    Forgot to write that this is a multi-owner car ha. The way that it's written makes it seem like it was previously owned by one person. I have no idea why there was such a large gap in the maintenance records but all the way up to 50k, they were from the dealer.

    Thanks William. I'd be lying if I said I didn't use your maintenance thread as an example of how it should be written out... Haha

    Cleaned up my coilovers today and sprayed them down with Boeshield T-9

    Before



    After


    Just trying to avoid rusty threads up here in saltville

    Also swapped out the BC racing RSMs for some JTD RSMs

    Nothing was wrong with the BC RSMs, I just had some free time and the JTDs on hand.

    I like the double-ring locking on those coilovers. And thanks for answering the "why" question on the RSMs. Any benefit in the design, etc?
