Long weekend projects...

Hey folks looking forward to the long weekend hoping to get my new wheel spacers installed and the brake caliper covers.
I'm going to paint the wheel hubs black while I'm there as well.

here's a pic




Took a while to get the spacers as there custom made to order but they look and feel like real nice quality parts.

So what are you all doing this weekend ???

Looks fun. Shouldn't take too much of the weekend.


Mike, clean out? .... Not just a reg cleaning? Something going on?

Idiot drivers are everywhere all the time. No avoiding them. ;(

I was just going to paint the calipers but after seeing these I though I would save some elbow grease.

I put those caliper covers on my truck last year . They still look great . The EBC brake rotors were the icing on the cake. No project this weekend just going to do some day trips on the Virago ...

Well after a few hours and some cold wobbly pops the job is done.
Painted the hubs black along with the spacers and installed the caliper covers.

Tires don't rub on the upper control arm any longer but they did slightly rub the front lower plastic piece and the back part of the inner fender flare. Not that Big of a deal as I just trimmed back those pieces.

here a few before and after pic's

BEFORE





AFTER




Hope your all enjoying the weekend !!
