They are covers. Here is a link to an example LINK

The rears that I replaced were 11 year old GC coilovers, they loosened up real easy. I do not plan on changing the height once I have it set. I only spent $100 for replacement parts. They will get me by untill the struts go, then I will consider some BC's

Decided to install my Blaupunkt mids in the front doors since I received new Alpine tweeters. I decided to put the tweeters in the speaker grills instead of in the door panel.

Tweeters


Old reliable mids (Left-over from my boosted colt's build a few years ago)


Speaker grill with crossover installed


Grill from the front

Got her tinted today. 20% all around, lifetime warranty for $149.99. These guys did my swapped 91 Colt in 2015 and they still do great work. Now just need to get the windshield replaced and paint the hood.

Found the wheel color I like from Dupli-Color Wheel coating and tested it on my spare wheel. Got the finishing touch in from Riga, Latvia. Now to power wash the the wheels on the car and paint/sticker them.

That is the goal. I figure the lettering will offset the colors enough to separate them. I expect the front Brembo's and rear calipers (soon to be dark blue since they need paint anyway) should kept is a subdued mod look (I hope). Worst case, a matching blue line around the outer lip of the rims might be needed. We will see.
