Garage XTI hood struts.

This is a mod that should have been stock. I picked these up used and love them.

toss a little extra grease on them before each winter... it'll save them from the salt. Mine have a little surface rust on the piston shafts now from the last couple months after I washed everything off in Florida.

I found a guy locally who has an over so I could do a wrinkle finish on my custom airbox, tmic splitter and add a new color to the spt intake. I ordered Red and Black VHT wrinkle spray paint, and met with my newfound friend to use his 6 foot over to bake my parts.

After talking for 20 seconds, he makes the comment saying these are way too nice to take a chance with spray paint. I will powdercoat them for you So he did, and they look so awesome!

Photos

Hanging the parts awaiting powder.



Adding powder



Hanging them outside to help the ool down time



Better photos of the finish







And yes, He is a car guy. He will be doing my intake manifold wrinkle red at some point, as well as my wheels and brake calipers.
