Robert from EPT

Hey, I'm Robert. I'm from El Paso, TX. I have my own small powder coating business...very small...but anyway, I have a 1990 Civic sedan LX. I swapped out the suspension, threw some 14" MR-5's on with some Falken rubber, and soon I'll be doing an engine swap. For now though, it's just the stock driveline with the usual slow as hell slushbox.

This is when I finally got to work on the MR-5's. They were in my storage for roughly 4 years before I got the time. I separated the spokes from the barrels and then powder coated the spokes gloss black.



I had the lips polished....



And the finished product....



And these are the real deal...

Wheels came out nice.  What'd you use for the rear brakes?

....

What do you mean what did I use?

parts? maybe? rta off a ???
4dred6

hey dude what do you use for stripping the paint off the parts? media blaster? or just a strong paint remover?
90EF2

I used DA brakes all around with ES RTA bushings and steel braided lines all around.

For powder coating I use both. If I can get it off with paint stripper, I'll use that. I try to stay away from media blasting since it tends to erode aluminum. If it has corrosion, I'll blast it.
