Diggin the brake calipers.

Make sure to stay on top of the brake dust, and always buy quality brake pads. I bought generics once from autozone or oreillys once and you just couldnt keep up with the brake dust and crap that came off of those pieces of junk.

Thanks man! I definitely love the way they turned out! Love the white on black!

I actually got black lugs when I painted the calipers. Definitely looks better!

Any tips on doing the dip on the headlights? and can someone else see your blinkers at night (when covered up by the dip?)

I'd like to dip mine the same way.

On the headlights, I used tail light tint. All the lights show through just fine. Take your time on masking the headlight off. Make sure you get the edges pressed down smooth. Then just go with light coats on the tint until you get your desired darkness.

OK. So its basically Niteshade and not dip on the headlights. OK. Thanks. I wasn't sure.

Again. Looks great.

Thanks man! It definitely made the front end have a more aggressive look to it.

Finished product of my lunchbox delete.


Drop in filter. (Took some modding to get this one to work.)

I ordered Eibach Sportline lowering springs on Friday. Should be getting here Tuesday or Wednesday. I plan to get them on before the weekend.
