You used to always say 4 posts were stupid because you can't do much work with them (suspension)

They are stupid but the one I'm buying has an attachment that elevates the car above the tracks allowing you to be able to do anything that you can do on a two post. The picture I attached is one of them, I would need two.

That sucks dude! Definitely a stop light camera at that one though. It always flashes at people turning right on red off the interstate.

I checked yesterday after work and there wasnt anything but a camera (no flash type) just a traffic cam. Also I think the intersection you are thinking of might be the one right before this one... I always go right on red off the interstate though...

Sooooo I kinda want to paint my stoptech calipers red. Ideally I would take them apart and send them off to be powdercoated but I would want to rebuild them while I did that. Thing is these calipers were just rebuilt so that is not needed.

Thoughts?

The other issue is that I'm going to plasti dip my wheels red, will red wheels and red calipers look good together? Maybe do silver to match the car? Silver behind the red wheels would look good I think. Help me out fellas.

I would definately send those bad boys off to get powder coated... No reason not to if you are gonna take the time to paint them?? Just wait till the off season and send them off for powder coating. As far as the wheels... just do something WILD. If you plasti-dip you might as well. If not that spend a bit and get a "professional" style paint gun...you already have the air compressor and hose and paint them.
