You could easily make an e30 lsx daily drivable with AC, Power everything, etc. VAC makes pretty much everything you would need in a kit.

My front helper springs were just delivered so I can finally finish up installing the front suspension and mount the canisters, will be doing that today after work. Still have so much to do.

No swain tech? That seems to be the only ceramic coating with any legitimacy.

Thats definitely one of the cleaner wraps though, some peoples end up looking ghetto.


ALSO equal length?

I high temp them and wrap them. I have no legitimacy issues. The trick to a nice wrap is having many sets of hands. I was lucky to have another set, 3 people is best! Yes EDIT: Swain coating would have took too long.
