If you have been following the initial thread re the front springs then you will know that Eibach have agreeded to remake the original Renault Trophy, Cup Spec spring for us.

A kind member has lent me a pair to send to Eibach to measure, test etc etc..so project 2 is underway.

They have asked the question what colour we want the rear spring powder coating??

My thoughts are original black colour which is rather boring given we can have any colour of the rainbow. But I am just thinking for the originality of looks?

Please add any colours or thoughts you may wish?

I think black as well. Maybe with Trophy stamped on them in silver?

As nice as red ones might be, black is OEM, and I think that will hold most sway with members.

I agree. Black would be my preferred choice.

I would strongly agree with black.

Eibach already do red along with Mark fish.

If we get black units we can add our own Red & White cup markings if people want to to try and keep the OE look 100%

In terms of them being a replica of the original springs they should in my mind be black, with perhaps as others have suggested; a Trophy specific marking somewhere?

As per the above threads....they will be black.

They will come with some form of part number to ref the trophy/cup I’d suggest in either silver or red.

Re logo’s...I think that will be a step to far.

The Trophy logo was a non starter from the off but if you don't ask.......
I think as long as both front and back have a recognisable mark/ref to identify them as copies but copies made to the Trophy specification then I suspect most will be happy.

Great work by the way.

Hi new to the forum, in need of rear springs and in black with trophy markings sounds great. Is it possible to get some?
