so i got bored and decided, what the hell, im going to remove my brake stuff and repaint them. decided to go with black hub and brakets, and red calipers.
so i did and heres a few pics of what good weather has allowed.
ooh shiny black hubs.
and ugh not so clean calipers.
and some really RED calipers....
but then i got carried away and took the fenders and headlights out
and even the bumper fell subject to be removed... going to install some new struts i guess and new tie rods and ball joints tomorrow.
not sure if while its down rather im going to just do my turbo swap like i've wanted. guess now is as good a time as any huh?

yeah it has all new bushings and solid mounts done before. trying to get stock fenders and i will most likely get the metal z3 inserts back in. my fiberglass ones are destroyed, never let a woman drive a performance car.

well heres what happens when i get sunshine again. got some time and started to reinstall the brake components. put new guide pins and boots in all 4 calipers, new front pads. going to most likely put stock neon springs back in for a while.
driver rear put back in and ready to go......
and so is the pass rear.
ohhh new tie rods and ball joints.
ended up just removing the whole control arm to install new ball joints. thank god for my buddies new 20 ton press.... harbor frieght rules!
got the pass front put back in, looks nice now. got bored and chose a new wheel to put on my car seeing as i had them around.
came off my buddies car, i traded him a set of not so great looking 17's for these babies.
close ups of fronts and rears, cant see calipers very well here, but when the srt rims go back on i bet it'll be way better.
