New brakes = new pics! (56k warn.)

So last week me and Mr.Bergner met up and installed my new brake shoes and painted my drums black. It was a fun time, and was great meeting a local that was a regular member on this site.
Here's a couple pics of that:





Yesterday I installed my new EBC slotted and dimpled rotors, and EBC greenstuff pads. It was really easy and I learned a lot by doing it myself. Here's a couple pics I took of that.

Out with the old:


In with the new:


So today I washed my car up and took some new pics.
















I'm running for ROTM, so please vote for me!
I still have a lot more plans before FocusFest 08.
Thanks for looking. Let me know what you think.

i did the same mods in march and doesn't it make a world of a difference compared to old pads and shoes? what are your opinions? fyi the helicopter noise from the rotors never goes away...and it's awesome!

Yeah, I heard that noise when I tested them out today. It does sound pretty sweet. lol.
The brakes aren't at full potential until about 1000 miles or so, but they are already way better than the old ones.
Soon, I'm going to change out the brake fluid and install my russel stainless brake lines.
I'll really notice a big difference then. Should be a real nice setup.
I'll also paint my front calipers red when I get around to it.
I didn't go with svt brakes since I use 15" OEM wheels for my winter setup.
They wouldn't fit under those, plus I didn't like the price of the svt brakes anyway.
I'm sure I'll be very happy with this setup, and I think it looks great.

Thanks. They are dimpled and slotted, not drilled.
I just installed them yesterday, so I have yet to see how they wear.
