    Decided to clean up the Camber Arms. Gonna spray them either gold, or red. What you guys think?

    After cleaning with a wire brush and CLR:

    Squiggy is like the universal organ donor. His ride lives on in yet another users car. Gold or red would prob both look good on the camber arms. I recall Godspeed and skunk2 having a gold-ish color camber arm. Red would also look good with black. You could always paint your calipers the same color to match (if you can find the same color in a high heat paint).

    Haha right! The spirit lives!!

    That's what I was going after. I'd been keeping an eye out for some of the SK2 in gold, but couldn't pass up these.

    The gold I'm thinking of is basically the color of the plank that the arms are sitting on. I disassembled one of our box fans to clean it, and ended up sanding off some rust and figured I may as well spray it to keep the rust from coming back.

    This is the color gold I was considering.

    Honestly, didn't seem overprotected to me! It made up for the last package I got. Loose H&R springs in a paper box. No padding. Spring sticking through the side of the box. I ship a good amount of stuff and really pride myself on how well it's packaged. I even do the whole, "shake the box and if the item moves, add more"

    I'm not gonna screw up anything taking a wire wheel to the intake manifold and painting it with high temp paint, right?

    I have carbon steel wire wheels if it matters.

    Decided not to paint it. Don't wanna add a layer of insulation. Just cleaned it up with the wire wheel.
