ANTI ROLL BAR SPRAYING RED

Wanted the back suspension to look like the S203 like in the video I posted recently so here it goes took A/B bar off the car might need some WD40 to penetrate the bolts they hard to get off due to years of dirt. Had the car jacked up under diff with plywood between diff and jack and the front wheels were chocked and axle stands on each side of back of car ALWAYS use axle stands that can take the weight of your car. Washed down the bar first then used Wet n Dry or Sandpaper and got some rust off and also sandpaper I used and it will give the paint grip to stick to the bar to didnt use any primer as used this spray paint before and once the stock paint farly good on the Bar the Paint will stick then. Good idea to mark the A/B bar bushes to mark their spot when you take them off I used masking tape to mark the location, then sprayed 3coats of spraypaint. Sprayed it hanging off the washing line good idea gave it 2hours with sun drying it. Put her back on and here it is might be a good idea to have a second person to hold bar under car for ya, they a bit of weight in it and awkward for 1person.............
