    ^Thank ya

    Dr says I cant drive until my appointment on the 8th where they will "check my range of motion". It doesnt hurt to shift so i figure its within my range of motion. I took my car for a little drive around the neighborhood.

    I could feel MORE vibrations as soon as I started the car and when it reved/ drove. My friend says F it, let it rub. He says it will keep the motor from rocking, resulting in more RW horsepower and i figure immediate torque. maybe
    Is it bad that my front strut bar touches??? i personally dont like it touching, but just dont know if it will result in somethin bad or whatever.

    Anywho, heres the quick release. pretty happy. it moved the wheel juust right so now i can reach the wheel better and it doesnt block the view of the turn signals. some say they dont like how it makes the signal lever so far, but I like it. Its prolly cause im just learning and my hands move a little more frantic, but theres been acouple times ive accidently turned the signal on tossin the wheel.lol

    rear strut bar is from the man right on top of u. All hetero
    Hes even offering em powder coated which looks better than my paint job. good seller offering a good E30 product, support it

    Front strut is from Ireland Engineering. along with the rear sway support and shock mounts. which i unfortunately returned cause i kinda need some extra holiday cash since im going to Frisco. i shoulda thought before selfishly spending money all on myself.

    strut bars struttin

    kts? weve probably meet but im not sure who u are on the forum.haha
    anyway, thanks for stoppin by

    And yea. I had actually already replaced the 2 prong one a while ago. I dont know what I was thinking.haha I was on the phone talkin to someone else change theirs so i was like, oh i should change mine. then i saw both online and didnt look at my car before ordering.

    so i got the 2 prong sensor for sale!

    kts, I was able to install the rear strut bar first, then the front bar while i put in the coolant gauge sensor. The front bar was a bit tough but i just had to lean on it and it popped in. My problem is that the bar touches the motor. I just did motor and tranny mounts so i know thats where it should be. anyone else have this problem on their IE bar??

    if I loosen the bolts and pull the bar up in the middle I can see it not touch. but when tight its layin on the manifold. I learned from the last bar that was in here its not good to rub and i can hear it when it rubbed.

    this is the bar sold by White325is. It fit great and all the welds were nice and deep. If u get a raw one u must paint it or it rusts. which is probably why he doesnt sell em raw anymore. especially if theyre sittin around waiting for buyers. i had to sand a lil rust off the welds to clean before layin down paint

    And part numbers..i was kinda confused as to which sensor was which so ill put the numbers here.
    the bosch labeled packaging is the 2 prong sensor for fuel system or whatever
    You are correct, the 1 prong sensor is for the temp gauge in the cluster and the 2 prong is for the DME/ECU.

    They both go into the thermostat housing. The 1 prong sensor is more towards the front of the car and is easy to remove, it's a 2 minute job to swap. The 2 prong sensor is a bit harder to get out since the fuel rail is in the way. Some people have been able to get their sockets/wrenches/crow's foot to that one and get it out but I wasn't so lucky and I've been lazy. Most folks either remove the fuel rail or pull the thermostat housing out and do it that way.

    Probably overkill for just under the hood, the temps of that bar won't get too high, I think regular primer would have been enough. That paint is more for the engine or exhaust.

    The paint job on the bar looks good! Hopefully it just pops on and you can install it easily with your still-recovering shoulder. I had to jack my car up by the crossmember to get the shock towers to separate enough to get my bar to fit. It was a tight squeeze.

    second coat, gold coat, then clear coat!!!

    After the primer I wanted to put on some white. that way my main color has a solid, consistent color to shine off. all cans were purchased from Lowes cause I notice they always have more options than autozone. Autozone has some decent colors, especially car specific cans, but i like the hardware stores section for parts like this.

    Main color.
    i thought a while on this and i hope I got it right. i kinda wanted to go blue, which will match my next parts going under the hood but idk if I would have really liked the blue or if I would got the right shade of blue. 2 shades of blue under one hood would look like shit.
    so any way, more pics

    finished pic is probably going up in the AM when i have some natural light for a better shot. might even save the pic for it installed in the bay. well see if the shoulder allows it. just thought about how goofy itll look. dirty ass valve cover, intake manifold, bay, then a fresh fat strut bar. cant wait

    Im starting off with some high temp primer for this one only because its going to be under the hood. I couldnt find any decent high temp paints so the primer will be the only high temp thing under there. IDK if it even matters
