Prob not the best quality, but I do have a hobby lobby right down the road from me so I'll check about getting better brushes there.

I haven't discovered it yet lol! I could tell a strut was bad when it was on a lift as the wheel/tire was pretty easy to move. I'm also guessing the mounting plate at the top could be bad/loose.

I will add that if a dealer offers you at or...

Ultimately I think I'll need the hood and the trunk deck sprayed. But I'm going slow and seeing what I can do.
