Awesome! Will look great once it's all on. The hard part is waiting for winter to be over.

Wiped down, cleaned with soap, deep cleaned the back with heavy cleaner, rinsed, dried. Here they sit.

Heading out Monday to get the bends looked at and opinions on how to to about this process. I may just have the guy paint them if the price is right. I'm not sure yet, I have to pick his brain still.

They don't look bad. Curb rash is bad on a couple. If I go the powder coating route, I can't use jb weld, something about charges, someone elaborate please?

The last picture the paint isn't chipped, it's actually pitted a little.

Going to put 205-45-17 on these guys when the time comes way down the road. Then have dedicated snow tires on the stock 15's.

Thanksgiving Break
-strut mounts
-fuel filter
-maybe dip the roof.

I'm nervous about doing the mounts.

I finally did something that was actually build worthy. And I am proud of myself for accomplishing this, as little to some as it is.

I am halfway to replacing my strut mounts. It is only 5 bolts to take out the strut and spring.
SPIinDisguise' SPI Build Thread (Ecoboost Swapped)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1416970453.704410.jpgSPIinDisguise' SPI Build Thread (Ecoboost Swapped)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1416970491.383642.jpgSPIinDisguise' SPI Build Thread (Ecoboost Swapped)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1416970509.712329.jpgSPIinDisguise' SPI Build Thread (Ecoboost Swapped)-imageuploadedbytapatalk1416970529.198043.jpg
Got them all cleaned up.

So I don't really know if the strut mounts are bad. I looked close at the spring and noticed they were scraping the paint off and the "holder" is dented it. Wierd thing is, they are on the same exact spot on each of them. Very odd.

Changed my oil, put my new fumoto oil plug in. It was a little tight on the top, scraped a little. But did work after first turn. See if it leaks in the morning.
