Did you paint them or powdercoat them?

I REALLY want to get a pair powdercoated STi BBS Silver.

Powder coated them. I media blasted them and bought new seal, pins, and spring plates.

Hmm, not a bad idea.

So you have part numbers for all of those bits? You did fronts and rears, right?

I have access to a blast cabinet, so getting the gold off isn't tough, and I know the exact color I want. I just need to actually do it (and find out how much it'll cost...)

That looks pretty good!

I keep hoping I'll be daring enough one day to go the green/orange route. Orange brakes under lime/neon green wheels.

looks great. so you are sticking with a 5 speed even with a r180?
I would like dccd one day but going the R180 rear end, to me, is a much better alternative to the rear caliper adapter and brake shoe liner. The way I see it, you get an uprgraded rear diff plus it's already to go should I persue the 6 speed option.

Gold isn't my ideal colour of choice. I think that the orange would look good behind a gun metal colour or something a little darker.

that was my exact thinking when. I am in the process of doing my r180, 04sti hub/knuckle and ebrake swap now
