Yea.... last week when I dropped off my front bumper, the owner was there and we started bs'ing. He was telling me he can stain the front of my hood and quarter panels to hide the rock chips.... would only take like 45 minutes... Said it was not as permanent as a respray, but would hide the chips to where you couldn't see them. I guess I will find out more, it's almost like they make a stain out of the oem paint and rub it in.... I have never heard of that before.

Yeah..... I am considering it if the price is right. Honestly, the car is 10 years old and has 150k miles.... redoing paint is not a priority

So I bought the kit off a forum member who never installed it. I'm hoping he still has his original receipt. It seems pretty obvious that they screwed up at Stoptech because the boxes are numbered and not only did they send me two front left kits but they sent two extra carriers and an extra set of lines oh and NO front pads.
