Get them coated, I’ve sent mine to Xtreme fuel systems, they are getting cerakoted, I’ll post photos when I get them back 

Please do! What turnaround time and ballpark cost are you looking at for getting it done? Or do you just chuck them in with all the other parts you are getting coated?

I like the idea of coating them but not having wipers at all for a while feels a bit sketchy.

Sorry, didn’t consider that, I’m used to GTR life, where wait times aren’t considered. 
to get them coated wouldn’t be more then $50, but you would need someone close to you for efficiency. 
My guy could do them in a couple of days if it was urgent but if your posting would be a nightmare on wait time. 
and you’d be fkd if you got caught in the rain. 
I know with the GTR new arms are close to $300, not sure with your car. But coating wouldn’t or should I say shouldn’t be more the $50

Soda blast and paint with rattle can in a single day.

I tried painting mine, let’s just say I’m no painter! Lol 

I didn’t soda blast though, just hit it with some 400 wet/dry paper

Hah, no worries! I'm not OP, so their situation might be different. I appreciate the suggestion. Will keep the coating option in mind when some overdue other rust work is scheduled one day and the car is out anyway. My main fear is starting on something like that, getting it all fresh and nice and then noticing how all the other bits around it look a bit worse for wear in comparison. It would never end!

Sounds like every project that I have ever worked on

    • Is there a particular model of the box that is recommended and where are you sourcing it from? This has me pretty interested as well for my 1JZ (currently with the standard A343 box). Also very interested to see how the turbolamik TCU goes. Is Tuned Performance assisting with this too? 
    • I've never used or seen that kit. project mu have a serious reputation in braking but there is a lot of information missing from that listing like type and style of dogbone, is the disc solid or full floating to the hats etc. It also mentions they run '1 synchronised pad per piston' which sounds overly complex solution to a non-problem to me. Also no information on price or availability of replacement pads or rotor rings If I was looking for something that serious I'd go AP racing or perhaps Brembo as they have plenty of users and good availability, but in any case something like Just Jap ATTKD are proven and less than half the price (assuming that listing is USD)
    • does anyone have any experience with the project mu forged sports 4-piston kit for the GTRs? it's a front brake bolt-on kit, 355mm x 32mm forged aluminum 41mm piston 4 pads / caliper from my experience with the brand in the past, they make pretty solid stuff, so i figured this would be a nice upgrade for the R33. anyone here have experience with these? the site search didn't really yield any results, just posts about brake pads, mostly. cheers!
    • I vaguely remember there was something about it when I did my plates/subframe bushes but it might have just been a forum post I read. 
    • Now installed, fun times as the GKtech manual makes no mention of modifying the subframe brackets/brace plates. Needed to lop off the hump as the GKtech subframe bushes are flat and don't have an indent. Heaps of swearing later, it's in 🥳
