    I had another batch of items go to the blaster. All of my remaining bolts etc and some brackets/arms.I'm debating on what I want zinc plated and what I want powdercoated... I almost wish I wouldn't have spent the money powdercoating some things, and plated them instead. For instance, I don't...

    I wrapped up all the organizing. I'm a little frustrated with how many different bolts are on this thing.I had to combine a Lot of similar bolts just for the sake of not having 7 of these trays. Out of all of those bolts I have (1) grade 10 bolt for example. Crazy.I have another batch going...

    You're not bombing! All good information to have. You're looking at all the suspension bushings in red FYI.I bought the Torque Solution rear poly subframe bushings and the volk solid front subframe bushings. I only bought the solid because they do not offer poly replacement subframe bushings...

    That whole bucket of bolts/brackets. Which is basically every single bumper/body part bolt, as well as every bolt under the car, was $80 to blast. And the plating price isn't confirmed yet, but with zinc plating, you can "batch plate" instead of the typical hooking a wire to each part and...
