Helping the SleepyBoy

So went to visit Paul who was working on his brakes since the night before with Coty.

We kinda had a mini-work-on-the-cars-meet ... and Coty even showed back up.

Enjoy the pics:

Paul working on the brakes:


Paul thinking I won't take pics ... It's ME ... I always take pics:


Good look at the components


The Seats Paul is waiting for brackets on


My car and Paul's


Coty Showing up


another shot of everything ... is that a UDP back there


I think Coty smelled something funky


The three of us


Showing the guys about Slower Shutter speeds at night.


Lastly ... getting Oil for Paul's car from where else ... Wally-World

Thanks guys and sorry I didn't invite ya'll it was sort of a last min. thing going on. Coty and I are up all night and I was changing my brakes and Coty said "you need help I'm on my way over" and I was like sure come on over one thing led to another lol. Well Coty and I were up till I think it was 7am enough to see the sun come up. We were bs-ing around and stuff at Wallyworld (we stripped a star bit and needed another to finish). Then painting was taking a long time too. It never really dried too good ether it was still tacky in some spots. So we put a final coat on and called it a night/day. I woke up and started putting it back together and needed some help pumping the brakes so I called Raymond and he came over. I was giving Coty some sleep time since he put in some hrs yesterday/today already lol. Raymond got there and Coty said he'd come back by the next day to help put it together so Raymond called him and lickity split he showed up and the party began lol.

Oh and Raymond and Coty it was my brake line that was leaking. I guess when we let the car down it unscrewed itself alittle. I tightened it back up and so far no more leaks. Still breaking the brakes in though. It is firmer than before.

Has for the UDP it a Unorthodox Racing pulley just like the one in the sport compact car that they used. Kinda why I looked for it too. There is alot of look alikes on e-bay. I had to ask the seller what kind it was cause he didn't know. I try to stay away from those mass produced e-bay store specials. I look for one with real pictures taken by the sellers camera not ones that have the same image. Here is the link to the article about my UDP
http://www.sportcompactcarweb.com/pr...t_2/index.html


Also guys here is the link to my brake pictures I put the thread in the showroom cause I didn't know if I could post it here in the tx forum.
My new brakes (pics) 56k *yeah right*
