I've been thinking about it. Haven't really made up my mind yet. Finding one already painted would go a long way in helping me make a decision.

Mine didn't have holes. It was clean underneath. Just double sided tape holding the molding on.

Kind of have to now. But oh well. Destroyed rear hub bearing gives me the motivation.

So on my way home yesterday from coffee and cars, my rear passenger hub bearing decides to implode. Luckily the hub nut held and I was able to limp home. So my rear svt disc swap has been moved up a little on the time table. I'll be posting pics as it progresses.

The heat burned the paint off of the drum.



Bearing pieces and destroyed pads.

Update time! Got the rear discs on. Also installed Steeda STS. Pics time!

New spindles and new bearings pressed into used hubs.




Emergency brake swap. Was pretty easy once you get the heat shielding out of the way.






Spindles and hubs




Bracket to hold the new brake line.




Rotors, calipers and brake line.





Finished! And a pic of the STS!

Where'd you get the black side markers?
I can't find them anywhere!
ALSO
Did you paint your housings(i.e. the bake, separate and paint method)?
Or did you buy aftermarket headlamps?
