HRP Coilover Covers

I saw these on Gearheads website and was wondering if anyone else is using them?

They look like they might be a good purchase, my coilovers have some minor rust spots on the threads and I would like to prevent them from worsening this winter.

What a rip.

With a little ingenuity you can make something better for less.

I think anti-seize on the threads would work better than this since those sleeves don't completely seal off moisture from getting in.

don't think you can put these on and forget about your coilovers. i've actually heard of people who used these (or something similar) and they ended up keeping dirt/moisture in and actually pre-maturely corroded the coilovers.
