      Just picked up a new camera, so here are a couple quick new snaps. I added the new oem chrome strips upper and lower in the front, and a new rear upper. The rear lower is the one that was on the car when I bought it and is still in decent enough shape. I also, bought a second set of tails from the junkyard and make my own all reds using testors candy apple red and clear paint from a local hobby store. There was plenty of wetsanding, masking and buffing involved to get them to look this haha.

      I ordered em from ecs, there is a thread a few pages back about it. But here is the information you need. I was told you can use the lower front in the rear, so I ordered two. Although I didn't even bother installing that one on my car as that was the only decent chrome strip on the car haha. So, I just put that strip on the shelf for another day.

      http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/176853951/ES294295/ -upper front
      http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/176853951/ES294296/ -lower front

      http://www.ecstuning.com/Search/176853951l/ES294297/ -upper rear
      176853951M - lower rear is NLA

      Spent a good chunk of the afternoon messing around with this, my roommates '77 Datsun 280z. He got it with the head and just about everything else sitting in the trunk

      I love the Westy, and the wheels are super clean. Shout out from Newberg OR too, its always good to see another Oregonian on the boards.

      Thanks. Have you made it out to any gtg's? If not, you definitely should.. especially when the weather gets nicer!

      Not yet, I just bought my car about 2 weeks ago and it was in need of some TLC. I'm trying to get her ready for the Crosshaul Cruise in May

      They are decent. I definitely am glad I spent the extra $40 or so over racelands or rokkors I think they are noticeably better. One friend who has racelands after riding in my car numerous times said he was thinking about "upgrading" to ultimos hahaha. That being said they obviously dont ride as good as some other coilovers that cost 2x-4x as much.
