Looks good! :)

I had a similar attitude back in 2002 when I repainted my 944. Everywhere I went kept giving me quotes of $8-15k as soon as they looked at the car but none of them could tell my why...

Suspension refresh for '87 944: Am I missing anything?

The suspension in my 944 is getting pretty long in the tooth so I'm just going to go ahead and refresh everything so that I only have to pay for one alignment. ;)
