Background info here. TL;DR...pulling apart entire suspension and brakes on my '93 Volvo 945 turbo, fitting all new bushings, springs, struts, and brakelines, rebuilding calipers, and powdercoating everything semi-gloss black.

So, I got everything off the car. Everything has been sandblasted clean. I was able to get all bushings pressed out thanks to my new 12-ton floor press, and last night I got final seized slide pin from front caliper bracket and seized piston out of rear caliper removed.

I'm hoping to do some final clean-up and prep to drop all parts off for powdercoating by tomorrow!

I also discovered the torque rods from the rear axle are aluminum. I'm debating on what to do with them. I like the bare aluminum look, so I don't want to powdercoat black with rest of the suspension. I'm wondering if I can do a clear-coat powder coat or if a rattle can of clear coat would be good enough. What do you think Opponauts?
