Default Hausser Lowering Springs

Back in the good old 80's there was a company who thought it be fun to tune the cool new volvo 700 cars.

Among known bodykit they made lowering springs.. i just bought a used set of a Ex Hausser owner.. here's a pic of them.. the original colours where blue and green.. keep them oldskool 80's colours or paint them red or black?

here's a pic of them.. i already cleaned one spring of that nasty rust and ready for the antirust and paint

why is that one front spring so much longer than the other? or is it an optical illusion?

Powder coat is the only way to go when you want long lasting no rust results. Most places will sandblast before coating, and keep it mellow unless your car color is something that matches.

Doesn't painting/powdercoating affect the spring rate (if only ever so minutely)...

I would paint them baby blue, with red and yellow polka dots........ only because you can.... and SHOULD.

When do you install them? You've spent long enough painting them.
