Restoring the springs

I'll skip some chapters of dismantling the car.

I said the car should become "better than new" I'll show you what I mean.

Front spring as they were.

I got all parts sandblasted by my own. I used a quite coarse aluminum oxide to blast rust and old paintings away.

After blasting I got them powder coated in RAL 9005 (black with silk gloss). Now they will last for ages! [img]http://www.thelotusforums.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/default/bounce.gif[/img]

For the marking stripes I used a simple brush and enamel colours.

They look as if they were made this morning!
