spent yesterday cleaning up the suspension arms now the big question of the day is what color to paint them.
red or black? the member is black and the car is red.
you reckon red would look stupid?
or paint them this black http://hadagutfull.n...

red with black springs, keep the colours contrasting, looks better and more noticable.

WRONG! on 2 counts.

It doesn't, generally, last very well and looks like crap when it starts to rust.

and

It is illegal and DANGEROUS to chrome plate suspension parts as it MAY make the metal relatively brittle.

Powder coating is the best option, check out Front end I've just put together. All powder coated and zinc plated http://gallery.oldho...

I thought after chroming they put it in an oven for a few ours too release all the hydrogen?? I think thats what my chrome plater said, then they send it away to get tested and if they're happy you can have it back.
