Cool Winter projects 2006-2007 (picture update!)

Just wanted to share my winter projects with you, both for inspiration and also to make some documentation of my projects...

1: Repaint rims.
2: Change CV boots.
3: Paint calipers red (change rears to four pistons)
4: Paint rear deck lid black.
5: Change bearing in A/C compressor.
6: Replace bulbs in instrumentation with blue LED's.
7: Replace M030 springs with red H&R.

Are you having the wheels done professionally?

No all is DIY.
Especially since the wheels could get smashed again on the first track day like last year ;-)

Any week now I'll be dropping my wheels off to get redone (powder coated). They're charging me $149 per wheel. Included in that they will mount my tires.

I'm going flat or satin black, I hope it's not a mistake.

I almost decided to paint them black as well, but then my car would be all black in black and I wasn't sure if it was to much, please post pics when you get them back on the car, I might have to reconsider
I actually had to buy the WŘrth silber paint from UK, so that was another reason for chosing another color (bought 3 cans just in case)

I am thinking about getting the Hollow spoke twist Powder coated. Will that hold up as good or better then paint? Also is $149 a good reference number for possible cost?

Default Picture update

Just thought I would show some pictures of the final results.
Sorry for the unclean car, but it has been parked in a garage for 4 month now.

Nice work, your wheels look great. Do the 4 piston calipers bolt right up to the rear of the early 964s or do you use some type of adapter?
