Steal or aluminum? Or a mix?

Installed the new trunk arms I got on eBay. The body shop used a torch and bent the old ones back close. Well these unbent ones made a huhe difference and now there is no wierd panel gap and crappy trunk alignment. Its difficult to get the cross hatching bars lined up to put tension on the arms though

The camber kit gave me a half inch lift, I think I installed them upside down? Now the stock wheels sit flush with the fender

Anyways the interior is torn apart still. Cleaning everything since I had to remove the back window trim to get to the trunk arm bolts

That question was to you. I am curious, are your ebay camber arms for the rear steel, aluminum or a mix of both?
I have been trying to see if anyone makes all steel ones. Seems even the expensive skunk2 junk is aluminum and they bind up badly or so I've heard.

Updated my ghetto floor mat fix today. I had originally used wire with crimp on ring terminals, but the force my feet put on the mat tore the cable out of the crimps heh. So I bought some sash chain, a bolt and a wingnut. That bitch isn't coming out now, lol

I think the center blue section is aluminum. I'll double check, but for $19 shipped I'm not too worried about abusing them.

D16 alternator on B20 using R18 air box mount (or any short 2 hole bracket). This specific bracket is not flat so I used a nut as a spacer and the other hole is a welded m6 nut so I used a fender bolt to help keep the tension. We'll see how it works.

I saw a post recently that said it couldn't be done so I decided to take the risk of not having a working alternator since I didn't look for my gsr. Fortunately I was able to figure something out using OEM parts pretty quickly.

anything is possible, you just have to be creative but also understand that it might not end up the way you thought it would.

Yes the next challenge will be retaining power steering without swapping any hoses. I haven't researched that much as I never cared for it but it's worked quite well.

D16Y8 p/s pump bolted right up to B20Z2 brackets. Just needs a longer belt.

Nice!

Repaired engine harness and wrapped it with the heat resistant tape. Let see if it works.

Need to replace brake pads....

Would you mind posting up some night pictures showing the light output?
