Yeah, I guess I will, I was hoping the coating would last though, my sister has had these on her car for a few months, no rust for her yet, on the hubs....

Beautiful car OP....keep it going. Look into a fender roll before you start adding spacers....pretty much a necessity with this car...
Yea I DEFINITELY suggest painting the hubs and the tops before Id install. Not to mention its A LOT easier to paint them off the car as oppose to on. Mask them, spray them, let them dry over night and install the next day. Plus IMO gloss black hubs look great. Ill try to find a pic of what mine looked like..

I think that he meant the outside edges of the rotors.

I finally got all of my parts in, and I took the car to the body shop a few days ago. I'm so pumped, I should have it back in about a week!!! Will post pics in a new thread when I get it back! My whole front end will be transformed!
