    What is it about these cars? They get in your blood and you can't get it out. My wife has been after me for a long time to get rid of mine but I can't do it. It looks great and runs great. Why sell it???

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    ^ thanks.. all the times learning at the pico shop paid off and i was able to do something on my own for once

    so i painted my rear sway bar what i thought was gloss black.... and it turns out i got 'charleston green' which comes in a can with a black cap, but it has a sticker with dark writing on it that says 'charelston green' lol.. it looks like it belongs on a forrest ranger's car now as i was painting it i was like hmm it looks kinda green, maybe it'll turn black as it dries.. but it only got greener

    That's the guy I bought my JDM corners off of. He's a good seller, no doubt.

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    lol so I went out side to pull off my strut bar to paint.. and that shit wasn't coming off for nobody It was installed at the same time as the shocks and it['s a good thing cause the bolts don't allow enough travel for it to go around the 3 little prongs.. it's only coming off if the shock bolts are lowered below the bar... so i guess i won't be painting that any time soon

    Mask off everything else around it (like a certain someone on the forum that I wont name) and paint it on the car.

    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    yeah i dont like the idea of using a rattle can anywhere near my car really if i jack up the car with the shock tower unscrewed will the bolts lower? i might be able to do it that way and it's a lot faster than masking my whole engine bay + hood lol
