    Wanted to try some different springs but, they were a bit ropey

    Looking at different suspension options, new dampers and springs but wanted to experiment 1st. Bought these 2nd hand very cheap, well you can see why they were cheap!

    They needed a bit of a makeover and Apex yellow is not in my plans.

    They were fine how they were. They are springs, not rims. The only people who will see this is your and maybe the guy who mounts your next set if tires.

    Nicely done, if I had the resources I would have done the same... Even if I only saw them once before putting them in the car.

    I see my springs all the time, but that's cuz I swap out rims a lot for the drag strip. Nothing wrong with pretty springs
