last a lot longer, but is more money, so it's up to you.

If you can afford it, powdercoat them.

They're Tanabe coilovers and I opted for the front pillow mount, and the strut tower is by Tanabe too, plus I hear that they're working on some sway bars, too thumbsup. The wheels are 18" 5Zigen F-15 and I guess I'll powder coat the end plates. It'll last longer and probably look better. Thx for the for all the info/comments and I'll definetely post some pics. Now that I think about it, I should get some before and after pics wink.
