The paint may contaminate them or burn off, you'll find out soon enough.

Looks nice though.
I'll have to assume that you have more experience with this as I have never painted my brakes before.... Maybe I should paint them?

yea it cost me 12 bucks and a trip to lowes. also those rotors and brakes are being changed soon. but yes it was lazy, although its all done with spray can bed liner (5 layers) i think i should hold up well, i sanded and primed it fairly good i think it should last

Re did the rear diff breather line. It kept coming undone when I flexed. Coiled the tune up top and attached a throttle spring so that it can pull down on flex and pull back up upon leveling. Also put a fuel filter on it above the gas tank with the factory breather cap on it. If it needs to go higher, it can. Bit I figure if my trunk has water coming in, I've got bigger problems

I removed the poly bushings from my rear swaybar links and greased them. Removed the stock links that were clunking from worn sleeves and installed the poly Zone links...again. I went from a squeek to a clunk to a quiet rear suspension for awhile.

Hard to tell, but I've been working on installing my OME lift. Got stopped when I found some rust under the front coil isolators. Ground it down, rustoleum is drying for now... To be continued...

Why add another fuel filter? Why not replace the factory one? You can actually see it in that second pic. The round gray thing with the stainless steal starp, has to lines going into it on one side 1 line coming out. Just wonderin


Edit: misunderstanding, thought you put another fuel filter in the line, not add a filter to the breather tube. but why put a filter on the breather tube?

I put the filter on the breather hose to just keep solids out. All the threads I searched showed guys pitting a fuel filter on the end of their breather tubes when they extended them
