Ive got jacks, stands, and an impact wrench

Im going to need to switch to my summers soon ish too

These truck tires seriously dont agree with this weather. My driveway has strips of rubber where I always brake to park my car... like a drag strip has at the beginning where they do burnouts

Ok so summer projects:
1. Learn to Weld, Bend Pipe, and Cut Pipe (Need to make a sucessful exhaust)
2. Learn how the hell to make all this plastic molding that everyone wants me too do. (Sounds Expensive)
3. Learn how to build CF Stuff. (Starting with a Dinan Style CF CAI).

Good luck. The bends on those exhausts are no fun.

I might go the magnaflow route at some point... just muffler though.

GF-Performance to the rescue!
g2, duplicolor...those are decent brake caliper paints.
i went with glasurit on my brembos...but that is overkill to most....

if you are seriously interested, i can get pretty good pricing on all available stoptech kits. that is true for brembo kits as well.
