Thoughts on ez-lip? I'm curious how they'd look on the Mk3

Spoiler is officially installed, and they washed my car for me. The installer was amused by my stickers.

might I suggest some high temperature flat black paint on the brake drums. makes them disappear visually and helps prevent rust. unless you want them to be seen lol

Lately, they've been irritating me, and I've considered it lol. They have some rust already anyways

mine were absolutely caked in rust (original drums from 2001 lol), but a wire wheel attachment took care of most of it in an hour or two. I couldn't get 100% of it off but even so, the paint has stuck fine. 1 can was enough for several coats on each. yours are basically brand new so it'd turn out even nicer. decent little Sunday project all in all

tint looks good BTW, always thought you needed it lol

I'm just weary of taking the lug nuts off, I've stripped them before, and I just don't wanna deal with that again lol.

Yeah, I figured I might as well keep some heat out since I'll be parking outside more and more once school starts and stuff.
