finally got this thing all welded up. it took some creative ebaying to afford it but it should be a very solid unit. i know its overkill for what the car is capable of now but i assure you its gonna get faster Twisted Evil

Nice work ! Paint it black and be done with it. The clear really isn't made to have good adhesion to bare metal.

Still that was a masterful job in assembling the rear end (love the caliper mounting pads), wonder if you can get powder coat in clear?

Paint it black, but something to really screw with people would be to get a aluminum rear cover for a 12 bolt or 8.8 and trim it to fit over the back brace so it looks functional. Tap the holes and have bolts look like they are holding it on too. It would be a nice detail piece against the black housing. Sorry to add something else to think about. Clay

I think both would look really great but I said black. If you still can't make up your mind, give it bumble-bee stripes. haha Laughing

im kinda wondering that myself. yellow was actually my first choice, just to be different, but (as dawg said) it will need constant cleaning. the last thing i want to do is spend my spare time wiping my rearend Shocked Embarassed .
