Ooo yeah Plastidip is an excellent base for other paint. I painted orange on top of mine and it help up very well.. A little too good actually.. I couldn't get it off lol. So make sure you make the dip very thick!

Performance brakes:

Well this is sort of a $30 improvement....2 sets of ceramic brake pads and 2 sets of cross drilled and slotted zinc plated rotors..that's 4 items for $89 or $22 each! : )

Off of Ebay from the seller brakemotive76, he includes S&H! (and no that's not me, i just thought it was a killer deal)

Brakes look real good! Your next mod should be a set of $20.00 jackstands. Safety first!
