Totally depends on what you want. He can get decals made for the work like you see on my car, or just do it masked by hand for easier stuff. More colours equals more cost. Email him or I can give you his mobile phone number for a quote.

Jeremy.
The major advantages are 2 things:

1. More camber change in the fast corners
2. Less roll in the rear

It is not a HUGE difference but definately noticable.

Bearings

i pulled my car 75% down today, removed and looked at all the ball bearings on the whole drive train. I noticed quite a lot of dirt and grit, despite the fact i often use an air compressor. i was wondering which of you have replaced the ball bearings with teflon ones? if not, how do you find the most effective way of cleaning and maintaining them? here in aust, i'm finding it hard to get my hands on a proper bearing cleaning tool, such as the one made by RPM. i've been told just to spray with motor spray, and place a drop or two of bearing oil...but i wanted to ensure that the bearings are best looked after, seeing as they are either holding up the tension in the drive train, or allowing a much more free flowing power throughout from the motor output.

some thoughts on this would be great. thanks guys...

Wallmart, plastic vibrating jewelry cleaner is $15. So far the plastic has held up to most solvents and mild carb cleaners, but not the really harsh carb cleaners.
