Brett, by the way. The brake pads are Hawk HPS pads front and back with Russell stainless steel brake lines.

I'm going to try and take more video tomorrow. I'm going to add some foam over the mic on the camera to clean up wind noise.

Don,

Thought the pads felt pretty good. I couldn't remember what your said they were. The svt hawk pads seem to dust more than the regular focus hawk pads.

This one is a little better. I uploaded several today but this one is most enjoyable.

Did a thing today. Upper grill looked like crap so I painted it satin black. Looks better than greyish white.

I'm sure it will last much longer. The restoration stuff only seems to last a few days.

I've heard that too. I didn't have a heat gun. The grill was to the point where prior to sanding I could brush powder of it due to sun wear. Not sure if heat would have worked.

Great looking ZX3. [thumb]
Keep us posted with updates.
Thanks! Haven't had as much free time as I wanted this summer and had some medical things eat up my extra money... Being an adult and paying bills responsibly sucks[giddy].

Hoping to replace the passenger axle shaft here soon. The AutoZone P.O.S. in the car is starting to clunk and I am certain that the carrier bearing is bad as well...

Brett, just passing along some information on the calipers. They were already painted black with the Duplicolor brake enamel. If anything, they just need to be retouched. I took them off and cleaned them with a ton of brake cleaner before even putting paint on the surface. So I am sure the paint is still good on them.

The paint was good except where I scratched it. Still need to complete the rear swap.[giddy]
