No the hose is not attached to the strut at the moment because the tab on the strut is too thick to allow the hose to fit in to the slot. Is basically irrelevant as the new coilovers don't have a tab to fit them, and the car isn't getting driven any moreIt doesn't look the the brake hose is secured to the strut. And did you have a brake fluid leak onto the splash shield?
My third brake light housing was like that a few years back. I was lucky enough to find a nice one at one at one of those junkyards west of Phoenix in a wrecked Corolla that had obviously spent most of its life in a snowbird's home state. Now it's also becoming white and brittle, so time for another Saturday spent prowling the recycling yards.I removed the rear speakers today... Both had woofers that didn't work and one of them had no sound at all. Now I'm going to start looking for new speakers again. They lasted ~4.5 years in the Phoenix heat so I can't complain too much. And they were only something like $50 for the pair.
Also the 3rd brake light housing pretty much disintegrated when I removed it. Sort of sad about that. I'll get over it..... and done.
I have used plastidip on a few exposed surfaces like door frames and center console. 3 years on and its still fine. It should work for sometime, but phoenix is probably a lot harsher than southern Europe in temps and sun, take this with "a grain of salt". Just make sure to clean and degrease the surface very well, makes a huge difference in adhesion.I'm thinking about going to the yard tomorrow for one. If I find a decent one I'm thinking about painting it. Will that help protect it at all? Plastidip?
